Tutorial: How to create a simple scroller with Creative Flash Scroller

 

In this tutorial we’re going to create a simple scroller where you’ll be able to scroll horizontally and vertically through images and text. I want to start by reminding you that, in order for the tutorial to work, you need two things. First is to have the Creative Flash Scroller component installed using Adobe Extension Manager (if you encounter any problems doing that, please refer to the „How to install an extension” tutorial); the second is to copy the skin themes from the product package in the Library of your file, as highlighted in the warning message. You can find them in the Commands top menu - Creative Scrollbar Skins.

1. Let’s start by opening Flash and creating a new file. (For CS3 users: in order to set-up the frame rate and name your file, right-click the stage and select “Document properties”)

2. The next step is to import to stage the file “CFLS-BOX.png” (you can find it in the attached package).

3. Select the Text tool and insert some text on the stage. You can find as well the text to insert in the attached package under the name “text.txt” (Copy+Paste it in your text box). Make the text field 450 pixels wide. In the next image you can see how the ensemble of elements should look like.

4. Select both the image and the static text and convert them into a movieclip and name it “Layout” (you can do that by pressing F8 while both of them are selected).

5. Open the Components and the Component Inspector panels.

6. In the component interface, leave its properties default for now except for choosing “Theme 1” as a skin. Save your file and preview it by pressing CTRL+Enter; it should look like this:
