How to select lines in a field under a scroller in IOS

Devin, you are correct.   I have a LiveCode field wrapped in an IOS scroller.   I have been playing with various list behavior and autohilite properties.   Since I am trying to select multiple lines at the same time I am seeing a conflict between the behavior of the field and the scroller.

Looking at the behaviour of the native input control,  apple seems to use a double tap to get into a select mode.  They seem to turn off the scroll while the selection is taking place then turn it back on again.  

It seems that I need to figure out how to disable scrolling during the selection process and then enable it again.
