Security News - Code - Just cut and past the code below!
Here is a list of its features:
- Smooth vertical scroll.
- Unlimited amount of text.
- Virtually unlimited number of URL links (16 million).
- Variable speed.
- Automatic word wrap, so you don't have to format your text.
- Use standard HTML tags within the text file to bold or italicize any portion of the text, as well as change its color, center the text, and insert line breaks.
- Clickable links, again using (pretty much) standard HTML tags, with optional target names, so the applet is usable in a framed environment.
- You can use mailto: in the URL so you can include email links.
- You can specify default text and URL colors (normal and highlight) in the HTML, with overrides allowed for each within the text file.
- User-specified text font and size.
- Links are highlighted when the mouse moves over the text.
- URLs or associated text will display in the browser status line area.
- Automatic pause (optional) on specified text lines.
- The scrolling is (optionally) stopped when you hold the mouse over the display. If you use the option to NOT stop the scroll with the mouse over, clicking and releasing on the display when the scroll is paused (via the PAUSE tag) will allow the display to begin scrolling again.
- Text can be scrolled up or down manually by clicking and dragging the mouse.
- Text is read in from an external file, so that no changes are ever required in the HTML when the text is updated.
- Comment lines are allowed in the text file. They do not display.
- The initial "Please wait..." message can be turned off if you prefer not to see it, or you can substitute your own text.
- User-specified background color or image.
- Optional pad area around the text display.
