All this can be edited to give another dimension and even create sharp angles at the corners. The margin top and left are the option to use when you want to center the widget in the stage.
To browse the news we added two big arrows located on both sides of the widget. The normal and over color of the arrows can be set in the next group of parameters.
2009 XML Panel News Ticker is using the grouping of news for a smooth transition. By default a group is set to 3 news. In the next set of settings the width and top/left padding of a single news can be customized from XML. Each news it would display a photo thumbnail. The thumbs width, height, border size and color ca by edited from xml.
Attention: For the case when the number of news it would be changed to a different number than 3, the height of the widget has to be calculated related to the number of news and height of news.
widgetHeight = newsNumPerGroup * singleNewsHeightPanel1
The first panel doesn't allow much content. For this particular case we created title and description chars limitation. By default the title is set to 50 and description to 130. Both can be edited to a number more suitable for your needs.
The next group of settings contain the options for the second panel. Background color of the second panel is editable from xml. Edit the content padding for the description (content text), change the size of the photo (thumb), edit the photo's border width and color. By default the photo is 165x132px.
To return from second panel to first we added a close button. The button is customizable and following parameters can be edited: radius, background, border, cross normal and over color.
To be able to read whole description we added a scroll bar. The following settings are possible to scroll bar: scroll bar width and color, button width, height, normal and over color.
Next group of parameters are to set some details of the second panel like: title color, color of the line under the title, date and description color.
The navigation on the second panel can be done in two ways: the left and right big arrows located on the side of the widget, or by clicking on the news displaying in the bottom ticker. Following parameters can be edited for the ticker: background color, height and corner radius. The news title corner radius, title margin, news separator line width and color are settable from xml. For reader convenience the ticker's scroll speed is settable from xml.
