Create a flashy news scroller without even thinking about using flash
Jonathan Grasso, Stargate Group
A brief overview on how to create a news scroller/fader for sharepoint.
Functionality includes: automatically cycle between news items on a time. Hover on a news article to skip to it directly, or simply hover on the news itself to pause the and read the article
Easy implementation – only uses one webpart, one sharepoint list, and a custom css and jquery file.
In this presentation I will go over the steps taken to create the news scroller in sharepoint, including the trials and pitfalls associated. Also, I will be briefly mentioning the required technologies: jquery, css, html, dataviews and sharepoint lists.
