    pan website with mouse?

    hey everyone,

    I am wondering how hard it would be to write some script that paned my website horizontally either with a scroll bar at the bottom or by clicking the empty space and dragging?

    if anyone knows of some tuts and could show me I would greatly!!!!! appreciate it.

    thanks, micah

    Is this the kind of thing you were looking for? I think you could apply a simple drag and drop to the background. You would have to put limits on how far you could drag though.

    EX:

    Code:
    // Register mouse event functions
    blue_btn.addEventListener(MouseEvent.MOUSE_DOWN, mouseDownHandler);
    blue_btn.addEventListener(MouseEvent.MOUSE_UP, mouseUpHandler);
     
    red_btn.addEventListener(MouseEvent.MOUSE_DOWN, mouseDownHandler);
    red_btn.addEventListener(MouseEvent.MOUSE_UP, mouseUpHandler);
     
    // Define a mouse down handler (user is dragging)
    function mouseDownHandler(evt:MouseEvent):void {
    	var object = evt.target;
    	// we should limit dragging to the size of the page.
    	object.startDrag();
    }
     
    function mouseUpHandler(evt:MouseEvent):void {
    	var obj = evt.target;
    		obj.stopDrag();
    }


    Maybe to limit the dragging:

    Code:
    //add this to the "function mouseDownHandler()", 
    if (background.x < leftXLimit && background.x < rightXLimit && background.y < topYLimit && background.y < bottomXLimit) {
    }


    or something like that. try it out, hope this helps!

    Oh By the way, here's the URL of that tutorial. I forgot you asked for the "tut".
