Not known


Scrolls the preview image (the part of the image displayed in the preview window) into the new position. Scrolling can be relative to current position or absolute.

Warning: Only use scrollPreview() in the OnCtl and OnFilterStart handlers, otherwise you will get some unwanted effects in the preview! Calling it several times in a loop also causes redraw problems. But if works fine if only used for moving the image in the preview to a certain position, if followed by doAction(CA_PREVIEW).

This function only work if the image is larger than the preview. If the image is fully displayed in the preview, this function has no effect.


scrollPreview(0, 100, 100) - scroll the preview image 100 pixels down and to the right

scrollPreview(0, -100, -100) - scroll the preview image 100 pixels up and to the left

scrollPreview(1, 0, 0) - display the the top left corner of the image in the preview

scrollPreview(1, 200, 200) - center the preview image at the coordinate (200,200)

scrollPreview(1, X/2, Y/2) - display the center of the image in the preview
