Semi-Transparent Marquee

Postby Kambiz » March 19th, 2009, 4:39 pm

Something came in my mind and because of curiosity I wrote it to see how it looks.

It's the demo of Real-Time Marquee Component as semi-transparent. And, in the background there is an instance of PicShow Component.

The attached file contains source and executable of the demo (written in Delphi 7). If you are going to compile the demo, you need the following components:

Very interesting!
What would I need to do it in front of my own component/Bitmap?
Is the Real-Time Marquee Component changed or is it the release version 2.0 ?
Would be a nice option for the 2.0 neobook-plugin.

The SlideShow.Exe from the demo rar only shows a black full-screen with the scrolling yellow marquee-text!
It also show no icons with the scrolling text.

I have not compiled it myself, since I have not installed all the used components.

There is nothing new.

It's just a trick. I put the marquee on a borderless form with AlphaBlend set to 192.

I guess you didn't extract the files with directory structure.

Yes, that was the reason.
Now it works and looks very good.
Impressive demo.

Remove FindFileW.pas from your package. This unit is TNT version of FindFile.pas.

Sorry for the inconvenience but I don't have the original file.

When I moved the site from old host to the current one, I realized that the most of posts' attachments are corrupted. Sadly, I was also backing up the damaged files for the past several years.
