I have created a flash movie player in actionscript 2.0 using the list component.  The list contains the movie playlist.   I need to simply make the scrollbar in the list component darker.   Is there a style declaration that would allow me to at least darken the background color of the scroll track?  Perhaps something like this:

videoList.setStyle("scrollTrackColor", "0xCCCCCC");

( I tried this to no avail)  
Thanks in advance for any suggestions

It does not work with the default halo green theme. You have to import the sample theme and then this code will work.

I am assuming you are using Flash CS4. Follow the instructions here

http://help.adobe.com/en_US/AS2LCR/Flash_10.0/help.html?content=00001868.html

For step 2 you go to this folder C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Flash CS4\Common\Configuration\Component Source\ActionScript 2.0\FLA and select the sampletheme.fla.

I have an example of this at this

Yes the sample theme is rather ugly but that's the only thing that can change the scrollTrackColor directly.

Or You can do manual modifying of component sources too, see this page, http://help.adobe.com/en_US/AS2LCR/Flash_10.0/help.html?content=00003078.html.

Thanks for the answer - I modified the component sources manually as shown in the 2nd link you posted - very helpful for all flash components!
