I think what I'm looking for is a way to have it not apply any updates for a few frames. In the same way includeInLayout set to false causes it to be skipped in the layout, something similar to prevent any updates to scroll position. On Tue, Jul 13, 2010 at 3:54 AM, dorkie dork from dorktown

I’m having trouble picturing an accordion with scrollbars. But if it did, why wouldn’t the scrollbar be tuned for the total number of children? Why are children being added as you scroll? On 7/12/10 6:59 PM, dorkiedorkfromdorkt...@gmail.com dorkiedorkfromdorkt...@gmail.com wrote: In
