The renderlet:TICKER is a control which renders an HTML and allows to scroll it.
Depending on what you want to display, you have two alternatives:
1). If you always have the same HTML to display on the page, then we advise you to use the /html option to configure this control.
For example, if you want to make a pub to your clients, then you will have a flash file for each client, and this pub will scroll into a box placed into your page.
2). If you have an HTML which can change from day to day, then we advise you to use the /childs option.
For example, when you want to display the latest 5 news from your site, you will use a /datasource object to define the data placed onto your box.
Bellow, is presented a visual example of how works each type of renderlet:TICKER.
So, there are four types of ticker:
1). on vertical mode, from the top to the bottom (1st example)
2). on horizontal mode, from the left to right (2nd example)
3). on horizontal mode, from the right to left (3rd example)
4). on vertical mode, from the bottom to top (4th example)
