How would one go about scrolling text in a dynamic text box, not like having a scroll bar on it and having the user scroll it, just having the text autoscroll like a stock ticker or marquee.

this is a little more tricky if you're actually dynamically loading the text, but... if you know the size, just set it up as a movieclip, give it a point a, a point b and tween it between them (so it moves upward)
then make a mask layer above the layer the text mc is on with a box the size of what you want to be seen... right click on that layer and select "mask"
