  • 1844

The <marquee> tag in HTML is used to scroll the text across the website screen. We can set its various attributes according to the requirement of the application.

Direction: Allows setting the direction of the marquee box to, right- to-left, left-to-right, up-to-down or down-to-up.

Bgcolor: Used for setting the background color of the marquee.

Loop: Sets the number of times the marquee should loop its text. Loops are counted according to the number of times the text reaches the each end of the marquee.

Width: Sets the width of the marquee. By default, the width of the marquee is 100%.

Scrollamount: This indicates the total number of pixels the text travels between the frames. A Scrollamount 1 indicates the slowest scroll speed.

Scrolldelay: This indicates the number of milliseconds the frame would last. A Scrolldelay of 1000 indicates that the frame would last for one thousand milliseconds or more precisely one second.

HTML Code:



    <div style="width: 400px; height: 400px;">

        <font size="4" face="monotype coursiva" color="blue">

            <marquee width="100%" behavior="SCROLL" direction="RIGHT" bgcolor="pink">I am the best person in the world.</marquee>
