I want to create a customised scrollbar in Flash MX but here’s the catch: I want it to scroll both text AND images (i.e. scroll another movieclip with various content), NOT just a textbox.
The tutorial here http://www.kirupa.com/developer/flash8/scrollbar.htm is EXACTLY what I want, however I’ve followed the instructions to a tee and it does not work as it’s supposed to. As soon as you click on the scroller it jumps to co-ordinates (0,0) and the up and down arrows don’t work at all - no scrolling happens whatsoever. I am thinking this is because the code was written for Flash 8 and not MX… So can anyone tell me if this is possible to do in Flash MX???
I’ve also followed the tutorial http://www.kirupa.com/developer/mx/skinning_scrollbar.htm which was great and I’ve had no problems with customising the scrollbar - however this is only good for scrolling a textbox.
If anyone can help out it would be most appreciated! At least if someone could let me know if it’s possible in MX that would be a start…
Thanks heaps in advance,
