Getting the scroll offset of a UIWebView is currently only possible through undocumented methods. It would be much better if this was documented.

Steps to Reproduce:

Expected Results:
One would expect that there would be a way to programmatically scroll a UIWebView. It would be great if there were a properly on UIWebView to get and set the scroll position and possibly the visible rect.

Actual Results:
This used to be possible by using undocumented methods on UIScroller (which is also undocumented), but is no longer an option as applications using undocumented API calls are now rejected.


I understand that you have chosen not to document UIScroller and the rest of the UIWebView internals (such as UIWebDocumentView). I am just asking for some of the scrolling functionality to be exposed.
