Combining Scroll with serial display?

Okay, so it took me like 4 hours to wire up my lcd, now that i finally got it working i have used some of the examples that come with arduino 018 and i wanted to know if it was possible to set it so that whenever i send a long message through COM12(the serial monitor) it will scrolll like in the autoscroll example. I have tried combining the two it compiles but doesnt display anything on the lcd =\

If what you have doesn't work, we could help fix it. If we could see it.
