jQuery newsticker Demo Page

Some may have noticed, the demo page for the newsticker jQuery plugin has not been working in Internet Explorer 7. This is due to it being experimental code for allowing pausing, resuming and clearing of any active news ticker’s on the page. It should now work in IE7 (and hopefully IE6 as well).

There are a few additions to the plugin that should be of benefit. Set up the news ticker as usual:

var $news = $("#news").newsticker();

After doing so, you may pause, resume and clear it in your own functions. For example, clicking on elements with id’s pause, resume or clear will perform the relevant action:

$("#pause").click(
  function()
  {
    $.newsticker.pause($news);
    return false;
  }
);

$("#resume").click(
  function()
  {
    $.newsticker.resume($news);
    return false;
  }
);

$("#clear").click(
  function()
  {
    $.newsticker.clear($news);
    return false;
   }
);

The code available for download via jQuery SVN doesn’t have this functionality, but should work fine in IE7.
