Adobe Developer spotlight: Todd Williams

I know there are some really nice scroll components similar to this on the web, information pills here but I think this still has merit. It seems like every job comes with a different scroll bar design, the buttons and scroll bar can be any shape, size or configuration. While most Flash scroll bar components are easily skinned, this is kind of the opposite of skinning. You create the artwork, convert each item to a MovieClip, then apply the class. The code wraps the artwork instead of the artwork skinning the code. This class started around 3 years ago and has been modified for many different projects and continued to evolve into what we have today. It is not perfect, but it can handle most jobs needing custom scroll bars. Technorati Tags: Adobe, AIR, developer, devnet, Flash, Flex, todd williams Read the full article…
