Create scrolling (running)news ticker using Jquery

Hello everyone, have you ever seen this kind of tip ? I am sure you have seen it on some websites , or you have known how to make it on blogger.But let me explain to you what is the different from the old and this.

I don't know where the old running text come from , but I am sure that is not attractive much, you will be dizzy when you look at the running text.So that is the difference ,with this post, I will guide you how to make a completely new Scrolling news ticker with smooth effect that you will not be dizzy anymore.



That's it ! Now lets go to make it:
1.First you have to add this script code before your </head> tag :

<script src="http://jqueryjs.googlecode.com/files/jquery-1.3.2.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>


2.There are 2 types of scrolling :
-If you want the scrolling to stop when the cursor is over it, use this code and add it before the </body> tag or paste it in HTML/Javascript in Layout.

<DIV ID="TICKER" STYLE="overflow:hidden; width:520px" onmouseover="TICKER_PAUSED=true" onmouseout="TICKER_PAUSED=false">
Your text here!
</DIV>
<script type="text/javascript" src="webticker_lib.js" language="javascript"></script>


-If you don't want the ticker stop when the cursor is over it , try this code add paste at the same place I told you above:

<DIV ID="TICKER" STYLE="overflow:hidden; width:520px">
Your text here
</DIV>
<script type="text/javascript" src="webticker_lib.js" language="javascript"></script>


Note:
-Download the js file above (click on Download link), you will get 1 js file, upload it to your favorite host and get the direct link, i offer you some good hosts as 110mb.com, hotlinkfiles.com...Then paste the link instead of the red code.
-You have to put long text,if your texts are not long enough, it will not run!

Ok now , if you want to change a little bit about the "scrolling text" style , you have to open the webticker_lib.js file then look for these lines:

TICKER_RIGHTTOLEFT = false;
TICKER_SPEED = 2;
TICKER_STYLE = "font-family:Arial; font-size:12px; color:#444444";
TICKER_PAUSED = false;

You can edit the file webticker_lib.js and change the values for the following variables:

TICKER_RIGHTTOLEFT

Set to true if the text is in Arabic, Hebrew or other right-to-left writing language.

TICKER_SPEED

Set the scrolling speed. Default value is 2.

TICKER_STYLE

Set the default style for the scrolling text.

TICKER_PAUSED

When this variable is set to true, the scrolling ticker is paused.
This value can be changed at runtime, for example when the mouse is over the ticker.
