Hi m8

I have been playing around with flash alot and i myself wanted to make a flash site.
If you need help anytime just ask.
it depends on what version of flash you are using

Flash Mx
if you have flash mx then there will be a components box on the right.
select scrollbar component and drag it to the stage.
now you need to give it an instance name, click on the component and click properites to bring it up from the bottom. Now where it says instance name (far left of properties box) change it to "scroller" btw, (no ")

now for the text box you want to scroll...
click on the text box and where it says "static" in the properties box, change it to dynamic, and where it says "single line" change it to "multiline" (not "multiline no wrap")

now give the text box the same instance name as the scroll bar component. with some luck the scroll bar should snap to dynamic text and it will resize to the size of the text.

warning, if you plan to use more that 1 scrolller then change the scroll bar and text field instance name. make it something like "scroller1" otherwise one scroll bar will move all the text boxes

hope it helps ;)

Flash Mx 2004

I myself had a few problems with it, but to simply selected the scroll bar component from flash Mx and then open it in 2004 did the trick (although it wouldn't snap to the dynamic text box) you can change the size of the scroller (if you need to know, ask)

hope that helps ya, btw. always ask ;)
