    DIV Tag Scroll Bars

    ethomasmcginnis Level 1
      I have a AP Div box that I want to hold more text than the vertical length has room for. I checked the box in the Positioning category for the overflow to scroll. This is all good. But is there any way to specify that I don't want the scroll bar bottom gray box?

      I can deal with the right scroll bar, because it's useful, but do I have to have that gray non-scroll bar on the bottom?
      Thanks.

          Try 'overflow-y' instead of 'overflow'. It's CSS 3, but many browsers
          already support it.

            Or even better than Micha's suggestion, let the content flow down the
            page and use the scrollbar the browser gives you.

              Awesome, Micha! That's exactly what I wanted! Thank you!

              Guess that's a case of code working better than the Dreamweaver check box.
              Thanks for the suggestion, Bonnie, but I have a background box that I want everything to stay within the height of. That's why I used an AP Div box to the height I wanted it to stay.

                >>I want
                >>I wanted

                Bonnie's suggestion is consistent with what your site visitor is likely to
                want.

                As always, a word to the wise is superfluous.

                  Change it from scroll to auto.
