Abstract

This article describes a method for associating separate lists of data in a windowing environment so that they may be scrolled vertically or horizontally in parallel. A list is a window comprised of a scrollable array of objects (normally text) ordered top to bottom. The technique described here extends the function of a traditional list windows in a windowing system, such as Microsoft Windows or the IBM OS/2 Presentation Manager.
