I have a .GIF file I would like to have pulling a marquee across the screen, and then the .GIF leaves the page but does not take the marquee with it.

Something like the following................ But done using BV!!!!!!!!!!


Marquee = --- > [ Boats And More Boats ] Trawler pulling marquee. Trawler leaves [ Boats And More Boats ] centered on page. Trawler moves off the page and is gone.

54 This is the Trawler I want pulling the above mentioned marquee. This Trawler is an animated .GIF file.......

55 This is the .GIF of the type of Marquee I want the Trawler to pull onto page from left, drop the marquee at page end as the Trawler continues to move off the page.

Trawler is same as shown here but the marquee Marquee is to act as the header file when it has finished moving across the page.

Ram-

Is this what you are looking for?

If so- you first need to flip your boat from right to left. Paint can do this very eaisly. Then name the picture boat and save as either a gif or a jpg. and upload to the server.

Then open a html box and paste the following code- changing the words that I have put (The boat is pulling the words.....) to what ever you wish.
Save and publish.

<marquee width=400 height=40 direction="left"><img src="boat.gif"><font face="Comic Sans MS" size=5 color="#CC33FF">
The boat is pulling the words across your page..... </font></marquee>

You may also make the width bigger or smaller depending on your need.

As far as leaving a picture behind once part of the marquee disappears- that is beyond my ability. I believe that would be flash. Perhaps you would find the answer in vodabids?

Cheers,

Andy

There is one here that stops after one go, you have to refresh the page to repeat it.

The flash version is very cool and slow enough to read.

I use a program called Swishmax which you will find here
http://www.swishzone.com/index.php
It is heck of a lot cheaper than Macromedia flash (which is now owned by Adobe).
There are some free flash builders although they are slightly more limited.
Try these sites. Someone will probably come up with some more though knowing this site.

Just noticed the reply and am very pleased with the flash you showed here........

Now if I can get the pic earthlights ( Martech Inc. Yacht Coating Spe******ts ) to have more clarity then looking scrunched and blurry I will be doing alot of happy dancing for sure.

Next time you are in the USA, give me a holler and we can go to a pub for a tanker of Ale!!!!!


Much Abliged here RoyB. and all who have responded to this thread!
