View Full Version : marquee speed control

05-17-2006, 12:49 AM
i have a marquee script that makes a button, to make marquee text speedup

here is that script
<a href="javascript:scroller.scrollAmount=scroller.scrollAmount+1;">fast</a>

i tried this one to make it slow down but didnt work

<a href="javascript:scroller.scrollAmount=scroller.scrollAmount/1;">slow</a>

i tried other ways but couldnt get it to work
can anyone help :confused:

<a href="javascript:scroller.scrollAmount=scroller.scrollAmount/1;">slow</a>

That's dividing it by one. Any number divided by one equals itself. Try:

<a href="javascript:scroller.scrollAmount=(scroller.scrollAmount-1);">slow</a> Or even:

<a href="javascript:scroller.scrollAmount=parseInt(scroller.scrollAmount)-1;">slow</a>

If neither of these work, I'd need to see the full script in action to determine the problem(s).

Please post a link to the page on your site that contains the problematic script so we can check it out.

thanks for your reply but found way that works better for what i want
here is script just incase your interested

<table width="60%" height="200" border="2" align="center" cellpadding="2" cellspacing="2">
<td height="300" align="right"><div align="left">
<marquee behavior=scroll id="scroller" width=100% scrollamount=5>
i used images here not text

<div align="center">
<h2><font size="+2">| <a href="javascript:scroller.direction='left'">Forward</a>
| <a href="javascript:scroller.start()">Start</a> | <a href="javascript:scroller.stop()">Stop</a>
| <a href="javascript:scroller.direction='right'">Backward</a> | </font></h2>
<h2><font size="+2">| <a href="javascript:scroller.scrollAmount=scroller.scrollAmount*3-scroller.scrollAmount;">Faster</a>
| <a href="javascript:scroller.scrollAmount=scroller.scrollAmount*10/7-scroller.scrollAmount;">Slower</a>
| </font></h2>

any other way i did the faster and slower button made the images go in reverse after slowing down enough.
this way it doesnt go past scrollamount of 0 in both direction
