Content from database?

Question:

Can I populate the AutoScroller with content from a database?

Answer:

Yes, because the AutoScroller consists of 2 nested, absolute positioned DIV tags (= regular HTML elements), you can put any content you like in it.

There is a tutorial here at DMXzone at http://www.dmxzone.com/ShowDetail.asp?NewsId=3975 that explains how to draw the content for the AutoScroller from a database.

Marja Ribbers-de VroedWell, what's there to tell?

I worked as a software engineer for a well-known Dutch software company for about 10 years. But then I decided I did not want to work there anymore.
Since then, I've been working with my husband in our own company.

I "discovered" web development early 2000, and I soon found out that I could actually create my own extra (DHTML) features in Dreamweaver by building custom extensions.
My first extension was Cross-browser AutoScroller, but I've developed several other ones since then.
