Scroll Bars using jQuery Plugin

May 9, 2012 9:40 PM

DISCLAIMER: I am code illiterate. Web design is not my strong suite and I was taught differently than a standard Web Design major...because I'm not a Web Design major. Code confuses the heck out of me. If anyone is able to help, please forgive me, but I need idiot proof instructions.

 

Anyway, I am designing a Flash website and I need scroll buttons to show on the browser window, when the website doesn't fit within that browser window. I found this website...

 

http://think2loud.com/268-add-scroll-bars-to-full-browser-flash-with-a -simple-jquery-plugin/#comments

 

and he provides the code:

 

http://www.think2loud.com/examples/flashresize/jquery.flashResize.js

 

...This is exactly what I'm looking for, but I don't know how to incorporate it into my Flash document. The comments make it sound like his article is elementary, but it's all foreign to me. He says I need to first set up a jQuery, but I don't know how to do this and I don't know how to get in touch with this guy to ask for help, so I'm hoping someone here is familiar with this concept and can help.

 

I also found this website, but again...foreign:  http://www.thetechlabs.com/tech-tutorials/flash/swfobject-and-best-pra ctice-implementation/

 

Thanks!

    The first link for the tutorial has a gigantic download link to sample files for what the person is talking about. Just try downloading them because they're set up properly and just change the SWF it loads to the name of your SWF.

    It works but is it what you really want? Do you want the browsers scrollbar to be invoked or just the container of your flash? I assumed you wanted browser scrollbars so the user doesn't feel like they're looking at a 'website inside a website'.
