Scrolling HTML Basics, Part II: The HTML Feed - www.docjavascript.com


The HTML Feed

The HTML feed for our scroller box is a regular HTML file. You'll probably want to put bullets inside this page, separated by a <BR> or a <P> tag. Since we use two identical HTML files that are concatenated to each other, make sure there is an additional tag at the end of the file, or else it will be apparent where the stitching is.

You can format the bullets as you wish, add GIFs, and so on. Each bullet can be a link as well. Using links, you can provide a lot of pointers in your page, in a relatively small space.

In Internet Explorer, you have to call the fillCanvas() function from within your feed external file. Make sure to delay it, as otherwise unexpected results are achieved. Here is the script you need to put in the feed file:

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript1.2">
<!--
var pause = 100;
function start() {
  setTimeout("parent.fillCanvas()", pause);
}
window.onload = start;
//-->
</SCRIPT>

Here is our HTML feed that list all DOC JavaScript columns:
