    attchMoive inside scrollPane?

    Im having trouble trying to get my attached Clips to scroll (vertically)

    My project so far just loads an XML object...loops through the data and populates EACH dynamically attachedClip

    I tried to use a scrollPane component..but I havent been able to get ANY movies to attach inside....


    I also tried using a scrollbar of my OWN.....but it doesnt scroll correctly. I believe the problem to be..that the onLoad of the scrollBar code that gets the initial length of the clip to be scrolled is NOT getting the correct length because the attachedClips are NOT populating in the clip before this variable is set. (needs to be a set length at authoring time to work correctly)


    here is the code I have... everything works PERFECTLY, everything is populating with the correct data..all clips (total) are being attached correctly form the XML file. I just nned to have all this happen INSIDE a clip that I cna scroll.. open to ideas & suggestions?

    thanks

    code:

    import mx.utils.Delegate;
    //
    //
    //
    var mc:MovieClip = this;
    var rootNode:XMLNode;
    var productsNode:Array;
    var totalProducts:Number;
    var myXML_xml = new XML();
    //
    myXML_xml.ignoreWhite = true;
    myXML_xml.onLoad = Delegate.create(this, getTotalProducts);
    myXML_xml.load("products.xml");
    //
    //
    //
    function getTotalProducts(success):Void {
    if (success == true) {
    rootNode = myXML_xml.firstChild;
    productsNode = rootNode.childNodes;
    totalProducts = rootNode.childNodes.length;
    createTemplates();
    this.onEnterFrame = Delegate.create(this, function() {
    populateAll();
    delete this.onEnterFrame;
    }
    ); //end Delegate
    } else {
    trace("Load Failed");
    }
    }
    function createTemplates():Void
    {
    for (i = 0; i < totalProducts; i++) {
    var attachProduct:MovieClip = attachMovie("templateClip", "product" + i, i);
    attachProduct._x += i * 220;
    attachProduct._y += 40;
    }
    }
    function populateAll():Void {
    for (i = 0; i < totalProducts; i++) {
    var totalSizes:String =productsNode[i].childNodes[3].childNodes.length;
    var totalColors:String =productsNode[i].childNodes[4].childNodes.length;
    trace("product"+i+" totalSizes: "+totalSizes);
    trace("product"+i+" totalColors: "+totalColors);
    //name
    var prodName:String = productsNode[i].childNodes[1].firstChild.nodeValue;
    var obj = this["product" + i];
    obj.name_txt.text = prodName;
    trace("Name: "+prodName);
    //image
    var prodImage:String = productsNode[i].childNodes[0].firstChild.nodeValue;
    var prodLink:String = productsNode[i].childNodes[6].firstChild.nodeValue;
    var obj = this["product" + i];
    obj.prodImage_container.innerContainer_mc.loadMovi e("clothing/"+prodImage);
    obj.linkVar = prodLink;
    trace("Image: "+prodImage);
    trace("URL: "+prodLink);
    //price
    var prodPrice:String = productsNode[i].childNodes[2].firstChild.nodeValue;
    var obj = this["product" + i];
    obj.price_txt.text = prodPrice;
    trace("Price: "+prodPrice);
    //description
    var prodDesc:String = productsNode[i].childNodes[5].firstChild.nodeValue;
    var obj = this["product" + i];
    obj.desc_txt.text = prodDesc;
    trace("Description: "+prodDesc+newline);
    //sizes
    for (x = 0; x < totalSizes; x++) {
    var size:String = productsNode[i].childNodes[3].childNodes[x].firstChild.nodeValue;
    var obj = this["product" + i];
    obj.sizeCombo.addItem(size);
    }
    //color
    for (y = 0; y < totalColors; y++) {
    var color:String = productsNode[i].childNodes[4].childNodes[y].firstChild.nodeValue;
    var obj = this["product" + i];
    obj.colorCombo.addItem(color);
    }
    }
    }



    NONE of this code can change except maybe some pathing.

    Im NOT against using the scrollPane..but would rather use my own....

    here is one I made..with a custom scrollBar..however the attachedClips DO NOT populate in time for the scrollbar to work correctly..

    (you can test this by deleting the text & yellowBG inside the objectClip)..it wont scroll the correct way...if there IS something in there at authoring time..it will use that as the length to scroll by.
