Hi,

say for eg: If I have some HTML that has divs or rows. Is it possible to animate them so that they slide upward continuously at a defined speed?

What I want to do is post some announcements into a div and have them slide on the webpage for an animated effect.

Please help...

Of course.  Jquery as you may know offers this as an option.

http://api.jquery.com/animate/

You can always DL the UI and play with the code here.

Hi Gary,

Your solution is very close but it is not very animated i.e it pauses and moves up but I am looking for more smooth and continuous moment. It needs to slow down a little bit.

Please help..

There will be a slight pause as it restarts the cycle

http://jsfiddle.net/uw9Ltx1d/8/

rowHeight = $("ul li").outerHeight();

ticker = " ul li";

children = $("div ul li").length;

$("div").append($("div").html())

var scroller = function () {
    $("ul:first").animate({
        marginTop: "-" + (children * rowHeight) + "px"
    }, 5000, function () {
        $("ul:first").insertAfter($("ul:last")).css("margin-top", 0);
        scroller()
    })
}

scroller()

Open in new window

Well you have to specify the class or ID of the UL - it won't work as it is if you just put in a page with other ul's in it.
