help! create scoll text in powerbuilder 7

anyone who can help me on creating scrolling text using powerbuilder 7...i'm exploring the features of this powerbuilder thanks in advance...

RE: help! create scoll text in powerbuilder 7

As far as I know, there are no out-of-the box options for this. I've played around with this using a string stored as an instance variable which is set to the full text you want to scroll, a timer event, and then using the Mid( ) function to display a substring of the instance variable. It worked, but I never had a practical application for it.
