horizontal news ticker w/ jQuery (marquee kind of thing)
Iím currently trying to put a horizontal news scroller on a page and since Iím using jQuery already I wanted to have something using this framework. However, all I found so far isnít 100% satisfying for me so far.
The best I could find was liScroll which works but makes me a little suspicious as the script hasnít been updated since 2007. OK, this could as well be a sign that the script is perfect and it is working in all major browsers but it has a huge gap after the last news item has passed. I would like it to be completely circular, i. e. the first news item should come right after the last one again without huge gap. Does anybody know what I would have to modify? I canít for the life of me find whatís causing the gap.
I also tried to modify the news ticker script on http://net.tutsplus.com/tutorials/ja...y-news-ticker/ (to make it horizontal) and it works perfectly in Firefox if I change all
height occurrences to
marginLeft but IE refuses to accept this (i. e. doesnít scroll).
The last option I tried was to use scrollableís autoscroll plugin but it doesnít work as smoothly as the other ones and I think itís not so well suited for this purpose.
So Iím totally grateful for any help you can give me.
