Using the Marquee Control

Adding marquees is easy. Simply place the marquee control on your form and adjust its size. Then specify the options to animate your text:

  • Marquees can also wordwrap and scroll verticallyThe text to display along with its font and style
  • Scrolling direction (Left, Right, Up, or Down)
  • Text Style (Normal, 3-D, or Shadow)
  • Colors
  • Optional word wrapping

You can then set the intervals and stepping properties to adjust the scrolling speed.

Data Binding Option

The Marquee control can be bound to a field so it displays the contents from your table.

Programmatic Options

No programming is required to use this control; however, all properties can be set via VBA, and there are events for mouse clicks and key presses.
