I made a little mistake in my previous post I think you rectified :-)
startValue must be 1

I take advantage to post a more generic code:
just fix the startValue to 1 and the endValue to the range you desire 

on scrollbarDrag pPos
   set the numberFormat of me to "#"
   set the pageInc of me to the endValue of me / (the endValue of me + 1)
end scrollbarDrag

on mouseUp
   set the numberFormat of me to ".#"
   set the thumbPos of me to round(the thumbPos of me)
end mouseUp

Note that (here with Rev 2.5 and Mac OS X) correct display can't be got 
with some end values as 2, 3, 15 and more than 30.
I figure it's a bug :-(
