Sorry, chaps; previous offering a bit goofy.
This one runs "instantly" and clears the top of the screen
set the lockScreen to true
set the height of stack "Sizer" to 1200
set the lockScreen to false
set the topleft of stack "sizer" to 40,100
The inevitable question has to be; "Why do you want a stack that is taller than the screen?"
If I want a lot of "real estate" I do something like this:
Make a graphic/field/what-have-you that is the desired size (e.g. 400, 1400) then Group it (with itself - this sounds funny but is very effective), then set the Group size to fit within the screenRect and give it a vertical scrollbar. I have used this quite effectively using a sideways scrolling PNG image (3 times the width of the screen) for EFL learners to 'discover' stuff for grammar exercises.
sincerely, Richmond Mathewson.
