George's Expandable ticker

Author: Dynamic Drive

Description: Quite possibly the only ticker of its kind out there, George's Expandable Ticker brings together the best of two worlds to create a ticker that can be viewed both sequentially and simultaneously. Some great features of this script are:

  • Uses CSS to control most visual aspects of the scroller, for easy customization.
  • Script automatically creates a "summary" of each ticker message and adds it to the "Expand" menu.
  • Cross browser functional- NS4, NS6+, IE4+, Opera 7.

This script is a variation on the original Expandable Ticker Script. This original is suitable for single-lined messages, while this one, multi-lined. Finally, George is one of our in-house developers, and hence the name. :)
