is there a way when using IFrames to specify if you want horizontal scrolling or vertical scrolling instead of having them both. if i choose scrolling=yes then i get a vertical scroll bar to accompany the long text.

if scrolling is=auto then it puts horizontal scrollbar at the bottom (fade out version) even if the text is 3 lines long. can anything be done about that?

Well, I never had to specify what scrolling I wanted. As long I as put in the width and height, a vertical scroll would appear as needed.

the only time i've specified which scroll is with divs. and auto brings
up whichever is needed. maybe try controlling the page with css...

it's just a frame... the page itself that's nested in it, is where the scroll is
created. there's no scrollbar in the "frame" itself, it's just the container.

which is why you apply the css to the page that will appear in the frame.



i could be wrong... tho. maybe there's a way to make a page not scroll
one way or the other. but it will be the page, not the frame.




are you sure you're using iframes?

ditto what potent said, you should be trying to set the scrollers on the contained page. But you should really just be getting a vertical scroller unless your page is too wide.

Also, are you sure you <b>want</b> to use iframes? :wink:
