Randomizing Fading Scroller

Rating: 5 votes, 3.00 average.
The script does not have a randomizing option on the scroller, and due to a recent thread I made. (http://www.dynamicdrive.com/forums/s...70&postcount=2).

Your new code should look like this:
Code:
<script type="text/javascript">

var delay = 2000; //set delay between message change (in miliseconds)
var maxsteps=30; // number of steps to take to change from start color to endcolor
var stepdelay=40; // time in miliseconds of a single step
//**Note: maxsteps*stepdelay will be total time in miliseconds of fading effect
var startcolor= new Array(255,255,255); // start color (red, green, blue)
var endcolor=new Array(0,0,0); // end color (red, green, blue)

var fcontent=new Array();

var fwidth='150px'; //set scroller width
var fheight='150px'; //set scroller height

var fadelinks=1;  //should links inside scroller content also fade like text? 0 for no, 1 for yes.
