Applets > Messengers > ConsoleMessage Help

Transform your webpage into a computer screen with this messenger.


Here you can specify the text alignment (left, right or centered text), the text size (in pixels) and the font. We recommend using left aligned text for this specific applet. This applet supports FFT files.

Entering messages and URLs

Make sure you have the same amount of URLs as you have messages. Enter each message in its own line. See the section Entering Text Or Files for more information.

Cursor blink delay and Letter delay

The letter delay is a setting that should be between 10-30. This is the delay between each appearing letter. The cursor blink delay is a delay affecting the cursor blinking (when standing still), put values between 1-3.

Message pause

This is the pause between each message.

Background image and background color

The background image will be used instead of the background color. Leave this field blank if you want to use the background color setting instead. Use the compression setting to decrease the SWF file size. The background color will affect the shadowing of each letter when they are turned away from you. We recommend setting this color to a color similar to the background image. If you do not have a background image, the effect will work fine.


Due to a limitation in Flash player, you can only have a maximum line size of 100 characters, that means you can display a text line with 100 letters at the most.

Version history

1.1 : Added support for the ActionScript LoadMovie() command, which means that the effect can now be inserted into Macromedia Flash FLA projects. You can now load other .swf files or disable the links by entering empty links.
