    hey look I'm back again :eek: the bad penny returns :lol:

    got a little problem, trying to set up a site without using frames, but keeping the same effects.

    bit I am working on now is to get the test area to scroll over a background pic. background pic i can do, presumably the 'fixed' will keep it in place as well in tables as in layers....I hope.

    however how do u get the nested table to stay fixed in size and scroll the text with the cell rather than enlarging the cell to fit the text and thereby losing the bgpic effect.....................hope this makes sense :?

    cheers u bright ppl

    hi martin,

    I'm not sure what your asking here,

    You will not be able to add a scrollbar to a table. However, you can add a scroll bar to a <div> inside a table. here is an example -

    HTML:
    <div style="background: #ffffff; overflow: auto; width:200px; height:150px;">INSERT YOUR CONTENT....IT CAN HAVE ANY HTML YOU WANT!!! </div>
    I've attached a zip file with a couple of examples one is the same as the above but with more text and the second is a guess at what your trying to achieve. These examples are very basic and can be modified if needed.


    I've not done anything with the background as I'm not sure if this is the result your looking for.
    HTH :D

    To get the .ZIP file mentioned above, in Si's post there is a grid, to the right of the grid there is a download icon, simply click on it and the download will comence (once you tell it where you want to save it).

    HTH

    EDIT

    Just tried it myself and it does'nt work LOL. Siiiiiiii!!!!!!!!!!

    Hi SimonV

    Script is working fine n dandy

    only diff from my frames is the background pic is split in 2 by a scroll bar as it is spread over 2 cells in the nested table. - needed the 2 cells so that the text was in the right place...did the same with the frame as well-.

    the test page is at http://www.sirdragon.btinternet.co.uk/noframesventure/products.htm

    cheers for your help SimonV catch you next time :D
