Add row to jquery ticker

I want to create a fullscreen ticker which shows tweets when they come in.
I have worked on the twitter api and am fine with that.

The issue I need help with is using a jquery ticker framework to display them as they come in.

I want to use Query Advanced News Ticker (http://risq.github.io/jquery-advanced-news-ticker/index.html).

I have a simple example scrolling around 6 li points. I want to create a simple function that adds a row of data to the top and slide the ticker down every time it is called.



var nt;


  nt = $('.newsticker').newsTicker({
      row_height: 80,
      max_rows: 2,
      speed: 600,
      direction: 'up',
      duration: 4000,
      autostart: 1,
      pauseOnHover: 0

function addRow() {
  htmlData = "<li>NEW</li>";


.newsticker li {
  overflow: hidden;
  height: 80px;
  padding: 10px;
  line-height: 30px;
  list-style: none;
  font-size: 24px;
  text-align: left;
  border-bottom: 1px dotted #ccc;

<ul class="newsticker" style="border:1px solid red;">

I understand it has an ADD method but I cant get it working.

The other thing I just released is that it keeps scrolling. I want it to scroll through the list but not loop. Then scroll to the NEW rows when they are added.

This code works... I suspect it's just you weren't using a Capital T :)


function addRow() {
  htmlData = "<li>NEW</li>";

As for looping, that's by design so unfortunately you won't be able to stop it looping without changing the code

This is from the code:
this.$el.children('li:last').detach().prependTo(this.$el).css('marginTop', '-' + this.options.row_height + 'px')
