    simple program needed (announcement scroller)

    I need a simple program that is a text scroller, has to be interactive, there shd be an interface for user to key in the text that is needed to be scrolled. sort of like an announcement program, to be run offline on a pc. can be in any language, but preferably java. anyone knows where i can find something like this? or if anyone can produce this simple software for me i'm willing to pay.

    dhtml?

    Have you thought about using dhtml? There are a few scripts you could use at Dynamic Drive. Look in the "scrollers" section.

    I've done a very simple app for a hospital's announcement screen in a waiting area. There's a management page where you enter in text/picture for some number of pages - this then produces dHTML pages which get shown in turn, with each page scrolling down to the end of its text. However, the management bit is also browser based, using ASP, so you'd have to have a compliant webserver (eg Personal Web Server) going on your PC. You could have it for some nominal sum.
