reloadableScrollingText for titles
« on: July 18, 2017, 12:07:06 PM »
I have my theme set up to display game titles as reloadableScrollingText elements. This is great for displaying overly long titles in full but in the case of shorter names ( e.g Contra (USA) ) it looks really unnecessary and out of place.

I'm wondering if it's possible to display these titles as regular, non-scrolling text when they fit within the maxWidth defined by the layout, but scrolling text when they exceed it.

Not yet, but seeing as I did the same for vertical scrolling text I guess it makes sense to do so. I'll have a closer look at the code to see what I can do.

Also, is there any chance that we could get a scrollingText attribute which causes the text to loop and continuously scroll, rather than disappearing and then reappearing suddenly?

Was this added? I'd really love to have it.
