Scroll bar does not appear in tab group.

7 views (last 30 days)
I have an app which contains a tab group which I need to be scrollable. I have enabled the 'scrollable' property for the tab, but cannot figure out how to get the scrollbar to actually appear. I have tried stretching, shrinking and even just running the code with stuff spilling out the edges to see if it appeared when ran... but with no progress.
I cannot share my real code, but I have attached a simple duplicate which has 'scrollable' enabled and no scroll bar appearing. I would appreciate any guidance that can be offered here.

According to the documentation:
Setting this property to 'on' enables scrolling within the container. However, there are additional requirements:
  • The child components in the container must occupy a larger area than the container can display at one time.
  • Components that do not fit in the container must be above or to the right of the container. You cannot scroll to components that are below or to the left of the container.
I just tested this behaviour and it works as described in R2022b. If it doesnt for you please mention the version and os you are using.

Thanks. I had tried that and it did not work. However, after reading this I went back and added a panel in to which I put the edit fields and positioned that as you described... and that worked.
