I have searched all over the web trying to understand how a Text component gets it's scrollbars

I have a long text that I "add" to a Text component,
The Text component's attribute height and width is set to "parent", that is the sceen,
however neither on the N9 or on Windows 7 any scrollbar appear to the right side
which I expected it would.

When searching for ListView on the web I only see solutions including multiple qml files and ListElement "solutions".

Is there not an easier way to just place Text component on the screen and it will get scrollbar
to the right in case the string given to Text is to large to fit on the screen ?
