Controlling HTML SELECT Vertical Scroll Bars

Sep 18, 2007

The problem I'm trying to solve is that the
designer would like to limit the total number of entires shown when
you click on the drop-down arrow of a select box. I'm starting to
think that this isn't possible.

I've tried the following with no luck:

- Setting the height attribute on the select element
- Setting a style height for the select attribute
- Modifying the same through Javascript
- Setting the style overflow-y to scroll
- Setting the size of the select element

At some point in my browsing someone claimed that the vertical scroll
bars are controlled by the OS/Browser and there are no ways to change
this using JS or CSS. That the magic number of IE is 30 entries before
the vertical scroll bar shows up.

Detecting Scroll-bars On DIV

Jul 22, 2004

I having a wrapper DIV (certain width say 400px) and i have some child DIVS which i want to add to it. And i want it to have a maximum height of 600px say.

I DONT want the wrapper DIV to have vertical scroll bars so i would like to add as many child DIVS (which contain text of indiscriminant length) until i can somehow detect that the wrapper has overflowed (ie the scrollbars have been implemented !) if it has then remove the last one and dynmically create a new DIV, and continue the cyclw until exhausted of child DIVS.

Datagrid That Uses Scroll Bars ?

Feb 19, 2010

I am looking for a Javascript Datagrid that will populate based on database driven data, but also allows the data in the list to scroll sepereately from the Header. This is so I can allow users to sort data without making another database call on each sort.

For instance, I have used this Javascript and it looks and works great, except the header scrolls with the data....

[url]

That works great with dynamic database data....but the header dissapears when using a scroll bar.

I am looking for something that works like this, but is not ajax and does not query the database with each sort. [url]

See how the data scrolls, but the header stays put? The pagination onthat example is not needed and in fact I would rather it didn't have that capability.

I want that functionality, but with Javascript.

Reverse Scroll Bars For Chatroom

Jul 15, 2009

I have created this chatroom using php and scriptaculous but I am stuck with a tiny issue which I believe is only solvable using Javascript.

I have attached 2 screen shots. 1.jpg is what I get at the moment and 2.jpg is what I want to get.

As you see when somebody sends message and the messages exceed pages size, the scroll bars appear, I need the scroll bar to be the oposite direction (down to top) like yahoo or msn or any other chat room.

No Scroll Bars Showing Up In Any Browser

Dec 2, 2009

I made this webpage. It runs with a simple javascript function that changes the content in the window when you click on the menu buttons. the only problem is there are no vertical scroll bars when viewed in any browser. There seems to be a place for them but no actual scroll bar. I tried modifying the color and such with cs but it didn't change anything.

The site: [url]

Here is all the code starting with the html, then the css, and the two javascript pages

Magnifier Using CSS - Scroll Bars In Safari ?

Sep 11, 2011

I have written a magnifier (using both CSS and JavaScript), and it appears to work OK in the four browsers I have tested (IE9, FF3.5.7, Safari 5.1, and Opera 11.51).

However, Safari annoyingly puts in scroll bars when you are magnifying the picture.

I can get rid of this by making the ctrlDiv offset as hidden, but then this removes the bottom scroll bar completely in all browsers (not really useful if the document is bigger than the browser window).

I have read about putting the image as a background image of another element, but cannot for the life of me get this to work at all.

Also, the functions to return the absolute position of elements (and mouse pointer) does not work if the document has a margin (i.e. width:1216px;margin:auto) - but I can work around this at the moment.

Anyway, the complete code is at [url](it was easier to stick it there and post a link than to post the code here).

Chat Program - Controlling Scroll Of DIV

Feb 26, 2010

I am trying to make a chat program, and now I want the div to scroll down (entirely down), if the scroll bar already is at the bottom, when the text changes. So Here is the test page. Notice the little debugging area at the bottom. You see that when you scroll the DIV (with message story) entirely down, the scrollTop and scrollHeight does not match, so how, exactly, do I check if the scroll is at the bottom? Notice that if the server is down, or if you don't see what I am explaining, try to refresh the page, or wait a little and then refresh.

Mar 1, 2011

Is there a way to use jquery to detect any device with a touch screen?

Im using the jscrollpane but the handles drag in the wrong direction on touch screens like the ipad (in my opinion). As you can drag the main content (which works in the correct way), I want to hide the scroll bars if the device is a touch screen.

Iframe Scrolling - Scroll Bars Automatically Appear When Needed Or Put Them There Permanently

Aug 13, 2009

I know that iframes can be set to have scroll bars automatically apear when needed or put them there permanantly. However, I would like to have a Javascript slider on the topmost page scroll the iframe. It was possible to make a link on the topmost page change the content of the iframe by putting the iframe name in the link's target. Is this possible with a slider? I ask this because some of the content inside the iframe is on external pages so obviously we can't add the scroll bar there.

JQuery :: Disable Vertical Scroll ONLY?

Jul 11, 2011

I'm using Jquery to power my horizontal scrolling portfolio site.[URL] I have a problem that on a smaller browser window elements becomeverticalscroll-ableand id rather it force you tore-sizerather then break the design. Using the basic CSS Overflow:Hiddenisn'tan option because it then sticks the horizontal scrollbar wherever the end of your page loads at, making anuglybar across the middle of largerresolutionscreens. I used a mootools approach thatremovesonly one of the scrollbars, but mootoolsdoesn'tplay nice with jquery in this fix.

Has anyone tried to attempt this? or am I just banging my head against a problem andover complicatingthis? I could always just make the page elements smaller, but liking my big photo presentation.

Oh and I dont mind about compatibility with IE6, im in the graphic design business, all the people im showing this too have a more modern browser or use the 64-bit IE.

Restore Vertical Scroll Bar Position?

Sep 22, 2010

Not sure if this is a browser feature kind of thing, or if it can be done with a script.

I'm looking at my page: www.mysite.com/index.php?start=0

I scroll to the bottom of the page with the vertical scroll bar, and then click the pagation link to start on page 2, record #50: www.mysite.com/index.php?start=50

Of course, the vertical scroll bar jumps back to the top of my page.

Is there a way to make it remember that the scroll bar was at the bottom (or in the middle)?

Code For A Vertical Slider - Scroll Text On A Page

Sep 27, 2011

I was wondering if there is a javaScript code for a vertical slider. Basically, I'm presenting a menu, that needs to fit in a certain amount of space and it is much taller than the space allotted.

I was going to use an iframe, but I thought that there might be some JavaScript I could use that would be more elegant. I just need to scroll text on a page.

Vertical Scrollbar And Sliding - Move The Scroll Bar On The Right To The Bottom And Then Click On Description Again

Mar 7, 2010

The link is here [URL] Click on description. Move the scroll bar on the right to the bottom and then click on description again. Instead of the thumbnails scrolling up to hide the description, the main image and header move down. Any tips on addressing this. My brains are a bit frazzled at the moment. Do I need to fix the vertical scroll position somehow. What properties do I need to be looking at? (Note : I'm currently animating the height property of the description box.) Second question. I did have auto margins in the wrapper centering the page. When you click on description it causes the scrollbar on the right to appear, which shifts the page over to the left. I've since fixed the margin, but again is there a way around this so that I can center the page again?

URL Links - Controlling HTML Page Opening Query

Sep 21, 2011

I have url links in an Access Database which open different info screens depending on the record. I want to include some code in the html which isn't blocked by browsers, but restricts the html code to an initial window of approx 800x600, but can be resized, but importantly the database screen doesn't 'get lost' underneath the browser window.
