The concept is that the content rect has to be larger than the visible 
area. One way to do that is to set the field height/width the same as 
its formattedHeight/width and then group it to provide a smaller viewing 

The other way is to set the content rect of the native scroller to the 
formattedrect of the field, and lock the visible field rect at a smaller 
size. You can still set the scroll of the field regardless of how much 
is visible at any time.
