I have mod'd the example seen here:
http://www.donorchoice.com/st2003/newsFlash/latestnewsNew.html

to load variables from my database. That is working fine. But I'd like to have the news scroll automatically, continuously until he user floats over one of the news items ( instead of using the buttons. Each news item has a dynamic variable already assigned to it.

Please see the following dhtml example :
http://www.donorchoice.com/st2003/main.asp

This is exactly what I wanted, but apparently the marquee tag is flakey for different browsers and displays funny for Mac. Hence me trying to implement Flash instead.

Thanx in advance,
N

Found a bunch there - some using the built in ticker component from MX - but I was having a hard time getting my data variables in....don't have the time to muck with it anymore.

Found this http://www.dmxzone.com/showDetail.asp?TypeId=2&NewsId=3975

Which is working perfectly

Cheers
