    Scroll down when new text is added + notifyUser()

    woudir

      Using: Adobe Director 11

       

      I created a chat application, but when I write a message it puts the message at the end of the field. But when the scrollbar appeares you have to scroll yourself to see the new message. I want this to be automated. (For example: WLM/MSN)

       

      Now, I found this article wich was very nice, but it did not work...

      Why did it not work? Because I'am using a flash-component Text Area. I have my reasons to work with a flash-component.
      Can anyone help me out please? I just want it to scroll down when a new message is added.

       

      Code to add new text to the chat:
      sprite(9).text = sprite(9).text & "<i>" & chatname & " says:</i>"
      sprite(9).text = sprite(9).text & "- " & message

       

      Sprite 9 = chatwindow

       

      It's just like:

       

      Me says:
      - Message 1

       

      ---

       

      Can anyone also help with the script to notify the user of a new message (like msn):

       

      window("miaw").notifyUser(-1, 10000)
      or
      _player.notifyUser(-1, 10000)

       

      Does not work...
      What is the name of the window when I just open a projector? The projector itself is not opening other windows...

       

      Thanks
