Is it possible to use scripts to scroll the window to the top in SAP Personas?

We're making a Persona with a vertical layout that causes some screens to be pretty tall.

We have NEXT and PREVIOUS script buttons at the bottom of the screen... these buttons primarily change the content that appears in the main window. If possible, we would also like to have the window scroll all of the way to the top when these buttons are pressed.

Typically, you can use javascript to control window scroll, but the methods we've tried have had no effect. Normally, either of these two methods would work:

window.scrollTop = 0;

When those didn't work, we tried targeting the window itself by ID...

session.findById("wnd[0]").scrollTop = 0;

... and then tested targeting the "user area" instead of the window:

session.findById("wnd[0]/usr").scrollTop = 0;

None of the above methods caused the window to scroll.

Is it possible to control window scroll with scripting? Thanks!


We're currently running:

    There is no way to do this from a Personas script as far as I'm aware.

    I use the following commands within SAP GUI Scripting:

        session.findById("wnd[0]").sendVKey 80 'Ctrl + PageUp
        session.findById("wnd[0]").sendVKey 81 'PageUp
        session.findById("wnd[0]").sendVKey 82 'PageDown
        session.findById("wnd[0]").sendVKey 82 'Ctrl + PageDown

    • I tried this too and it didn't work in a Personas script. Referring to "wnd[0]" only, it resulted in a script error, and using "wnd[0]/usr" had no effect.

      Probably specific to SAP GUI scripting only.
