Simple vertical scroller.


This is a very simple scroller script that can be added to any HTML page. This Example has been tested and is compatible in IE, Netscape, Firefox, and Opera browsers.


This example is being done using the jQuery framework.

Using the code

HTML Structure
<div id="tickerwrapper">
    <div class="container">
            <li>1 </li>
            <li>2 </li>
            <li>3 </li>
            <li>4 </li>
            <li>5 </li>
            <li>6 </li>


ul li{list-style:none}
#tickerwrapper ul li{padding:5px;text-align:center}
#tickerwrapper .container{background:#ccc;height:31px;overflow:hidden;width:150px;} 

JavaScript code

var containerheight = 0;
var numbercount = 0;
var liheight;
var index = 1;

function callticker() {    
    $(".container ul").animate({
        "margin-top": (-1) * (liheight * index)
    }, 2500);
    if (index != numbercount - 1) {
        index = index + 1;
    else {
        index = 0;
    timer = setTimeout("callticker()", 100);
$(document).ready(function() {
    numbercount = $(".container ul li").size();
    liheight = $(".container ul li").outerHeight();
    containerheight = $(".container ul  li").outerHeight() * numbercount;
    $(".container ul").css("height", containerheight);
