How to specify scrollbar thumb position in Flex

Is there a way I can make a scrollbar thumb jump to a certain location so as to display the appropriate records applicable within its range? For example, if a datagrid that displays 10 records at a time had 500 records, scrolling the scroll bar thumb exactly at the center should roughly display the 245th to 255th records.

In order to do this, I'm guessing I would need to be able to get the beginning and end range of a scrollbar thumb. I'm sure one side has to be 0, but how do I get the END range value of a scrollbar thumb?

And secondly, how can I manually position the scrollbar thumb within the scrollbar?

Does anyone have any experience doing this? Thanks.

Hey.

simply use:

dataGrid.validateNow();
dataGrid.verticalScrollPosition = 50;

this will put element 50 as top visible element.

To find out about the number you wish to scroll to is simple math ;)

btw: there is a property dataGrid.maxVerticalScrollPosition that has the value of the last item to scroll to (normally means itemCount - gridSize).

good luck!
