Scrollbars up and down to change the positions of the text

Kindly tell me how I can make scrollbars up and down to change the positions of the text. I am using this link (https://processing.org/examples/scrollbar.html) but it does not work for me.
I am waiting for a response.

Does the answer by Phironn at https://forum.processing.org/one/topic/vertical-scrollbar.html work for you?

its not working in my project because I need a text which is able to scroll up and down. This example use two scroll and two images. but I need one scroll and text.

see the image 1, 2, 3 texts is not moving vertically. I want its move vertical. The second issue is scroll display in all screen but I need it only in one screen (see images). I am using Yet Another GUI Library (YAGUIL) for screen designs.

Do you want this in java processing or in Android?

I wouldn’t recommend to scroll within a screen button. That would be bad GUI design.

I want in android processing.

@Sajeel1995 ===
I do agree with @Chrisir : adding scroll to a button is not the good solution; you have to create a TextView or a WebView or a ScrollView then add to it the scroll; choosing one or other depends of your goal

TextView v = the TextView you created (new instance of…)
////adding scroll
v.setMovementMethod(new ScrollingMovementMethod());

thanks for answering me.

From the example you need to init the class and display the scroll bar

This is the core line:

// Get the position of the img1 scrollbar
// and convert to a value to display the img1 image
float img1Pos = hs1.getPos()-width/2;

When you say println(img1Pos); you will see the values

Now use this value before text() command:

translate (0, img1Pos);

text( „Hello“, 22, 100);

here is a JAVA processing example

// Move the scrollbars left and right to change the positions of the images.


HScrollbar hs1;  //  scrollbar
