     What? Another marquee? Yep. Put into 1 class and 1 usercontrol file. Can contain separate text "blocks" each with it own forecolor. Use the mouse to drag the display from left to right (or right to left) during the scrolling (just in case you missed out something that scrolled away). Continuous scrolling (does NOT wait if the last block is out of view, then start the first block, BUT glues the first block to the last one, so you see no break). Can place separator between blocks. It looks like the BBC News ticker. Click event on each text "block", scroll speed, colours, font, etc. Just download and see for yourself. Need more convincing? Someone quoted this is the best marquee on PSC yet....

Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
