Hi there,
I am creating an html page. I have a table, and in one of them i have enabled the scrollbar using
<div style="width:600px;height:400px;overflow:auto;">
However i would like to show the scrollbar and enable it only when the mouse is over that cell.
Anyone know how to do that in javascript?

try this:

<script language='javascript'>

function mouseover_divOne()
{
      document.getElementById('divOne').style.overflow='scroll';
}
function mouseout_divOne()
{
      document.getElementById('divOne').style.overflow='auto';
}

</script>

<div
id='divOne'
style="width:600px;height:400px;overflow:auto;"
onmouseover='mouseover_divOne();'
onmouseout='mouseout_divOne();'
>cell</div>

I dont get point (a)
Point (b) To hide horizontal scroll bar
<script language='javascript'>

function mouseover_divOne()
{
      document.getElementById('divOne').style.overflowY='scroll';
}
function mouseout_divOne()
{
      document.getElementById('divOne').style.overflowY='auto';
}

</script>

<div
id='divOne'
style="width:600px;height:400px;overflow-y:auto;"
onmouseover='mouseover_divOne();'
onmouseout='mouseout_divOne();'
>cell</div>
