Lesson 12. Nonlinear Flash Interactions > Using a Component to Create a Scrolli...

Using a Component to Create a Scrolling Text Area

The first of the two major features of the upper half of the Inferno is complete: the quicktips. Now you'll implement the second major feature, which is a scrolling text area that describes each of the five circles as well as the upper half of the Inferno itself. You'll create the scrolling text area using the TextArea component.

Flash components are ready-made, customizable features that you can drag and drop into your movies. Flash comes with a number of components, including classic form elements, such as the CheckBox and RadioButton components, and other useful components, such as the ProgressBar component, which creates progress bars that display the load progress of movies. In this task, you'll work with the TextArea component, which as its name implies, creates a multiline scrolling text area, whose contents you can dynamically populate via ActionScript.
