* Makes an F(BOX)TEXT object scrollable if MagiC is running.
*
* If  is FALSE, only the text field will be converted
* to a user character string.
*
* In the RCS, the text field should be left empty, but the template
* and the validation character string have to be input, as the RCS
* will strike otherwise.
* For scrolling fields a new template has to be created, as the
* one registered in the .RSC file cannot be used since it is too
* short. The template created here consists only of '_' characters,
* since this covers 99.9% of all applications for scrolling objects.
* The length of the validation string is immaterial. i.e. has to be
* at least 1, as the AES automatically duplicates the validation
* string until the length of the text field has been filled.
*
* The maximum length for the input character string is in every case
* (TEDINFO.te_txtlen - 1).
