Table Control Scrolling

I'm creating a test sequencer which has a table which lists all the tests and
whether they pass, fail or are in progress. I've been to color the background
depending on the test status (red = fail, green = pass, blue = in progress). My
problem is that the list is too long to fit on the screen, and I would like to
have the list automatically scroll up to keep the current test visible on the
screen. Any ideas on how I can accomplish that?

Thanks

This can be done by writing to the Edit Position attribute in LabVIEW 5 or
property in LabVIEW 6. To write to this property create an attribute node
(LV5) or property node (LV6) and select Edit Position.

Assuming that you know how many items are in the table, you
can set the scroll position using an attribute or property
node. You will be setting the top left cell number, so that
is why you will need to know the size.

Thanks for the reply. After playing around a little, I found that I could
scroll to any row by setting the Table Attribute-Edit Position to the row and
column I want, which will bring that row to the bottom of the visible portion
of the table.

Thanks again.
