View Full Version : Using UIScrollbar with Flex

04-20-2008, 02:12 AM
I'm trying to use the fl.controls.UIScrollbar component in an Actionscript 3 project, compiled with mxmlc, but I keep getting the error " Error: Definition fl.controls:UIScrollBar could not be found." I'm assuming that the fl.* library isn't included with the Flex SDK?

Is there anyway to get use this component with Flex, or is there equivalent Flex component I can replace it with?

No, the fl.* library is only included in Flash CS3. To use those components, you need to do one of two things:

1) Export the components from the Flash CS3 library in a SWC and add that to your ActionScript Project in Flex Builder.

2) Add the source files for the fl.* components to your classpath in your ActionScript project. You will need to use setStyle() to add skins or there will be runtime errors.

I got the same error when creating the UIScrollBar in Flash CS3 with AS3 settings.

The following results in the above error:

import fl.controls.UIScrollBar;
import fl.controls.ScrollBarDirection;

I was trying to compile the example is the AS3 docs.
