TextArea scrollbar

Is there a way to enable the vertical scrollbar of a text area while leaving the text area itself disabled? In other words, a user can not enter text but can scroll through the text. Anybody know? Thanks!

Do you mean that there's text in the area and you want to be able to scroll it without it being editable? Just set the "editable" property of the text area false.
