Let's understand, If you want to add scrolling text in your application then we have to add marquee tag in our application.

Before we proceed in this post, we have to know about the MARQUEE tag.

How to Add Dynamic Marquee in Oracle APEX?

Dynamic Marquee means we will fetch some values from the database and pass that value to the marquee tag. For this implementation, you should some knowledge for creating PL/SQL Dynamic Content Region in Oracle APEX.

If you have familiar with the PL/SQL dynamic content region then you can easily understand this post.

Please Follow the below points:-

Step 1:- Create a PL/SQL Dynamic Content Region with the below code.

  sep VARCHAR2(20): = NULL; 
  CURSOR data IS 
    SELECT 'Oracle Apex Tutorials By Javainhand' MESSAGE 
    FROM   dual; 

  htp.p('<div class="marquee">'); 
  htp.p(' <div class="marquee-text">'); 
  FOR c1 IN data 
    htp.p( '<a href="https://www.javainhand.com/">' 
    || sep 
    || c1.message 
    || '</a >' ); 
  htp.p('</div >'); 

I am fetching the value from dual table. You can fetch value from your table instead of dual table. Now save your page and run that page.

Step 2:- Now, You have to add the below JavaScript code to your page Function and Global Declaration Section.

var marquee = $('div.marquee');
var go = true;
function () {
go = false;
function () {
go = true;
marquee.each(function () {
var mar = $(this),
indent = mar.width();
mar.marquee = function () {
if (go) {
mar.css('text-indent', indent);
if (indent < -1 * mar.children('div.marquee-text').width()) {
indent = mar.width();
mar.data('interval', setInterval(mar.marquee, 1000 / 60));

Step 3:- Add the below CSS code to your page inline section.

@media only screen and (max-width: 640px) {
 div.marquee {
  font-size: 1.5rem;
  padding: 0;

div.marquee {
 white-space: no-wrap;
 font-size: 2.5rem;
 padding: 10px;
 background: #E5EFF8;
 overflow: hidden;

div.marquee>div.marquee-text {
 white-space: nowrap;
 display: inline;
 width: auto;
