You have an ability to fade images which belong to one banner or fade images from different banners. You have 14 different fade methods to select and ability to control fade speed and quality.
Step 1: Download TextBanner.zip file in your computer.
Step 2: Unpack TextBanner.zip file. It contains 4 files: TextBanner.jar, ReadMe.txt, sample.html, banner.txt. You can open sample.html file in your browser to check that the applet is working.
Step 3: Upload textbanner.jar file to your web site (or copy it to the directory on local computer).
Step 4: Put following text into the webpage which will show the applet (you already have it in zip package but you can use mouse to cut it and paste from here):
<applet CODE="TextBanner" ARCHIVE="TextBanner.jar"
<param name="BNRFILE" value="banner.txt">
<param name="SHOWTIME" value="-1">
<param name="COLOR" value="white">
The initial developer of this Java applet is SoftCorporation LLC. href="http://www.softcorporation.com/products/textbanner"
The webpage should be in the same directory as textbanner.jar file. You will have to change the ARCHIVE parameter if you prefer to save jar file in another directory. The description of applet parameters is in attached ReadMe.txt file.
Step 5: Crerate banner file. Banner file is a simple text file, which contains task description in similar to XML format. (You already have file "banner.txt" in zip package.) Here is an example of banner file:
<bnr bgcolor="#0070a0" speed="80"/>
<txt color="white" size="30">Enjoy this Java applet, as your gift from SoftCorporation LLC.</txt>
Create in notepad or another text editor file "banner.txt" and put this text in to it. (use mouse to cut it and paste). Upload the file in to the same directory where your web page is on a web site (or copy it to the directory on local computer). You will have to change the BNRFILE parameter if you prefer to save banner file in another directory. The description of banner elements and attributes is in attached ReadMe.txt file.
Step 6: Open in Java enabled browser the web page. You should see the same text in your page as in shown example.
