    Scrolling idea: wrap it!

    I had an idea for scrolling text... how about continuous wrap-around?

    So... If you have:
    "This is a long song title that would scroll"

    It would go though something like:
    Code:
    This is a long song title
    his is a long song title t
    is is a long song title th
    s is a long song title tha
    ...
    itle that would scroll   T
    tle that would scroll   Th
    le that would scroll   Thi
    e that would scroll   This

    just set the scroll delay to 0 and it will be not delay...

    ??? I'm talking about a different way to scroll the text, not the speed of the scroll.

    he wants the beginning of the text to follow the end of the text before the text disappears I think..

    Right... it's just another idea versus scrolling first to last, pause, reset to first, repeat. This would be a continuous scroll.

    I implemented it on the device we manufacture here and I thought it was an interesting alternative.

    I see... I will look into it...

    At one point in some previous version if you set the scroll delay to zero I ran different code that did just this... it didn't go back to start and scroll again, but scrolled constantly...

    did you try?

    If not I see what you mean and maybe I will look into making it work this way if the scroll delay is zero...

    Currently if you select 0 as soon as it finishes scrolling it resets to the start of the title.

    Running 1.0.0 here would like this feature too it makes it a little bit more "polished" if you know what I mean, as would waiting for the song to scroll off the screen before resetting the display.
