Ask Mr. D - JavaScript

By Bill Daugherty
Posted Monday, December 6, 2004

Dear Mr. D,

I have noticed several websites that have a sale's message that scrolls across their title bar. Another site I visited had a sale's message scrolling across the status bar.

These messages really caught my eye. I figure if they are eye catching then they must be great sales tools.

I want to install something like that on my site, but I can't find out how to do it. I have several books on HTML, but none of them cover anything that that.

Do you know how it's done. Please keep it simple. I don't have much experience in web design.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Signed,

Sandra

Dear Sandra,

The scrolling marquee type messages are are produced by JavaScript codes. That's why you couldn't find them in any of your HTML books.

JavaScript codes can produce some great effects on your site. The great part is you don't have to learn to write these codes, you can just go to any of several free JavaScript sites and find a great array of scripts. These scripts are free for you to use and they come with simple installation instructions.

My favorite free Javascript site is at: (http://javascript.internet.com) - but if you don't find what you want there, just go to any of the major search engines and conduct a search. You will find several excellent free sites.

I hope this answered your question, if not - just email me.
