Lower third Text scrolling

Post by proloy » Wed Oct 11, 2017 7:37 am

Dear,
i like to make Lower third Text scrolling with speed control and only selected lines (with a check box) will be add in fld "scroll" but don't know how and where to start. if there any example project out there, then it'll be helpful for me.

I read move command in dictionary, but no luck.

Code: Select all

on mouseUp
put fld "text1" into fld "scroll"
   
end mouseUp
plz advice..

Hi proloy,

not sure what exactly you are trying to do, but you are looking for "scroll"
...
set the scroll of fld "scroll" to 10
## or any value in pixel from 0 to the formattedheight of fld "scroll"
...


Best

Klaus

Hi.

1- "Lower Third". Does this mean you want the bottom portion of a scrolling field to scroll, but the top stays the same?

2- You can make a gadget that will scroll at a variable rate, perhaps by cursor motion or some other means. That sounds like fun. But is that what you wanted?

3- Is it that you want a scrolling field with only certain lines containing a checkbox?

You need to explain more fully. Please try to address the three items above separately.

Thanks kalus & dunbarx for your reply.

Plz check the attachment.
Some one write this program in VB. i like to make it in LC.
In pic:
1) Text Field:Where write a News.
2) Check box: only selected News will be shown in "7"
3) Img: before starting of each News line.
4) Speed: it's control scroll speed. (it will be shown in "7")
5) Add/Remove: Add or remove text field+check box+img

7) Program Out: News Scrolling which is shown in TV Screen. (This is lower Third :))

I can make 1 and 7, and stuck in 2 to 5 :D

Thanks.

Hi proloy,

1. my name is Klaus!
If you can't spell it, copy and paste it!

2. For #1, #2 and #3 I would use a datagrid of type FORM, which can hold a checkbox and an image per line.
This is however not really beginners stuff.

3. For #3 check "imagesource" in the dictionary.

4.. Please check this lesson for horizontal scrolling text:
http://lessons.livecode.com/m/2592/l/12 ... ext-banner
You could control the "speed" with a scrollbar via the "wait" message in the lesson.

5. Number 6 is missing!? :D


Best

Klaus (not kalus or whatever!)

Dear Klaus,

1. i did it :D
2. datagrid is complicated for me, cuz i can't edit in row/columns. That's why i tried with fld. check attachment.
CheckBox Name:
Check1
Check2
Check3

My checkbox code:

Code: Select all

on mouseUp
   if the hilite of me =true 
   then
      select line 8 of field "News" 
    else
      select empty
   end if
end mouseUp
Checkbox Group Name: Checkboxes

Button Code (vedus write this code for some one):

Code: Select all

on mouseUp
   set the useUnicode to true
repeat with x = 1 to number of buttons of grp "Checkboxes"
  if the hilite of btn x of grp "Checkboxes" then
   put unidecode(the unicodelabel of btn x of grp "Checkboxes","utf8") & cr after mylist
  end if
end repeat
set the unicodetext of fld "Lower" to uniencode(mylist,"utf8")
end mouseUp
But no result in fld "Lower"
Am i going wrong?
Plz advice...

What version of LC are you using?
"unidecode", "uniencode", "unicodetext" etc. have beeen deprecated since version 7!

From that screen shot, I'd guess 8.x or higher.
