I didn't try it, but - perhaps you could use SET_BLOCK_PROPERTY built-in and set BLOCKSCROLLBAR_POSITION property. It should make it possible to move scrollbar somewhere out of sight (for example, if form is wider than screen, you could move it to the far right end). Set this property dependant to :SYSTEM.CURSOR_RECORD system variable (if it is <= 50, move scrollbar out of sight; if it is > 50, "display" it).

Although, why would you want to do that? What's wrong with scrollbar visible all the time?

i tried it,
but i am not getting the output,
because i didn't find the property like "scroll_bar".

Well, perhaps it's me; I use Developer 10g which offers property I have mentioned in my previous post. Unfortunately, I don't have Forms 6i so I can't check whether it existed in that version or not. However: where did I mention "scroll_bar" property? 10g's property name is "BLOCKSCROLLBAR_POSITION".
