AS3: SWFScroll, Yet Another Scrollbar Library

SWFScroll can also be used to mimic browser scrollbars in flash.

I wanted to create scrollbars that behave like real scrollbars with features like:

  • Automatic resizing for fullscreen flash.
  • A grace movement of +-60 pixels.
  • A scrubber that is draggable and accurately reflects the canvas size
    even on resizing of the window
  • Color states to match a real scrollbar (colors can be modified in scrollBarSettingsHelper)
  • MouseWheel Capability even on Macs (uses Gabriel Bucknall's swfmacmousewheel)
  • Page Up / Page Down keys enabled
  • All arrow keys enabled (once you click on your scrollable area first).

View example in a new window, to see how the browser scrollbars operate in a seperate window. Or view the inline example below

The Size of SWFScroll is less than 10K.
