Thanks for the hints, Jan.

Yes, I am using 2.5 on Mac OS X.

I did that, but there is no entry for "on bar click". This is the setting
you can see in the inspector at the bottom.

Actually, I just want to set this value "on bar click" via a script, for a
scrollbar that has just been created. This value determines how much the
thumb jumps when the user clicks on the bar.

I tried:

put the onbarclick of scrollbar 1

but no output.
