View Full Version : Need help with Dynamic text with scrollbar (Adv Tutorial 11)

03-07-2001, 03:15 AM
I'm adding the scrollbar from the 11th advanced tutorial (http://www.actionscripts.org/tutorials/advanced/Dynamic_text_with_scrollbar/index.shtml) but I'm having problems incorporating it. I'm modifying the scrollbar to be a movieclip within my main movie and also to read from an ASP file instead of the text file. I've gotten to the point where it'll display the text and scrollbar but haven't been able to get the scrollbar working. I don't think I understand how _root and _level work. If anyone knows of a good tutorial explaining the whole _root, _level, and variables in nested movieclips can be accessed, please let me know.

Here are the general changes I made Original -> New:
textbox.foo.bar -> NewsMovie.textbox.foo.bar
_root.foo -> _root.NewsMovie.textbox.foo
_root.textbox.foo -> _root.NewsMovie.textbox.foo

This has seen limited success...
You can see what it looks like now at the following URL:

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
