Height of roImageCanvas

If I have more images than can be displayed on the imageCanvas that fits a TV screen, is it possible to somehow keep putting images "off-screen" which will come in to view when the user navigates by pressing the down button on the remote?

Basically: is it possible to "scroll" on an roImageCanvas?

ImageCanvas is not really fast enough to do scrolling, and not really the right screen for what you are attempting to do. Take a look at roScreen.

If you do not require scrolling you can create hidden layers and use setlayer, swaplayers to show or hide layers as the user navigates, such as in a paging system
