HMarqueeCaption is a Metrowerks PowerPlant–inherited class that displays a horizontally scrolling (from right to left) "marquee" of text, similar in appearance to the scrolling JavaScript marquee that you often see across the bottom of Web browser windows. Features include offscreen GWorlds for smooth scrolling text, support for an amount of text limited only by available memory, and modifier keys to alter scrolling behavior (you can increase scrolling speed, scroll left to right, pause scrolling, and so on). HMarqueeCaption can be used in About boxes for scrolling credits, in JavaScript implementations for the scrolling caption, in applications that need ticker tape–style animation, or anywhere a marquee-style sign and animation is desired.
