Advanced Typewriter Text Effect

Documentation

Step 2 - Create the Data File

The Advanced Typewriter Text Effect software reads all the messages to be displayed from a Plain Text File. If you look at the applet parameters from the previous section you will see that one of them is,

<param name="dataURL" value="data.txt">

Please Note: File names are case sensitive ie. "data.txt" is not the same as "Data.txt".

This specifies the name and location of the data file. In this case the filename is 'data.txt' and is to be found in the current directory (ie. that of your web page).

The next step is to add your messages to the data file in the sequence you wish them to be displayed. Each message should be enclosed between a beginning messages tag <MESSAGE> and an ending </MESSAGE> tag. For example if you want the message "This is the first message" to be displayed then you would add,

<MESSAGE>
This is the first message
</MESSAGE>

A message can also be multi-line by simply adding the message on different lines, for example,

<MESSAGE>
This is the first message
this is message 2
and here is line 3
</MESSAGE>

In addition you can certain properties of each message by adding special tags (if these are not present then the default values are used from the Applet PARAM tags). The following message has all the possible properties set,

<MESSAGE>
<FONT Arial,N,12>
<URL http://www.jpowered.com/,jpowered>
<COLOR 0,0,255>
<PAUSE 2>
<ALIGN LEFT>
This is the first message
this is message 2
and here is line 3
</MESSAGE>

Each of these has the following effect,

Font
This tag specifies the Font for this message
eg. <FONT Arial,N,12>
for further information on defining fonts click here.

Color
Specifies the text color for this message
eg. <COLOR 0,0,255>
for further information on defining colors click here.

Pause Time
Specifies the amount of time (in seconds) to pause the fading effect when the message has reached it's color value.
e.g <PAUSE 2>

Alignment
Specifies whether the message is to be aligned to the left, center or right.
eg. <ALIGN LEFT>
Valid values are "Left", "Right" or "Center".

URL Link
Specifies the URL HyperLink to be executed when the visitor clicks the message. This tag has 2 components seperated by a comma. The first component is the URL of the page you wish to link to and the second component is the target frame or window you wish that page to be displayed in. If the target element is not present then the page will be displayed in the current browser window.
eg. <URL http://www.jpowered.com/,jpowered>
