DESIGN IS OFTEN BEAUTY IN SIMPLICITY.
This scroller works using an invisible dragger which is activated by a simple mouseover action, no ugly scrollbars or up and down buttons. The text is HTML formatted and loaded dynamically using XML. It is masked to fade out top and bottom. All the text styles can be amended from within the XML file using standard HTML tags, including colour, size, style, weight, etc.
YOU CAN ALSO ADD IMAGES AND SWF FILES
THE FLA FILE: The file has been created to make usability as simple as possible, all the editable variables have been placed within their own layer. The size of the scrolling region is editable within this, along with the margins. This means that the scroller only activates over your designated area and NOT on Stage height. You can copy and paste multiple copies of the file into your site.
THE XML FILE: The file can be scripted using standard HTML tags.
FONT USE: Arial is used but can be replaced within the ‘Embed Font’ layer to your choice.
PLEASE NOTE: This file uses the “onMouseOver” listener, this can make hyperlinks from the xml file and other mouse events within embedded swf files hard to use. If this is part of the functionality you require this is not the file for you, this is an exercise in aesthetics.
