Flash is a vector graphic based application. It is used worldwide to produce movies, animation, presentations and more. You can use it to create presentations for your company, equipped with an up to date database to show the right information at the right time to creating a button for your web site. An example would be a Stock Ticker.
There are many websites in the Internet built using Macromedia Flash technology. You probably saw different types of scrolling on those websites. I would like to show you one of the easiest ways to create a scroll bar with the mask. It may be used not only for text scrolling but you may also put images into that scrolling.
