Omg, thank you so much!!! I've been looking and LOOKING on how to get rid of the border on the ScrollPane and none of them worked.

However, your ActionScript worked and so I'm really happy, thank you so very much -- you just saved me so much time, now I can finish my assignment!

Once again,

Thanks so much for this actionscript. I was trying so many options to get rid of the border around ScrollPane, and finally your script worked for me.

Keep up the good work.

There seems to be lack of scrollpane customisation documentation for AS3, but you can edit the scrollpane component by directly changing the theme. You need to right click on the scrollpane on the stage and select 'Edit'. Then search for the scrollpane border and change the alpha to 0%.
