Correction - you are using Asp.Net - a big difference from Asp

Well get ready to learn JavaScript and CSS as well!

Visual Basic.Net is used for handling server side events (like when a
user clicks a asp:Button). For client-side functionality you have to
use a client-side script to get the desired behavior. I also mention
CSS because many implementations will probably modify the style
attributes of the element to be scrolled.

Instead of writing a solution for you here I'll send you to google:

Much as it pains me to suggest it, have you tried looking at the Marquee
HTML element?

It's not an official part of the HTML standard, but I think most browsers do
support it. Personally I think it's horrible but it might do what you want
and is very easy to use.
