Hi,

1) Script Title:
Cross Browser marquee II

2) Script URL (on DD):
http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex2/cmarquee2.htm

3) Describe problem:

Hi again,
Please help this beginner (me) if you can.

I'm using Cross Browser Marquee II (Author: Dynamic Drive), but I can't get it to work.

I'm having trouble linking to the RSS I want, which is:

http://abc.net.au/news/syndicate/breakingrss.xml

In particular I dont know what code to use in the following part of the instructions for Cross Browser Marquee II ("Your scroller contents"):

<div id="marqueecontainer" onMouseover="copyspeed=pausespeed" onMouseout="copyspeed=marqueespeed">
<div id="vmarquee" style="position: absolute; width: 98%;">

<!--YOUR SCROLL CONTENT HERE-->

<h4>Your scroller contents</h4>

<!--YOUR SCROLL CONTENT HERE-->

</div>
</div>

Thanks, PeterD

There's no easy way to do this with this script, since you're dealing with a RSS file that needs to be parsed first. Check out gAjax Pausing scroller (http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex18/gajaxpausescroller.htm), which is probably the closest script on DD to what you're looking for.

Hi,

Please help if you can, thank you.

My uni uses Cross Browser marquee II (see "View code" in browser menu) to scroll a news service from (Australian) ABC News.

See:

But I'm stuck for what code would be required, at the point previously indicated, i.e.

<div id="marqueecontainer" onMouseover="copyspeed=pausespeed" onMouseout="copyspeed=marqueespeed">
<div id="vmarquee" style="position: absolute; width: 98%;">

<!--YOUR SCROLL CONTENT HERE-->

<h4>Your scroller contents</h4>

<!--YOUR SCROLL CONTENT HERE-->

</div>
</div>

I'll also email my uni for advice.

Thanks & best wishes, PeterD
