How to make RSS feed reader or is that somewhere allready?
Check out the RSS feed reader here: perfectabstractions.com/blog … r-ignition
Thanks. I will test it…
Ok, It´s working fine.
Is there any possibility to do horizontal rolling feature? I mean it rolls news headers like in the TV news?
I am building Infomonitor software
You could try using an html tag that’d do the kind of ‘news ticker’ scrolling you want
Excellent idea! Except isn’t supported in Swing.

Ah well in that case “nevermind, nothing to see here, move along”
I’m fairly new to ignition so I didn’t realize the ‘components take/play nice with HTML’ functionality had limitations like that
No worries, my friend! Swing has pretty fair HTML support, but some of the more esoteric features are missing.
Take a look at this thread for alternatives.
Not a bad solution, I used that method (rolling substrings on a timer) to do a marquee on a small assignment in college but found it a little resource hungry when used on something like an rss feed which is regularly getting things pruned and appended.
granted that was over a decade ago, so it may not make a noticeable difference anymore…
