    Hey all,

    I'm in this Java class and need to program an app or applet that lets the user create a moving banner on a new window or web page. The user can modify the size of text (that is on the banner), the text inside the banner, and the speed in which the banner moves.

    I have a few problems:

    1) which java element lets me change the speed of the moving banner?
    2) how do i display the banner on a new window/web page. which should i use? window or web page? which one is easier.
    3) Should I use JTextArea or PaintPanel element for the new window to display the banner?

    Does your input have to use java controls? Or can the user input be commandline parameters or via an HTML form?
