hi,

Is there a way to prevent mouse wheel scroll on iframes and overflow divs?

I find it a nuisance when i am scrolling down a page only to "get stuck" scrolling in a div or iframe when i want to keep scrolling down the page.

The type of solution i am looking for is one i can "program" into the web page i am coding. Solutions using html, css, javascript welcome. And that it will work for visitors visiting my created page.

Also, the page is an Intranet page that only requires Internet Explorer support. So a solution only supporting IE is acceptable.

thanks!

that is quite good and i think i can use them in some areas.

I do have another more complex implentation where i would be looking for a more basic solution if one exists before i try that.

Thank you for the suggestion and will certainly split some points for that.
