I've been searching for a solution for some time.. I'm not even sure it's possible, or if there is already one out there, but do you guys know of a canvas control (or some control) that allows you to place unlimited controls vertically on it (buttons, edit fields, etc.) and allow the user to scroll down to view and use those controls? I've seen this typically in Mac OS X applications, where there is a small window/dialog with a bunch of edit fields and the user can simply scroll down to fill those fields (as opposed to having to create a really tall window to unelegantly fit all those controls in. Thanks.

p.s. i know there are ways to hack it via canvas and scrollbars or containers but i'm looking for a ready made tested solution (paid is fine)

add a canvas control and some controls inside it.
add a scrollbar control

in scrollbar control value changed event write
canvas1.top = 0 - scrollbar1.value
