Proposal for "ScrollingLabel"

» Metadata » Status
» Description
The main goal of this package is to provide a quick and easy means of creating a gtk widget which displays text that scrolls across the visible area of the widget. The package would make it it simple to create scrolling labels by encapsulating the methods that are needed for the basic functionality as well as more complex features such as pausing the scroll, adjusting the speed, and connecting other signals. It would make it easy by creating a simple API for setting up the label and changing settings on the fly.

List of features:
* Simple API
* Allow for text to scroll left to right, right to left, or bounce back and forth inside the viewable space
* Control speed of scrolling text
* Control size of viewable area
* Built-in methods to start, stop, pause and unpause scroll that can be connected to most events
* Change the text on the fly
