Examples

The following example uses the MARQUEE element to scroll the marquee from left to right across the screen, moving it 10 pixels every 200 milliseconds.

<MARQUEE DIRECTION=RIGHT BEHAVIOR=SCROLL SCROLLAMOUNT=10 SCROLLDELAY=200>
This is a scrolling marquee.
</MARQUEE>

The following example shows some uses of the scrollLeft and scrollTop properties with the marquee element.

<MARQUEE id=m1 direction=right style="border-width:2px;border-style:solid;" 
width=200 height=200>right</MARQUEE><BR>
<!-- Push this button to read the scrollLeft and scrollTop property values 
as the marquee scrolls. -->
<BUTTON onclick="alert('scrollLeft: ' + m1.scrollLeft + ' scrollRight: ' + m1.scrollTop)">
Read</BUTTON>
<!--When the marquee is stopped, you can set scrollLeft in a horizontal marquee, 
or set scrollTop in a vertical marquee.   -->
<BUTTON onclick="m1.stop();m1.scrollLeft = 190;">Stop & Set scrollLeft=190
</BUTTON>
<BUTTON onclick="m1.start();">Start</BUTTON>

Notes

Remarks

The default width of the MARQUEE element is equal to the width of its parent element. When a MARQUEE is in a TD that does not specify a width, you should explicitly set the width of MARQUEE. If neither the MARQUEE nor the TD has a width specified, the marquee is collapsed to a 1-pixel width. To create a vertically scrolling marquee, set its scrollLeft property to 0. To create a horizontally scrolling marquee, set its scrollTop property to 0, overriding any script setting. The scrollLeft and scrollTop properties are read-only while the marquee is scrolling. When not scrolling, scrollLeft is read/write for a marquee set to scroll horizontally and scrollTop is read/write for a marquee set to scroll vertically.
