ScrollColor Applet


 

The ScrollColor Java applet displays a user supplied text string in a rainbow of colors on a black background. It allows selection of the font name and style as well as the speed of the color rotation. The font size is dynamically adjusted to best fit the applet display window. You can also define the width and color of a 3D border around the applet window. Here is an example of the ScrollColor applet:

The HTML applet tag defines the width and height of the applet window. In addition, the ScrollColor applet is controlled through six optional HTML parameters.

  • usertext - Defines the text that is displayed in the applet window. It defaults to the copyright message if none is supplied.
  • fontname -Defines the name of the font used to display the text. It defaults to "Serif" if none is supplied.
  • fontstyle - Defines the style of the font used to display the text. It defaults to "bold" if none is supplied. Allowed values: plain, bold, italic or bold-italic.
  • sleeptime - Defines the number of milliseconds to sleep between increments of color movement. It defaults to 100 if none is supplied or if the supplied value is not in the range of 10 through 1000.
  • 3DBdrWdth - Defines the width in pixels of the 3D border around the display window. It defaults to 0 if none is supplied or if the supplied value is not in the range of 0 through 10.
  • bdrRGB - Defines the 3D border color. The format is: nnn nnn nnn - where nnn may range from 0 through 255. It defaults 0 255 255 (cyan) if none is supplied or if the supplied value is out of range.

If you are running a current browser, check out the interactive capabilities of ScrollColor. These capabilities allow you to dynamically adjust parameters until you obtain the look that you want. Then all you have to do is plug the parameters into your HTML file.
