How to add scrolling text to a BrightAuthor presentation.

You can use a Ticker zone in BrightAuthor to display scrolling text similar to a stock or news ticker (requires BrightAuthor version or later):

  1. Add a Ticker zone to your BrightAuthor presentation.
  2. Navigate to Edit > Playlist, select the Ticker zone, and click Zone Properties.
  3. Set the Text Appearance to Scrolling.
  4. Click OK to exit the Edit Zone window when finished.

This feature is also available in BrightScript via the roTextWidget object and JavaScript via the BSTicker object.

    I have found this, however, it is not clear how to add the text to this once the area has been set up. It is unclear how the text can be added into the ticker zone.
