1 - Create a dynamic text field and give it an instance name. (adding _txt at the end of the instance name is good practice)

2 - Add some text

3 - Shift-Doubleclick on the box in the lower right corner maket the dynamic textbox scrollable.

4 - Make a small movie clip (around the size of a cursor) to follow the mouse around. Give it an instance name of mouseFollower and attach this script

onClipEvent (load) {
this._visible = false;

We're going to look for a positive hitTest between mouseFollower and movie clips that will act as your up and down buttons. So mouseFollower cannot be an empty MC.

5 - Add Movie clips that will act as buttons

6 - Attach this script to the up movie clip

onClipEvent (enterFrame) {
_parent.scrollText_txt.scroll -=1;

7 - Attach this script to the down movieClip

onClipEvent (enterFrame) {
_parent.scrollText_txt.scroll +=1;

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
