how can i jump to the location of a particular button inside a scroll pane

Medium Priority
Last Modified: 2010-04-03

i have a navigation bar and scroll pane on the stage.  Within the scroll pane i have a movie clip which doesn't really do anything but contains a bit of text and some buttons... the scroll pane only has a vertical scroll and not a horizontal so it's basically a list of information with the associated clickable logo (button) to the left of it.  I would like to have each submenubutton on the navigation bar show the relevant part of this information when pressed.  E.g. if options are A, B, C on menu and scroll pane automatically shows A (given that you must scroll down to see B and C as they are offscreen) I would like for the user to click on B and the B is shown in the scroll pane.  I think these are called anchors in html (not sure though) but I can't find any example in my flash textbook to help me do this.  The navigation bar is fully funtioning and set up and I plan to use the onpress and onrelease to jump to this page and show the user the appropriate selection... i've named the logos (buttons within the scroll pane) as i think this might help but don't know where to go from here! can this be done?

Thanks v. much.

Sounds like you want to use scrollpane.vposition("n")... where n is the positon for A, B, or C...

I'll post an example in a few minutes.
