How Can I Create a Scrollable Text Box in TI-89 Programming?

In summary, Nathan is looking for a solution to create a scrollable text box with more than one line and the ability to add a title. He has tried using the dialog and text commands but has encountered issues with both. He is open to suggestions and solutions from others.

Hi there,

I’ve come across a problem I can’t seem to solve. What I want to do is make a text box that with scrollable information. For example, when you do “One Var Stats” on the Stats and List Editor where it has all the information you scroll through and only the “Enter=OK” button. I’ve tried this using dialog and using text by itself. When I use dialog, that always inserts the enter=ok AND esc=cancel at the end of the dialog, so I’m fairly sure I don’t use that. But, when I just use the text command (even outside of dialog) there is no way to add a title or more than one line (this does only have the enter=ok, though). I’m assuming the scrolling function could just use getkey and then some clever coding with strings for the output unless there’s an easier way.

I’d appreciate any solutions you may have!

-Nathan
