ZLC - ZEBU's Marquee Applet


Marquee is a Java Applet.
The Applet scrolls any given text in any color and any direction.
The following parameters can be used:

The values of background and foreground color are either hexadecimal values or equal to the predefined values available in every Java Applet, this means: black, blue, cyan, darkGray, gray, green, lightGray, magenta, orange, pink, red, yellow, and white. If a color is defined with a hexadecimal value, use the following form: 0xaarrggbb (aa: alpha value, rr: red value, gg: green value, bb: blue value)


The following html code was used to produce this demo:
< applet archive="marqueeByZEBU.jar" code="marqueeByZEBU.class" width="350" height="150" >
< param name="bgcolor" value="darkGray" >
< param name="fgcolor" value="0xFF0080FF" >
