AutoScroll, FrameSwapnRoll and SwapFrameSet can be used as individual Behaviors

AutoScroll is used to scroll the FilmStrip menu, but can handle much more than just a simple scrolling area. It has all the scrolling features you'll probably ever need to create scrolling areas... all in one Action.

Jumpiness in the demos is caused by QuickTime screen capture.

FrameSwapnRoll is used to locate the proper thumbnail in the FilmStrip, center it and keep it highlighted. It can also swap or rollover images across frames.

SwapFrameSet is used to change the contents of one or more frames in a frameset layout.

The AutoScroll, FrameSwapnRoll and SwapFrameSet Behaviors are included in this new FilmStrip menu set.

When a thumbnail in the scrolling strip is clicked, a product page is loaded into the browser's window or frame, and the thumbnail is centered and highlighted.

Product pages are linked to the same FilmStrip menu. When you add or remove pages, only one menu needs to be edited. A tremendous time saver.
