Hi,

I'm relatively new to VB.net but would like to challenge myself by creating a scrolling bar with information.

I have add an attachment on how it should look like in the end.
In the attached screenshot you see a white bar with some example text.

My problem is now on how to create this in vb.net?

I want to show dynamic data, for example gathered from Twitter of RSS.

Can someone please give me a example on how to do this?

Help would be appreciated on the following:

- What controls to use
- How to code these controls to show the dynamic data
- Howto let the controls scroll from right to left

of course any other advice is more than welcom.

Thanks,

Jurian

It helped me getting started but it was a poor example as it was flickering.
