Hi all,
Need some help with this. If we go to any site with very less contents on the page -- example www.google.com ..
if we see.. we can see the grey vertical scrollbars even when it is not active because all contents can easily come on half a page.
no horizontal scollbar is there though..

if we see in netscape.. no scrollbars appear at all for small pages..

I want to get rid off grey inactive scrollbars from IE.. until it is needed...

I would really appreciate if you can help me with this..

Regards

no background at all.. I just was using stylesheets.. but i took that also out..


still I can see the grey inactive scrollbar..

just if you go to
www.google.com

and maximize your screen.. to get IE on the full screen.. i think u'll able to see the vertical scrollbar while there is not much contents on the page..

Hi,
The contents on the screen on google.com is due t o the content on the screen which is more than the content of the that page.
The navigators' screen is w/o scroll bars b'cos
the screen size is made large by folding the menus.
to get rid of the scroll bars in IE
1) goto http://google.com and
2) press F11 ( function key)

and presto. **NO SCROLL BAR**

Will your db performance match your db growth?

In Percona’s white paper “Performance at Scale: Keeping Your Database on Its Toes,” we take a high-level approach to what you need to think about when planning for database scalability.

in your html you should go to the page which has your frames.  add some of the following to it...  for example...
<FRAMESET ROWS="23%,81%">
<FRAME SRC="top.htm" NAME="top" SCROLLING="NO">
<FRAMESET COLS="17%,85%">
<FRAME SRC="side.htm" NAME="side" SCROLLING="YES">
<FRAME SRC="yavin4.htm" NAME="page">

if you have scrolling to yes you will get the bars, if you set it to no you wont.

Oops red117..
Just a question.. that was simply a great answer.. but another problem here is coming.. If I set scrollbar = "NO".. I never get my scrollbar back.. even when it is needed..

Hope you can help me with this too.. Regards

hmmm that is a good one,
let me ponder here for a sec..
are you writing straight code? or are you using a program to do it?  if you are using a program, may i suggest you use HoTMetaL pro.  it is excellent, not having the program in front of me to take a look, i believe that if you set it to no, it will not put them there unless the page extends too far and it is necessary to have them.  i think, i wont be home until saturday now as i am leaving but if you dont have an answer by then i will look and write back to you then. but try that!!!

hope it helps..
