What kind of content can I put in the scroller?

Question:


What kind of content can I put in the scroller?

Answer:



Because the scroller consists of several nested, absolute positioned DIV tags (= regular HTML elements), you can put almost any content you like in it: text, images, Flash, etc.
However, it is not a good idea to put forms or form fields in the scroller, because that won't work reliably cross-browser.

You can populate the scroller with static content or pull dynamic content from a database. It’s really up to you!

Read the tutorial on http://www.dmxzone.com/ShowDetail.asp?NewsId=3975 if you don't know how to populate the scroller dynamically from a database. The DHTML scroller used in that tutorial is not Scroller Genie, but the principle is the same.
