19.5. Controlling the Style of Marquee Animations (-wap-marquee-style Property)

Preferences - Do not show ads

The -wap-marquee-style WCSS property is used to specify how a marquee block should scroll across the screen of a mobile device. The following three marquee styles are available for use by your mobile Internet application:

  1. Scroll

  2. Slide

  3. Alternate

The default value of the -wap-marquee-style property is "scroll". Thus, the marquee animations shown in the earlier screenshots are of the scroll style.

19.5.1. Scroll Marquee Style

Description of an animation of the scroll marquee style:

  • At the beginning, the marquee block is off one side (left side or right side. It depends on the value of the -wap-marquee-dir WCSS property) of the mobile device's screen totally.

  • Then the marquee block scrolls to the other side of the mobile device's screen.

  • At the end, the marquee block is off the side of the screen totally.

  • The animation repeats if the value of the -wap-marquee-loop WCSS property is larger than 1.

The following XHTML MP/WAP CSS example shows how a marquee animation of the scroll style looks in some mobile phone browsers. The direction of the marquee animation is set to right-to-left in the following XHTML MP/WAP CSS example. (Note that the default values of the -wap-marquee-dir property and the -wap-marquee-style property are "rtl" and "scroll" respectively, which means the WCSS styles "-wap-marquee-dir: rtl" and "-wap-marquee-style: scroll" can actually be omitted in the following example.)
