In order to prevent the labels and static buttons from scrolling out of view
when you use the scroll bar, you should use the xgen tool called "list".
There are several types of lists:
Single (listtype:single) One selection at a time by clicking with the
Multiple (listtype:multiple) Several picks allowed by clicking with the
left mouse button. All selections remain highlighted.
Extended (listtype:extended) Several picks allowed by holding mouse
button down and dragging. All selections remain highlighted.
Browse (listtype:browse) Similar to extended except that only one
file is highlighted at a time.
The following xgen script can be used as an example:
#define cent alignment:center
#define back background:white
#define fore foreground:white
label "This is an Example"
x:0 y:0 cent back ;
x:0 y:30 width:100 fore cent
/* The button below is only an example */
x:0 y:280 width:80 alignment:center
runforeground:"cd $LOCATION/paint; if test \"[reporter]\"; then echo 'vector [reporter]' >> $FILENAME; fi"
