Scrollable Text Skins

Post by eclectic-tech »

Vertical Scrolling ~ Mouse Wheel Control ~ Bi-Directional ~ Variable Speed ~
Pause/Stop ~ Auto-Scrollable ~ Re-Sizable Display & Auto-Formatting ~
Customization ~ Configuration Editor ~ More...

I put these demo skins (text | forum | lyrics) together so others can utilize a scrollable 'window' for their creations.
Put your mouse over the skin, and roll the wheel to see the scrolling start, roll further to increase the scroll speed, hit the stop/pause button, roll the wheel the other way and change the direction and speed, then open the configuration and play with the settings. Have fun!

You are free to utilize, brutalize, and modify it any way you want to get what you need.

Thanks to REDK for the Scroller Plug-in and to Manci5 for ideas on manipulation.

Made a few mods (now version 1.2):
  • * Added an overlay to example scroll text.
    * Added options to configuration.
    * Corrected setting of StepRate configuration (overridden in some skins).
    * 4 skins: text | news | forum | lyrics
