I require a text scroller component (ocx) to plug-in to my visual basic program. The scroller must provide a broadcast quality smooth scrolling effect with no jerks, line-spits or other artifacts.
Text will scroll right to left, although the ability to change direction left/right/up/down would be handy.
My program will be playing video clips and performing other processor-intensive tasks in the background and this MUST NOT affect the scrolling operation in any way.
Scroller text, speed, background colour, foreground colour, font and size must all be adjustable through properties.
I will need the scroller to hold at least 1000 characters. When text is changed, I need the option to make that change instantly, or at the end of the next scroll cycle.
