scrollTo() and scrollby()

window.moveTo and window.resizeTo() work fine in Netscape 4.0, but I can't get subject functions to work.  Please send working example.

Thanks

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

scrollTo jumps the window directly to a location from where ever you are.
scrollBy scrolls the window a certain amount. For example,

If your at X: 25, Y: 50
scrollTo(100,100) would take you to X:100, Y:100
scrollBy(100,100) would take you to X:125, Y:150.

Here's an example of scrollTo. The syntax for scrollBy is the same.

I know the window will scroll vertically (Y) but I wented an example of how to scroll horizonally (X).  All the examples I have found use 0 for X, as above.  I would very much appreciate an example which will scroll "across" instead of just "up and down".

Many thanks.

Well, then. The only time that you would need to scroll to the side is when you have a large image. So write a page like this:
If you have a big picture, use it. Otherwise go into paint and make a new picture, something like 2000x2000 or something. Then scribble all over the picture so u can tell when it moves.

<HTML>
<BODY>
<A href="javascript:scrollBy(500,0)">Scroll Right</A>
<IMG SRC="bigimage (a picture bigger than your browser window)">
</BODY>
</HTML>
