    Text Blitter - Start scroller from right-hand side

    How do you get the scrolling text (using Text Blitter) to start off at the right hand side and then scroll into view? At the moment the text starts flush at the left-hand side and scrolls off. I've tried changing the left margin to equal the right-hand side and that does the trick, but then as soon as the last character passes this margin, the remaining text on screen suddenly disappears instead of scrolling off the left. I've also tried adding spaces in front of the text but that leaves a huge gap (to wait) before the actual text scrolls into view again.

    Has anybody done this? and if so how? Any help would be appreciated.

    Re: Text Blitter - Start scroller from right-hand side

    Also, I'm using various buttons to change the text of the scroller. How do you 'restart' the scroller after changing text? At the moment, when the text changes it keeps it's position, for example, if the text for one button is halfway through, then (when switching) text 2 will also be halfway through instead of starting from the beginning.

    Again, any help appreciated.

    I've tried all sorts to get the text to start at the right but nothings working. It's getting to be a bit of a bugger as that's the only thing left I need to do! LOL!

    Re: Text Blitter - Start scroller from right-hand side

    Hi N_K2,

    I'm using the Cos scroller animation which has these settings:

    Speed: Speed of over all scroller
    X Speed: plus number = move left to right, negative number - move right to left.
    Freq: How quick the letters will move up / down
    Height: The height which the letters will move up

    I tried negative numbers in all of them but couldn't get it to start at the right, nor restart the scroller after a button has been pressed.

    I tried that early on but it aligned the end of the text to the left-hand side, so you got something like this:

    -------------------------------------
    |LE CLICK AGAIN TO EXIT FULL SCREEN.|
    -------------------------------------

    But now it starts it at the right, like I wanted it! Thanks neat_Killer2! All I need now is to be able to restart the text at the right when changing the text, any ideas?

    That's a bugger...

    I've fired of an email to the creator stating the problem and will put the solution here, if there is one. Thanks for all your help NK.
