Ummm... ok, I'm confused:

"does anyone know how to make those auto scrollers, mouse over and they scroll up/down"

Well yeah, just like the non-auto scrollers but you trigger them with different events.

But, I'm really confused about:

"is ther a way of getting them to be something like the mac os 8 scrollers?"

Because, isn't wanting them to scroll when you mouse over them automatically making them less like the OS8 scrollers, or did you mean having the position of the scroll up/down thingies right next to each other at the bottom of the scroll bar?

I want to position them both at the bottom. See I got a layer with a lot of text in it and I want that layer to have auto scrolling abilities (what I said before, mouse over stuff) and I want them to be positioned like the MacOS 8 scroller... ok?

Well, it sounds like you know what you want. That's good.

But what you ask is a very very complicated question. It's almost comparable to: How do I make my own computer game?

If you want a decent answer you'll need to ask a specific question. Asking how to make x won't really get you anywhere. On the other hand, if you have no intention of actually writing a script to do this yourself, then www.google.com is always a good place to look for pre-written javascript. Oh and www.znippets.com has a DHTML scroller that might do what you want.

You might also want to have a look in the Asylum FAQ, there's a bunch of stuff in there about this kind of thing.

There's definitely an entry in the FAQ about this.

I know what you want but you still haven't clarified your question.

You said what you were looking for but you didn't say if you were looking for a pre-written script or help in writing your own script. Did I not make that clear in my last post?...

If you're writing your own script then we can probably help. However, if you don't really know much about javascript and you're looking for a pre-written script that does what you want then you might be out of luck. In the latter case my best advice would be to scour google for something but the biggest problem with using scripts that other people write is that you won't always get exactly what you want.

If you wanna make a scroller that only works in the latest versions of IE you could learn about IFRAMES and the javascript function, window.iframeName.scrollBy(xValue,Yvalue);
It would be an easy task, but then again I dunno if you know a lot about javascript.

Well, well...

Damn, I was complete ass in this thread wasn't I?

Sorry darknosis, I should be more mindfull of how stressed I get during the last few weeks of semester, which usually turns me into a bit of a arrogant prick.

Anyways, I've uploaded some old scrollers I was playing aruond with about 6 months back. I haven't touched these (or anything Javascript related for that matter) in quite a while and I don't think their fully cross-browser yet but maybe you can work something with them:

http://www.whatever.net.au/~cameron/files/scripts/1.0/scroller.html
http://www.whatever.net.au/~cameron/files/scripts/2.1/scroller.html
http://www.whatever.net.au/~cameron/files/scripts/2.2/scroller.html

If you do use anything, then all I ask for is a credit in the source.
