Custom Widget w/ News Ticker

Hello fellow Webinerds,

I was watching a broadcast recently that had a scrolling news ticker widget at the bottom of the console. I would really like to add something like that to mine but I can’t figure out how it was done. My question is; have any of you seen this before and if so, do you know how to do it?

I am not really sure that you mean / looking for @clint :blush:

I had a few thoughts…

  • I found a sample HTML script for scrolling text and put it in the “Text” tool…no luck.
  • Maybe it was a gif image? Did the content change or was it the same message over and over again?
  • If they have an on-demand version, go back and maybe see if you can use the Google Chrome Inspector to see what code is around the box?


Is that ticker not the CC (closed caption) functionality?
