ScrollPane DOES Support Styles

Docs say it doesn’t, but it does. Here’s my fav; a borderless one!!!

– drag a ScrollPane on stage
– select it and delete it (so it’s in your library)
– draw something big
– select it
– make it a movie clip
– delete it from the stage
– give it a linkage name of “test”
– make a new layer
– put this code on it

attachMovie("ScrollPane", "mc", 0);
mc.setSize(100, 100);
mc.contentPath = "test";

function onKeyDown()
                case Key.LEFT:
                mc.setStyle("borderStyle", "none");
                case Key.UP:
                mc.setStyle("borderStyle", "inset");
                case Key.RIGHT:
                mc.setStyle("borderStyle", "outset");
                case Key.DOWN:
                mc.setStyle("borderStyle", "solid");


– test movie
– pressing “left” arrow key is my favorite; borderless

Funny thing, if you scroll your content to the middle, and then keep pressing down and left, down and left, etc., the content will move slightly. A bug, but no one would really care.
