Form-Field: how to block automatic "alignment"?

I have a some form-fields with offscreen chars.

The first thing I found out about the offscreen-stuff,
is that it is not the number of chars offscreen.

I have for example 60 chars, 10 onscreen,
50 offscreen, then I have to use a value of 5
for offscreen-parameter, not the value 50!

This was astouning to mee.

OK, so I have adapted my thinking to this.

Now, when I type in some words into that field,
long words, that do not fit to the onscreen-part will be shifted
into the offscreen-part, which then ist shown on the screen...
...and the old words, wheich were viewable on the screen first then are
offscreen, but left sided of the viewabble area.

How can I get the form_driver to avoid such word-based "alignment"?

I want to have the viewable area shifted char-by-char,
as I type into the field.
