[tweetmeme source=”@hiraash” only_single=false]Scrolling is a feature that has been around us since the time of window based operating systems. Eventually when the scroll enabled mice and touch-pads were available, the scrolling experience became better. Today with mac’s magic mouse and touch pads, scrolling around and navigating in a window has become a unbelievably seamless experience. Sadly still today’s browsers and Flash Player are not fully capable of providing these capabilities to the application developers.
So I took this solution and put it together with flex to enable scrolling for your flash based applications. All I have done is captured the js events and forced a scroll on any scrollable control within the application. Attached is the actionscript class that does this. By simply attaching this class to your project you can get Mac mouse/touchpad based scrolling working on you flash application. The test application is also within the source zip. Tested on Mac Firefox 3.6/Safari 5/Chrome 5.
