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**

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..
