In coincidence with the launch of my new Aspen template, I’ve decided to release for free the source code for the scrollbar I’ve been using in my other Flash templates. The scrollbar is coded in AS3 and will automatically resize according to the amount of content, unlike a lot of other Flash scrollbars. You can set the track color, grabber color, grabber press color, grip color, track thickness, grabber thickness, ease amount and whether or not the grabber is “shiny”.
Update [6-21-2009]: Now supports mouse wheel scrolling on the Mac using SWFWheel.
Here is a demo of the scrollbar in use. You can click “Add Copy” to see how it resizes:
You can also view a demo of it being used fullscreen in my Sycamore template.
Here is the usage for the scrollbar class:
_scrollBar = new FullScreenScrollBar(_content, 0×222222, 0xff4400, 0x05b59a, 0xffffff, 15, 15, 4, true);
Feel free to use this code in any way you want other than selling it.
