I have built a custom scrollbar, but I need some additional help. Clicking and moving the tan colored dragger works fine. However, I would like for the scrollbar to function like a windows scrollbar, in that if  you click in the empty space (the green part in my custom scrollbar), then the dragger moves to the spot that is clicked. Please take a look at my source file (news.fla) here:

So to recap, I need some help getting the scrollbar to to function when any part other than the dragger is clicked (the green part of my custom scrollbar).

Thanks in advance.

These examples use the scrollbar that comes with flash. I built a custom one. How can I add the functionality to it? Thanks.
