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.


The Gruen Transfer – SharePoint Designs that Rock

Design Panel Members

We’ll go through a number of award winning intranet & website designs that have been done using SharePoint & rate the good & bad.


Sounds like some great content – and a good opportunity to meet up with some SharePoint peers & buddies – and – you can win a prize !
