Scrolling Text

Note that, although the <marquee> tag isn't an offical HTML tag, it is recognized by most of today's browsers. If you can't view the examples, it's likely that your browser doesn't support the <marquee> tag.


Right to Left (RTL)

This section contains text that scrolls horizontally (right to left, left to right, or a combination). As you can see, there are a number of options with your horizontal scroll.

Slide-In Text

This text slides in from the right, then stays where it is. You will need to refresh this page to see the effect again.
Example:


Your slide-in text goes here
Code:




Continuous scrolling text (RTL)

Example:

Your continuous scroll text goes here

Code:



Faster Scrolling

This example uses scrollamount="30" to increase the scroll speed.
Faster scrolling works better on continuous scrolling as opposed to slide-in text. This is because slide-in text stops after sliding in. If it slides in too fast, many users might miss the slide-in effect altogether.

Example:

Your continuous scrollable text goes here

Code:




Faster Bounce

This example uses scrollamount="30" to speed up the scrolling/bouncing text.

Example:

Your fast bouncing text goes here
Code:




Text Scrolling Up:

This text has a vertical scroll - it starts at the bottom and moves up. As with some of the previous examples, you can adjust the scroll speed by using the scrollamount attribute. You could also create a vertical slide by using behavior="slide".

Example:

Your upward scrolling text goes here
Code:





Text Scrolling Down:

This text also has a vertical scroll, but this time it starts at the top and moves down.

Example:

Your downward scroller text goes here
Code:




Various Scrolling Speeds:

This example demonstrates 3 different scrolling speeds.

Example:

Tortoise

Hare

Cheetah
Code:



Jumping Text


The following example uses the scrolldelay attribute to slow the scrolling text down and make it look like it's jumping across the screen. Actually, the example also uses the scrollamount attribute to increase the size of each jump.

Example:

Your continuous scroll text goes here
Code:
