still, this gives the page of the cursor, not the page of the viewer, which
when scrolling, can be different
from what i could see XViewDataSupplier does not have this data

we want this data to implement a location indicator similar to that on iOS
browsers, on the iOS app, using iOS UI controls.
Is it possible to extract this data from the libreoffice VCL scrollbar
elements using UNO, instead of calculating it ourselves?
