on the root of my stage i have a scrollpane with an instance name of "scrollpane" teh code below is also in the root of my movie. My problem is that i cant get the pane to scroll the "container" mc or even show scroll bars, i guess because there is no content in the pane.

i have the following code:

_level0.createEmptyMovieClip("container",100);
// show loading info
this.createTextField("loading",2,0,0,200,20);
loading.text = "loading information... please wait"
loading.selectable = false;
loading.setTextFormat(new TextFormat("Verdana",10,0x000000));
loading._x = -100
loading._y = -50;
showInfo = function (_vars) {
removeMovieClip(loading);
bg = [0x484848,0x343434];
container._x = 11;
container._y = 450;
for (i = 1; i <= _vars.count; i++) {
prime = i%2;
container.attachMovie("display", "events" + i, i);
container["events" + i]._y = (i == 1) ? 50 : (50 * i);
container["events" + i].genre.text = _vars["event_genre" + i];
container["events" + i].event_date.text = _vars["event_date" + i];
container["events" + i].nom.text = _vars["event_name" + i];
container["events" + i].info.text = _vars["event_text"+i];
container["events" + i].barname.text = _vars["event_bar"+i];
container["events" + i].info.autoSize = "center"
container["events" + i].barid = _vars["barid"+i];

// bg
bgColor = new Color(container["events" + i].bg);
bgColor.setRGB(parseInt(bg[prime]));

}
trace(_root.scrollpane.getScrollContent());
_root.scrollpane.setScrollContent("container");
_root.scrollpane.refreshPane();
trace(_root.scrollpane.getScrollContent());
}
