September 12, 2012 0 Comments

If you are looking for a simple java script to show a scrolling message on the status bar then you can use this script.

TWO STEPS TO INSTALL WRITE AND SLIDE

  1. Paste the coding into the HEAD of your HTML document
  2. Copy the onLoad event handler into the BODY tag

STEP ONE: Copy this code into the HEAD of your HTML document

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript"> <!-- Begin

var Message="Yet another simple scroll!";

var place=1;

function scrollIn() {

window.status=Message.substring(0, place);

if (place >= Message.length) {

place=1;

window.setTimeout("scrollOut()",300);

} else {

place++;

window.setTimeout("scrollIn()",50);

}

}

function scrollOut() {

window.status=Message.substring(place, Message.length);

if (place >= Message.length) {

place=1;

window.setTimeout("scrollIn()", 100);

} else {

place++;

window.setTimeout("scrollOut()", 50);

}

}

// End -->

</SCRIPT> 


STEP TWO: Add this onLoad() event handler into the BODY tag

<BODY onLoad="scrollIn()">
