View Full Version : How do I make a graphic scroll across page

03-04-2003, 03:22 AM
Could someone please tell me what I need to download to make a graphic scroll across the screen of my webpage? I want it to be continuous with no white spaces between the end of the graphic and the beginning. I made some email stationery that scrolls across the top and I am trying to put a sample of the stationery on my website. I am totally new to this and would really appreciate any help that you can give me.

See my home page (http://members.cox.net/roysinclair/) . The script that scrolls the background on that page is quite versatile, see also the sample page at http://members.cox.net/roysinclair/bgscroller.html.

Note that the script only works in IE right now, it should work in Mozilla but a bug in Mozilla prevents it's working right now. It might work in some of the other new browsers but I've not tested it with them since I've never thought the script had much true utility.

I'm having some major trouble with that page using IE6. It looked like there was a loop and it just kept flashing 3 different gif names in the status bar.

If the background doesn't show then something's set up to cause it to try to reload the background image (which is HUGE) every time it's supposed to animate. It works fine for me using IE 6 but it was really more of an exercise in OOP than a serious script for me.

It works fine for me in IE6.

But regarding the question, try dynamicdrive.com I think they have a couple of good scripts for making images scroll.
