Re: Scrollable text?

Depends on what you want to do with the text and how you want the scrolling to work.

Most obvious/simple combination is a ScrollView with a multiline Label on it.

You could also use a WebView or a TextArea (presumably non-editable) on the ScrollView, or build your own custom component.
