I want to create a HorizontalList that will show some
thumbnails, but I want to remove the scrollbar (I figure that out
already!!!!), but I want my thumbnails to move as I hover the mouse
over them. That is, I want them to move either left or right,
depending if we are moving the mouse left or right. I see this
effect quite a lot on the net, but could not find a Flex example
I asked around for some ideas and didn't come up with too
much. You might want to try hiding the scrollbar and then using an
AnimateProperty effect to change the horizontalScrollPosition
depending on where the user is mousing over an item. I'm not sure
that you can change horizontalScrollPosition if
horizontalScrollPolicy="off" though. So, you might need to do
something like setting the scrollbar to be invisible instead.
Still, since the List components don't have smooth scrolling, you
might not get the nice effect you want. You can also try using an
HBox instead of a HorizontalList, I know that using an
AnimateProperty with horizontalScrollPosition works smoothly here.
Sorry, I wish I could be more help. This does seem like
something that someone else would have implemented already before.
You might want to ask on flexcoders if you haven't already. There
is probably a bigger audience here.
