hi,
can you plz tell me how to use marquee in vb6

Hi,

u cannot directly use the available Marquee control, instead i will give the option to Create using StatusBar Control.
Place a Timer Control on the form and set its interval=500

Declare these Variables on top of form:
Dim MySlNo As Integer
Const Mystr As String = "THIS IS MY MARQUEE"
 
'this code in timer1_timer Event:
 
Private Sub Timer1_Timer()
    MyID = MyID + 1
    If MyID >= Len(Mystr) Then MyID = 0
    Status.Panels(1).text = Mid(Mystr, MyID)
End Sub
