Lesson 9. Setting Text Dynamically > Adding the Scrollbar Component

Adding the Scrollbar Component

In this task, you will add the scrollbar to the dynamic text field, so users can read all of the text in the block. In previous versions of Flash, creating scrollable text objects required a lot of work; you had to draw all of the interface elements and write a bit of ActionScript as well. In Flash MX, thanks to its new components, you don't have to worry about that.

Components are ready-made interface elements, including form elements like radio groups and text fields. One of the new components is the scrollbar component, which is a pre-built interface that requires no programming to do its job.
