Thread: Scrolling Text

    Scrolling Text

    Hello: I would love to have a MediaLab experiment in which "scrolling text" moves across the bottom of the screen (e.g. for a cognitive load manipulation in which the participant must attend to the instructions on the page as well as the scrolling text). Is this possible in MediaLab? I found the information below through google - does it help? Also, if scrolling text is possible can it a) be continuous across multiple screens within a que file and b) be continuous across multiple que files? Thanks! Dolly A HTML marquee is a scrolling piece of text displayed either horizontally across or vertically down your web site page depending on the settings. This page shows you how to make a scrolling marquee using div tags that are often seen in CSS (Cascading Style Sheets).
    This is cool!

    Hm. This is definitely possible through MediaLab. There's a few ways you could go about completing the task.
    1. Custom items allow for HTML to be used within your MediaLab experiment. By utilizing the power of a custom item, you could use the HTML ability to easily create scrolling marquee.
    2. Program a small tool that does the same task, and can be loaded at the start of the experiment.

    Option 1 will not allow for a continuous scroll through multiple experiment items; whereas option 2 will.

    Programming a small tool like this may be a bit daunting; however if you could provide me with your completed experiment, the text required to be scrolling through, and an in-depth explanation of when you want the text to be displayed, how big you want it, where you want it to be on screen, and how long you want it to be displayed for, I would gladly consider taking the time to write a tool up for you that you could use alongside with your experiment.
