I have written about making a News Ticker before but it looks like the code is not working anymore so why not make something better. News tickers are a great way to show a lot of information in a small space and they look much better than an annoucements web part. For this example I established a few ground rules.
- Content will be pulled from a custom SharePoint list.
- When clicked the items will open in a dialog window
- The ticker will pause on hover and have controls so users can scroll through the news items
