View Full Version : Pausing up-down message scroller

11-14-2004, 09:43 PM
First time java applet user, but I can sort of read code. I was refered to you by the MS FrontPage forum.

I have used the pausing up-down message scroller on my customer's site. I like it, and found it easy to modify the font and box size, and insert 11 lines of messages.

However, he wants the pause removed and the speed slowed way down. Can you please tell me how to do these 2 things?

Not so important - the "lightyellow" background looks pale pink. I tried "lightgreen" and "lightblue" but they were both too strong. Is there something I can specify that would be really pale yellow, green, or blue?

Thank you.

Best thing is to use IFRAME scroller instead. Scrolls slowly continuously and pauses when mouseover.

Thanks! I was clueless about what IFRAME meant, so stayed away from it. I have looked at it and I can read what I need to.

For the color change:

var scrollerbgcolor='lightyellow'

to something like

var scrollerbgcolor='#FFF1FF'

That's the HEX code for a really really pale pink

Since it is a pausing scroller, it's gonna be a pain to remove the pause in it. Mess around with this line in the variable section

var scrollerdelay='3000' //delay between msg scrolls. 3000=3 seconds.

Try changing it to 0000 and see what happens
