April 2024 - This site, and Kamaelia are being updated. There is significant work needed, and PRs are welcome.


For examples and more explanations, see the module level docs.

class Ticker(Axon.Component.component)

Ticker(...) -> new Ticker component.

A pygame based component that displays incoming text as a ticker.

Keyword arguments (all optional):

NOTE: render_left and render_top currently behave incorrectly if not set to 1



Methods defined here


You should be using the inbox/outbox interface, not these methods (except construction). This documentation is designed as a roadmap as to their functionalilty for maintainers and new component developers.

__init__(self, **argd)

x.__init__(...) initializes x; see x.__class__.__doc__ for signature


Clears the ticker of any existing text.



Main loop.

renderBorder(self, display)

Draws a rectangle to form the 'border' of the ticker

requestDisplay(self, **argd)

Generator. Gets a display surface from the Pygame Display service.

Makes the request, then yields 1 until a display surface is returned.

waitBox(self, boxname)

Generator. yields 1 until data ready on the named inbox.


Got a problem with the documentation? Something unclear that could be clearer? Want to help improve it? Constructive criticism is very welcome - especially if you can suggest a better rewording!

Please leave you feedback here in reply to the documentation thread in the Kamaelia blog.
