Got a small problem with a scrollbar that I've added to a text box that is in a movie clip. When I check it in a browser, the text at the bottom does not show if I use the up & down arrows or dragging the scrollbar with my mouse but the text will appear if I use the mouse scroll wheel!!
If I change the text to multiline no wrap, it shows up as expected i.e. using the up & down arrows. Just can't figure it out.
I'm running Flash 8 Pro.
Would be grateful for any advice, thanks.
I was able to successfully add a scrollbar to my text field and I was able to scroll through the text content using the arrow keys as well as the Up and down arrows.
I think you are facing a problem because you are trying to use the scroll functionality on a single line text field. Scroll bars must be used only on multiline textfields.
