text with scroll bar in Flash 5
Hello, i have flash version and i would lke to knopw how to create a text field with a scroll bar. Is there a tutorial about it somewhere
I'm pretty sure there's one at www.actionscripts.org
Not too difficult: (using mx)
Select text tool (make sure drop-down menu in properties menu is set to dynamic) & drag out where u want text box.
Give it an instance name in the properties menu (like myText)
Drag out a scrollbar element from yer components menu (ctrl f7 if the menu ain't open) and place where u want it.
In yer properties menu, should see 2 fields: Target TestField
(should be set to yer instance name.
if not, click on it & give it the same instance
Horizontal either True or False (when making it false, may have to reposition where on the text box you want scroll bar.
