    Putting scrolling text over Java applet?

    I am really not sure if this is the right place to post, but I am having trouble figuring out how to make text scroll on a Java applet. (Lake.class) What I am after is something along the lines of a scrolling marquee where the text goes up from the bottom of the screen--or in my case a frame. I just do not have the foggiest idea of how to accomplish such a thing. I have, however, seen it done before.

    Here's the code I am using:

    (applet code="Lake.class" width="281" height="260")
    (param name=image value="moonwater2.jpg")
    (/applet)

    I replaced the > with ) just for this post. ^_^

    Anyway, if it helps here is the URL to design I'm working on. The top right section featuring the moon is the problem area.

    Thanks so much in advance for any help!

    This would most likely require you to edit the Java applet itself.

    Since Java is compiled into byte-code, you cannot do this unless you have a source file ( .java file ).

    I would suggest searching for something like 'Java Lake Effect with Scrolling Text'

    Hope this was a help

    P.S. Java is one nifty language, im learning that and c++ now..

    Thanks Erik!

    I did a search for 'Java Lake Effect with Scrolling Text' and finally came up with what I was looking for. (after much confusion)

    I know basically nothing about Java, so your post was extremely helpful. It's all I can do to tackle basic html. lol!
