marquee tag in HTML

Postposted on Sat Jan 04, 2003 4:26 pm

I was in some forum on another site a few days ago, and I saw a guy with a VERTICAL marquee. I know how to do the horizontal tags, but can someone relay how to make a vertical one? Thanks.

<marquee behavior = "scroll">"scroll to end of screen, then loop back to the right"</marquee>

<marquee behavior="slide">"slide to end of screen and stop"</marquee>

<marquee behavior="alternate">"alternate from side to side"</marquee>

I know it's got direction="up" as a property, but, the one I saw had a [something]="50" as well. I'm guessing that this is the height in pixels, but I haven't been able to implement it.

mac_h8r1: I notice that link you posted brings one to Adelphia.

How much do you pay them for that web page? From what I can tell, they make you pay at least some amount to put up a page. :evil:

Hi. Lol, you'll kick yourself when I tell you this:

<marquee behavior = "down">"vertical marquee starting from top, and ending at the bottom"</marquee>

......also, instead of down, you can also use "up"

Ragnar Dan, I get adelphia's PowerLink cable internet services. As a part of the package, they give you 4 e-mail addresses. One of the four e-mail addresses can be the ~[username] for your website. Adelphia gives you 10 megs free for that one account. Additional web hosting services will cost you $$. I like their services because I can access my files and folders through windows and through frontpage, rather than through a proprietary service like geocities.


pattouk, thanks, but behavior can only be "alternate", "slide", or "scroll".

alternate bounces back and forth from one side to another and back.
slide starts on one side, slides to the other side, and stops.
scroll is a real marquee in that it actually goes from one side of the screen to another, then loops back and starts over.

you were most likely referring to direction, which can be "up", "down", "left", and "right".

go to my web site. on the home page, right click in empty space and select "view source". you will see how the different properties are implemented.

Mistake

Postposted on Fri Jan 10, 2003 3:12 am

Hi. Sorry, but I was wrong before, I've looked at the HTML I've used in the past, as it is actually:

<marquee direction = down>"vertical marquee starting from top, and ending at the bottom"</marquee>

....sorry for the mistake before hand.

It's "marquee" still IE-only ?

It was first time I saw it. I have to admit I never use it.

Hm. I have Adelphia, and I can't say I know much about it (obviously) as far as the web stuff. For my last ISP, I can't remember what I had to do to set that up, either, since it was so long ago, but I probably had to call them up to get my permissions set to set up my home page. After that I figured the rest out for myself.

I'll have to find that phone number and see what they tell me.

Thanks.

Yeah, internet exploder is the only browser I know of that suppports it. Netscrape, on the other hand, supports a "blink" tag, which microsoft has yet to implement in IE.

The only way to "properly" do a marquee is to use DHTML/Javascript. Create two layers, one containint the text, larger than and contained in the second layer, which is the "window". You create the text layer inside the "window", and make it scroll in whatever direction you wish using a timer and absolute positioning.

Guys, try not to use the <marquee> tag, because it has HORRID compactability with Netscape

netSCRAPE should work on that, just as internet EXPLODER should work on the blink tag.
