Do you mean inside an other flash movie, or inside e.g an IFrame of an HTML page?
Both is possible, but maybe you can be a little more specific.
sorry, within the same flash movie - so I will load "menu.swf" with co-ordinates x:20 y:20 into a 300x300px area.
"menu.swf" is 2000x300px.
Do you want to work with components, or do you want to build the scrollbar(-area) on your own?
i want to create my own - as simple as possible...
I'd say in your case (as described) it should not be too hard.
I understand that your scrolable clip is of a fixed size. Evene if not for a start that would be a good asumption.
Here' what I would do:
Place an empty clip on stage (createEmptyMovieClip...),
Mask it with a clip of 300 by 300
load the desired clip (method depending on flash version you're targeting)
and make a scollbar clip that positions the loaded clip (by the name of the earlier created empty clip) acording to the position of the slider.
Tricky part would be determing when the clip has finished loading if you target players before 7. Also it might be (I'm not sure right now, would have to check it out) that you have to re-mask the clip once the external one has finished loading.
I don't kow If that helps you, but it might provide a general idea.
If you need more hints, I'll try to be of help.
