So, You Want An Explorer Scrolling Marquee, Huh?
To start enjoying the scrolling fun, head to the Microsoft Explorer Download Page and grab yourself Internet Explorer. I have it on the same computer as my Netscape. I use it for some pages and Netscape for others. They have yet to interfere with each other.
The MarqueeMarquee? It looks like a scroll. Well... yes, it is a scroll, but the command to make it happen is "marquee". Here are the commands I used to make the thing up above:
Here's What's Happening:
- MARQUEE tells Explorer a scrolling marquee is going here.
- BGCOLOR tells the marquee what color to put behind
(Here are a bunch of color codes for you.)
- LOOP="infinite" tells the marquee to roll that text
(Put a number in place of "infinite" to tell it how many times it should roll.)
- /MARQUEE ends the whole deal.
Can I Do Other Things?You bet. I only used a few of the available commands. Here are a couple more. You'll place them inside the first MARQUEE command just like the BGCOLOR and LOOP command above.
- HEIGHT="----" denotes height of the marquee. Do it in percentage of the screen height.
- WIDTH="----" denotes width of the marquee. Do it in percentage of the screen width.
- ALIGN="----" top, left, or middle in the marquee banner.
- DIRECTION="----" left or right. That's where the text comes from. Right is default.
- BEHAVIOR="----" "scroll" is default, "slide" has the text come in and stop, "alternate" makes the text come from both sides every other time.
- HSPACE="----" tells the marquee how much space to leave on each side of the text. Denote this in pixels.
- SCROLLAMOUNT="----" tells the browser how much space between successive scrolls. Do this in pixels.
- SCROLLDELAY="----" denotes the number of milliseconds (thousands) between each scroll.
- VSPACE="----" denotes the top and bottom space before the text. Do this in pixels.
