This show shows how to animate scrolling in a TextArea component dynamically. We handle this automatically when you click in the track or on the buttons of a TextArea's scrollbar, but if you want to tell the component to scroll to a certain location in the viewport, and animate to that position, you have to do this yoursefl. We did something similar in last week's show, in which we animated a Scroller area, but in the case of TextArea we have to dive into ActionScript code to create and play the animations because of some constraints around which properties we can bind to from MXML.
