    Scrolling Stats

    My company would like to render usage of our product much in our lobby. They would like it rendered much like Google does with their live query in their lobby.

    Here is an example if you have never seen it:

    My first thought is that Ajax would be the right approach for this. I used the following tutorial to guide me in the right direction:

    I changed the content a little to suit my needs. I am basically using php to query mySQL for the last twenty rows in a table. The scrolling seems to work alright, but I cannot seem to get the same effect. Mainly it is the paused shift to add new content is what I am having trouble with.

    Any advice would be helpful.

    Thank you.

    Welcome to DevX

    Specifically what effect are you going for?

    Thank you for replying. The effect that I am going for is the slight pause as a new line is inserted at the bottom as is done in Google's live query page that they use. My page has the appearance of scrolling because the updater request is just refreshing the page and the results of the new query populating the page giving the illusion of the previous results scrolling up the page. I thought that this might be achieved using the insertion class, but the effect was not much different. I thought about using something like tail and outputting the results, but I was hoping for something a little more elegant.
