I couldn't find any examples of fully-matured scrollbars in Flash
which accurately mirror the functionality of standard Windows and Mac
OS scrollbars, so I made my own.|
The scrollbar thumb's _yscale property is adjusted at load time. This allows its size relative to the entire scrollbar size to accurately reflect the percentage of total content currently viewable in the visible area.
If you're not comfortable with masks and actionscript you may have a tough time incorporating this into your own movies.
Also available: a find and replace function for ActionScript. Not sure why this isn't just a method of the String object (hint hint Macromedia).
Feel free to examine/steal the source scroller.fla!
