Best way to get smooth horizonital scrolling?
The contents of some windows need to scroll smoothly from right to left.. I would prefer to open a bitmap 3 or 4 times wider than the window and just increment a leftedge pointer somewhere.. redrawing only as I near the right edge of the big bitmap. I assume that SuperBitmap and GimmeZeroZero are the way to go, but I don't know yet how to control the left edge starting position.. Or I could be trying to do this the wrong way entirely. Clues and keywords gratefully requested. Thank You, LyleHaze

The function you need to use
The function you need to use to scroll a superbitmap window is ScrollLayer() from layers.library (use window->RPort->Layer for the layer pointer). I would post a source code example but I wasn't able to find the source code in question (it might be that it's on another machine or I may have deleted it by mistake). You can find more information about superbitmap windows here.

Thank You! I don't mind
Thank You! I don't mind looking it up myself, I just needed a lead on where to start.
