Hi all

I just wants to know that in Flash5, can we put a vertical scrolling text with some images or some Flash objects in it ?????? can we group them & scroll them together in a specific area???

If anybody interested, I'll attach the design.

Is there any tutorial for the same???

I'd say yes if every elements(text field, graphics) are in one movieclip...
Tell me more and let's see what's coming out from there... :)

Hi CyanBlue

Thanks for showing intrest in my problem...
I'm attaching the gif file of the design... pls. take a look...

You can see the light blue background, on that background you can see the text & the images of 'Download & Feedback'. there are other images coming under the text which you can't see it now, after scroll you can see them...

you can also see in right side the orange up & down arrows besides the light blue background, as we click on them, the text & the images will scroll vertically... up & down...

The light blue background is the specific area in which the text & the images scrolls...

I think this will help you to understand my problem...

Just thought that I'd say you've helped me a load too ... I was just about to post up the same question;)

07-01-2002, 03:33 PM
Then you will have to wire me 2 cents too... :p

You're welcome... Glad to help you out... :)

That would make it 39 cents, considering that the US post stamps just went up again... :)

You're on to a fortune here :cool:

Um... Abelius... I say WIRE, not by the mail... hehe... Yup... it went up again... geez... up and up and up and up... Has it been at least a year since the last raise???

Yup... Fortune it is... Once that 2 cents gets 20 dollars... It will be the donation money for AS... Well... I wish I could do something physical and effective for AS, but not iwth $$$ especially when you have no job or no source of income... Dang... where did all the jobs go??? Anybody know where I can get a job??? Well... my brother-in-law told me to get a job at the McDonald... :p
Anyhow, as long as I get foutunate, AS will... :)

Ok so I want to use and modify your scroller with images, I actually don't need to use text at all, just images. The problem is the scroller refers to _root. stuff when determining scrolling and such.

I put all you info images and layers and frames into a movie clip called

I also want to make is scroll from left to right instead of top to bottom, I figure if i just rotate the movie clip and repostition the buttons that should work right?

Any help would be great.

Ok, so I decided to load the swf externally. It loads fine, it scrolls my images fine, problem, if I put

this._x = 150;
this._y = 235;

Into the loaded swf, the scroller function stops?

I'm using

on (release) {
loadMovieNum ("characterscroller.swf", 1);

On a button in my main swf file "characters" bubble
