note: the scrollbar is also attachable to a ‘normal’ movieclip instead of the dynamically loaded text!
This looks like a regular scrollbar, but in fact it is not. This one loads it’s html formatted (!) text from a little .txt file located for example in the same folder as the .swf file.
Mousewheel scrolling is also enabled and of course the page slides with a smooth transition.
A very nice little something that you don’t see very often in flash scrollbars: the bar resizes with the page. So when you have a very long page, the scrollbar will be pretty short and when the page is short, the scrollbar will be long (or even invisible if the page fits in the textfield. Just like usual Windows scrollbars.
Q. Does it manage extremely long pages?
A. Yes it does. The textfield can be of unlimited height (which i tried op to 10.000 px, without slowing down the framerate at all)
