Programmatically scroll a scrolling panel?

I have a custom menu which exists inside of a scrolling panel. Each menu item is highlighted automatically as the user progresses through the course, mostly all on one slide.

I'd like the scrolling panel to auto-scroll down once the menu reaches a certain point, so that the highlighted menu item is always on the screen and the user doesn't have to scroll down to see it.

There is a sample here that kind of does this by adding a motion path to a text box, but I noticed that they hide the scroll bar off to the side of the canvas, for good reason, as the size of the bar changes with this technique: http://www.thearticulatetrainer.com/is-there-a-way-to-make-a-scrolling-panel-automatically-scroll/

Are there any other ways to cause a scrolling panel to auto-scroll?

Thanks,

Mike
