View Full Version : background images for scrollable content 2?

"An interesting way to decorate the script is with a background image."

I am completely lost as to where to put the background image code and of course... how exactly to put the code in.

I messed with table and body codes and put them where I thought they may belong to no avail.

If anyone could help me out on this it would be GREATLY appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

In JavaScript, you put scrolling text inside of a display object (a text box) that is usually inside a form. The best way would be to create a style sheet class and then apply it to the text box. For example, in the head section of your HTML, put:

<style type="text/css">
.backimg {background-image: url(images\texture.gif);}

Then, inside the form element in the body, your display object might look something like:
<INPUT type="text" name="message" class="backimg" size="30">

I hope that helps you!
