Inserting graphic into scrolling ticker
on Apr 14, 2006 at 3:11:47 am

I have a scrolling ticker/marquee done in FlashMX Pro 2004. The ticker content is pulling from XML. At the beginning of the feed, I am inserting a reference to the news source- "news provided by Reuters." I want to change this to insert a logo graphic. Could anyone tell me how to do this?
Below is where I am inserting the text. I'm a newbie, so bear with me. :)

my_txt.text += ("News Provided by Reuters * "+my_xml.firstChild.firstChild.nodeValue+" * ")

You could always set up a blank movie clip in your library that is the height of your scrollticker and insert a dynamic text box/any graphics you want into the blank clip. Load the xml text into the dynamic text just as you would normally.

Then just duplicate the blank clip into the ticker and mask it so that only the part going over the ticker shows. Write the script such that your blank clip scrolls.
