    Trouble making scrolling text in CS5

    I have a simple text field that is read only and it's very long, so I just want to use a scrollbar on the right-hand side. I dragged a UIScrollbar component to this text area, I lined it up, same height, and even named the text area as the scrollbar's target, but when I compile the swf, I get a blank scrollbar next to the text and 2 other scrollbars off the the right of the text!!! I also tried adding the scrollbar via code with the same results. What am I doing wrong?

    I also notice when I drag the UIScrollbar to the text, I cannot ever get it to "snap" to it like I've seen in other tutorials. What kind of text area can I use this with? I've tried TLF and classic text to no avail.

    somehow I got it to work, but the scrollbar is on the inside of the text area and is blocking the text to the right of the text area. Trying to recompile now with it on the outside. I'm using Classic/Dynamic text.
