    How do you do this ?

    http://www.bidet.cl/

    The news blog on the left, how did they make their scroller scroll that fast, and how would you go about creating a custom scroll bar that is fast scrolling like that. I found out that hes using this LoadVars code on the maintimeline and loading that news.txt into that "text_box" MC which holds the dynamic textfield & 2 up & down buttons:

    loadVariables("news.txt","_root.text_box");

    And here's the AS for the buttons below

    "Uparrow" button:

    on (press, keyPress "<Up>")
    {
    up = "1";
    }
    on (release, releaseOutside, rollOut)
    {
    up = "0";
    }

    --------------------------------------

    "Down" button:

    on (press, keyPress "<Down>")
    {
    down = "1";
    }
    on (release, releaseOutside, rollOut)
    {
    down = "0";
    }

    And also the dynamic textfield has a var inside it named "textField", oddly I recreated what he did and it didnt work

    If anyone knows of a good .fla or tutorial of this, please let me know, thnx for the help !

    I also found out that the MC thats being used as a placeholder for everything is named "text_box", it holds the buttons & dynamic textfield has this coding on it:

    onClipEvent (enterFrame)
    {
    if (down == "1")
    {
    this.textField.scroll = this.textField.scroll + 1;
    } // end if
    }
    onClipEvent (enterFrame)
    {
    if (up == "1")
    {
    this.textField.scroll = this.textField.scroll - 1;
    } // end if
    }

    I haven't been able to get it work on the loadvariables part, but I've manage to get the scrolling part right.
