hi guys,

im new to this site and new to javascript. Ive been teaching myself using examples from books etc and recently came accross some script on dynamicdrive and it does 90% of what i need to achieve.
the script in question is [a href=\"http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex2/expandticker.htm\" target=\"_blank\"]here[/a].

Is there any way to achieve a scrolling effect for the ticker so that it displays all news items in the list with the same effect as the ticker on shortnews.com?

As i say, i have only very basic knowledge of javascript so im really stuck as to where to begin to achieve this. so far ive managed to change the text colours and messa bout with the layout a bit and thats it, so any help on this would be sooooo appreciated.

many thanks in advance

regards

Kf

So you want the text to just scroll?
if so, use <marquee></marquee>
regex.kat.sh --- regex library
u.kat.sh ---- url shortener
tabbit.org ---- tabbed pastebin

ok i tried the above suggestion but now everything scrolls! I only want the first item to scroll and anything that is visible after clicking the EXPAND button to stay where it is.

If you see the [a href=\"http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex2/expandticker.htm\" target=\"_blank\"]demo[/a] again, youll notice that the links change, i want those links to be scrolling right to left continoulsy looping and when you click the EXPAND button, for the layer to become visible underneath while also staying put.
with the example you gave, 'marquee' everything goes from right to left! and the EXPAND button also dissapears untill the last item has gone past.

thanks for your help.
