I'm makeing a chat room (chat room (http://www.churchforchildren.com/CGI_pro_SA/Chat/index2.htm?name=Guest&mail=none&B1=Enter) ), and i need some ideas for the scrolling, becosue i'v got complaints of the fist atempt being to slow, so i replaced it with a fast one, now they say thay can't view what has been posted before, any ideas?

i'm working on the final one and it will add the postings to the top, so there will be no scrolling needed, but that will be a few months, and i need this ASAP :)

thanks for any ideas you can come up with :)


first script: too slow


<SCRIPT>
Scrolling = 11;
function ScrollWin() {
while(Scrolling != 7000) {
this.scroll(1,Scrolling)
Scrolling++;
}
}
</SCRIPT>


second: too crazy


<SCRIPT>
var speed=99999
var currentpos=0,alt=1,curpos1=-1,curpos2=-1
function initialize(){
startit()
}
function scrollwindow(){
if (document.all)
temp=document.body.scrollTop
else
temp=window.pageYOffset
if (alt==0)
alt=1
else
alt=1
if (alt==0)
curpos1=temp
else
curpos2=temp
if (curpos1!=curpos2){
if (document.all)
currentpos=document.body.scrollTop+speed
else
currentpos=window.pageYOffset+speed
window.scroll(0,currentpos)
}else{
currentpos=0
window.scroll(0,currentpos)
}
}
function startit(){
setInterval("scrollwindow()",10)
}
window.onload=initialize
</SCRIPT>
