Step Three: The ScrollbarNow we will create the path that the slider moves along. For the path create a new Movie Clip again and call it 'path'. The path can be any length but bear in mind we will use the proportion of the path length to MovieClip length to work out the scrolling factor. The registration point of the path should be exactly at its left edge. Drag a copy of this onto the main stage and name this instance "path".
Add an onClipEvent(load) action to the 'path' MC with two setProperty actions. All we are doing here is lining up the registration point of the path with the registration point of the 'slider'.So for this reason it doesnt matter where on the stage you place the path, Actionscript will align it with the 'slider' MC.
You can also position the path manually using "Snap-to-Grid" and the "Align" tool to align it with the 'sliders' position in
which case you can leave out this code.
