    Horizontal Scrolling text

    BillyB13
      Has anyone created any flex classes that scroll the text horizontally automatically(think news ticker)? I have looked through the help & forum for examples of how to accomplish this and have drawn a blank.

      I did look at using the textfield (addchild), but i can't seem to get it to work. Probably because of this note regarding using addchild:

      Note: If you test ActionScript examples that use the addChild() ActionScript method with Flash Player display objects (like a text field) within an MXML application, you will need to attach the code to a Flex UIComponent instead of adding the Flash Player display object.

      How do you attach the code to a flex UIComponet? Example?

      thanks
