I need to add a movie clip (read me button) inside a scroll area. i tried droping the movie clip inside the scroll area but it didnt work.

the text of the scroll area comes from an outer text file (html file), what i am working on is a templatemonster template.

theres no actual function provided in flash to do this, i've had this problem before myself and ended up having to create my own scrollbar code controlling the _y position of the movie clip and using a mask.

there is a method of adding a swf or movie clip to a dynamic text field using the <img> tag, but i havent used this before so i cant speak for how well it works or whether it suits what you're trying to do

if i correctly understanded your problem. you want too add a movieclip to a scrollPane that has text in it.
you can add text to a text field and then add that textfield and movieclip in another movieclip and at last set scrollpane.contentPath to the linkage identifier of that big movieclip
