You can use 'scrollTop' to detect if the text has been scrolled. A scrolltop of 0 means it has not been scrolled.
Try the following behavior attached to the scrolling text sprite.
on beginSprite me
(sprite(me.spriteNum).member).scrollTop = 0
pScrollStart = 0
on exitFrame me
if pScrollStart = 0 then
if (sprite(me.spriteNum).member).scrollTop then pScrollStart = 1
on mouseup me
I have 'pScrollStart' as a property variable that changes to 1 as soon as the text member is scrolled down.I added the mouseUp part so you could click the sprite and see the variable value in the Message Window.
Thanx for your answer. i created a movie to test your script, and works great.
Now I have to "patch" it in into my real need.
