Pausing up-down message scroller
http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex2/crosstick.htm

This scroller works great!!
I searched for this Q but did'nt find my A, so I'm hoping for some help:

I'd like to run the same script 2 times on the same page, I know I have to change something but don't know what, any hints?


<!--start scrolling script-->
<script language="JavaScript1.2">

//configure the below five variables to change the style of the scroller
var scrollerwidth=200
var scrollerheight=20
var scrollerbgcolor=''
//set below to '' if you don't wish to use a background image
var scrollerbackground=''

//configure the below variable to change the contents of the scroller
var messages=new Array()
messages[0]="[ Web Development ]"
messages[1]="[ Interests ]"
messages[2]="[ Portal ]"
messages[3]="[ Solutions ]"
messages[4]="[ Hobbies ]"

///////Do not edit pass this line///////////////////////

if (messages.length>1)
i=2
else
i=0

function move1(whichlayer){
tlayer=eval(whichlayer)
if (tlayer.top>0&&tlayer.top<=5){
tlayer.top=0
setTimeout("move1(tlayer)",3000)
setTimeout("move2(document.main.document.second)",3000)
return
}
if (tlayer.top>=tlayer.document.height*-1){
tlayer.top-=5
setTimeout("move1(tlayer)",100)
}
else{
tlayer.top=scrollerheight
tlayer.document.write(messages[i])
tlayer.document.close()
if (i==messages.length-1)
i=0
else
i++
}
}

function move2(whichlayer){
tlayer2=eval(whichlayer)

There's no easy way to embed multiple copies of this script on the same page unfortunately. I do plan on rewriting this script sometime in the future so support this.
