Scrolling text

Could someone point me in the direction of a good text scroller for Delphi 4.  I need to be able to read a record from a database, scroll the text a number of times, depending on the user's options, and then scroll the next message.
I have one banner component, but I can't get it to repeat a string that set number of times.

He,
I will try it as soon as I get the chance. Thanks

I have only been with Freeserve for a month, but they are not bad.  I get average downloads of about 5 kb/sec on my 56k modem.  The only things I have found annoying is the time it take to connect.  I can range from 5 seconds to 30 seconds on a bad day, and every now and again the connections pauses for a few seconds which can be annoying if you are in a hurry to do something.  Other than that I have no major problems with them.  90% of the time they are okay, but with only one telephone number they can get a bit busy.

Regards, Andrew

Although the marquee was good, I've found it easier to a label across using a timer.  The only problems is that every now and again the label flashes.  Do you know any way to prevent this brief flash, as it gets annoying.

Thanks, Andrew.
