     This is a full Text Fader Example allowing you to fade text by three (3) colors. It uses nine (9) scrollbars (3 for each color to fade by) allowing you to set the color of each of three (3) Color Labels. It has a great Fade Preview so you can see what the Faded Text looks like as you type it. It also has Bold, Italic, Underline and Strike Through options that can be changed real time (the Faded Text Preview updates as you change the options). There is also a very cool option that Dynamically updates the Faded Text Preview as you change or scroll any of the color scrollbars. If enabled, it allows you to change the colors dynamically and see what the Faded Text looks like instantly. It does, however, require a fairly fast PC with at least 256MBs of RAM. It doesn't slow down your PC or eat up memory, slower PCs just don't scroll the scrollbars smoothly and the RGB values jump in large increments instead of smoothly by 1 if the Dynamic Option is enabled. This is a perfect start for an AOL Chat Fader or any other type of Chat Fader.

Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
