hi all ^_^
im very very new to java, in fact the only reason i have gotten into it is because of a free java wizard i downloaded a few nights ago
with this java wizard i was able to make a banner that scrolled words from left to right and from right to left with a fade effect
i really liked this banner but because it was a shareware download, its run out of free time, so what i'd like to know is,
how would i make something like this?
any help would be great, please remember im a complete n00b, i only downloaded the softwear to make java last night
thanks for your time
Rei ^_^

Welcome to JavaRanch, Rei Sorrel!
The banner you created was likely an Applet. So, when you start to get into the details, you might want to mosey on over to the Applets forum. In the mean time...
Here is a list of free on-line Java tutorials and books that I have found useful:
  • Sun's Java Tutorial
  • Introduction to Computer Science using Java by Bradley Kjell
  • Introduction to Programming Using Java by David J. Eck
  • Dick Baldwin's Java Programming Tutorials
  • Interactive Programming In Java by Lynn Andrea Stein
  • Bruce Eckel's Thinking In Java

  • [How To Ask Good Questions] [JavaRanch FAQ Wiki] [JavaRanch Radio]
    I agree. Here's the link:
