Free AutoScroll Component for Flex 2

I promised one completely free and open source Flex component each week in May, and I’m determined to deliver. So after a busy week at my .NET day job, I managed to stay up last night and make the AutoScroll component from scratch. The AutoScroll component will render a horizontal display container that scrolls according to your mouse position. You should provide it with a dataProvider and itemRenderer and it will do the rest. I wanted to extend the ListBase for this component, but I couldn’t overcome the underlying problems in time. I’ll revisit this at some point in the future, but in the mean time feel free to improve it on your own.
