Flash Text Ticker / Scrolling Text in AS3 Revisited

After looking at my google analytics for some time, I noticed I get  a lot of hits from this post:  “Flash Text Ticker / Scrolling Text in Actionscript 3.0“.   Its a basic tutorial on how to create scrolling text in Flash. I wanted to revisit that component and make it better, and integrate it with a XML file so users can easily edit things. I have finally finished working on it and it got approved for sale on activeden. Its called Flash Text Ticker / Scrolling Text Actionscript 3 and here are some of its features, and you click the image below to view the fullscreen preview:
