Is it possible to have the channel topic scroll in the top bar of the channel window (topicbar?)? Would someone be kind enough to make a small script to do this.

Thanks

No it isn't possible to have the topic scrolled in the channel titlebar, but with the main mIRC titlebar it can.

On the channel's titlebar? Really?

I didn't know you could add to the channel titlebar. Learn something new every day.

You would have to constantly update the titlebar with what you want. Doing that, you can make it appear to scroll by just changing the text in it in a specific way.

hmmm maybe i wasnt paying enough attention, im sure the topic shows up in the blue bar of the channel window, so my idea to scroll it was to just change the topic, so it appears to be scrolling, mahahaha can you amagine how fast everyones gonna get pissed with that!

I believe it would probably all scroll, if one word scrolls to the right, the word to the right of that would get pushed along.

But Dave was right, you'd get flooded.

you could use a series of alias for the main mIRC titlebar
Code:
movetitle {
  unset %place
  var %movetext = $?="Input Text"
  var %lentext = $len(%movetext)
  settimer %lentext $replace(%movetext,$chr(32),_)
}
settimer {
  inc %place
  if (%place > $1) { %place = 1 }
  titlebar $network $mid($2-,%place,$1) $+ $str(_,%place) $fulldate
  resettimer $1-
}
resettimer { .timer_we_go 1 1 settimer $1- }

It tends to "wiggle" a bit because the font is a variable width, but it isnt too bad
