Thanks a lot !

As the help file says, when the NumLoops is complete the Active Property (may be the variable [hpwRealTimeMarqueeActive] ?) should be setted to false.

Could you check if there are any way to send to a NeoBook variable this new value or launch a Marquee_OnEndLoop Callback function ? Because I need know when the loop is complete to reasign the new text and restart the marquee.

Thanks again !

I will asked Kambiz if he can add such event to his component.

Latest info from Kambiz:
Sorry for the delay in answering back.
I'll look at the component in near future to see what can I do.

Thanks Hans-Peter,

I did the process using the <marquee> tag within html file displaying a text line.
I discovered the way to catch te "onEnd" event.

Thanks again,
David de Argentina

Just upload a new hpwRealTimeMarquee 2.04: ... ook20.html

New variable [Rectanglename_LoopCount]
New action [RectangleName_WrapAction] performs between each loop.
New action [RectangleName_EndLoopAction] performs when loop ends.

Thanks to Kambiz for the tip to use the OnWrap-event for the EndLoop-checking.

hpwRealTimeMarqueeSetVar "[hpwRealTimeMarqueeAlignment]" ""
doesn't add alignment or [variable name] to editor (leaves empty quotes)
[hpwRealTimeMarqueeOrientation] has the same problem, seems there are more of them

is it possible to have marquee background transparent (or picture)?

Currently not. I had a discussion about a similar topic with Kambiz back in 2009.
But that results not in a usable plugin.
Making the background transparent will be very difficult, since plugin does not know what is behind it.
A picture as its own background might be the possible option.
But further investigation is needed.
I will have a look.

maybe you would shorten all variable and action names like [hpwRealTimeMarqueeOrientation] to [hpwRTMOrientation] or [hpwMarqueeOrientation] or smth else? (for usability reasons)

I did some test with the AlphaBlend property of the marqee-form but unfourtunatly that did not work for the plugin.
And the component has no support for a image background.

So currently it is not possible.

I know its been a while since the subject of using marquees but I am revisiting this excellent plugin from Hans Peter.
I remember this being very smooth but I have tried this on several machines running Windows 7 and it never seems to run perfectly smoothly.
I have tried switching the Aero desktop off and have a fast hard drive and graphics card but the text seems to have little micro stutters.

Is this just my machines are are others having issues?

I'm observing some random and little micro stutters on Windows 7 (64Bits).
I think the problem may be Internet Explorer, not the Plugin.

I also see this micro stutter on my Win7 tablet.
But I think this was also the case on my older (slower) XP-System.
I think it might be the combination of OS and plugin and graphic system.
It might be possible to verify it with the RealTimeMarquee nativ demo-app.

Thanks for the reply Hans-Peter,

I tried your original demo and this still has a stutter.
I cant believe I missed this originally if it stuttered. I remember is being perfect as I was using flash and that stopped when reading large files.
I need to find an old xp machine to test the original demo.
