I changed the FControl in TControlScrollbar into a TWincontrol. Most of code
only works if the FControl is a TScollingWinControl. For all other it does
Now it's time for implementation.
The TMemoScrollBar should be mostly readonly, but the position property. The
TControlScrollbar is currently quite the opposite. It updates the position
due to messages and set all other values (min, max, page) and even
calculates the visibility itself.
Therefore TControlScrollbar should for non-TScrollWinControls only read the
values from the interface and raise an exception on writing the properties.
TMemoScrollbar should implement SetPosition.
TMemo must create/destroy the two TMemoScrollbar.
So, we need functions to read
Increment, Page, Min, Max, Range, Size, Position, Smooth
and a function to set the
I think, we can simple use GetScrollInfo and SetScrollInfo.
