Hello,

I'm trying to turn off the default (right-hand side) scrollbar for the infowindow, which i'm told is  usually configured within CSS. My CSS only has the following reference to the InfoWindow:

#infowindow {
        font-size:10pt;
        min-height: 100%;
        color: #2E2E2E;

}

    .iwstyle {font-size:10pt;}

So what is it that i'm missing?

Please note that i have added a custom scrollbar for a div that i have placed within the InfoWindow, and this i wish to preserve.

Many thanks

From what you've said, i thought perhaps

overflow: hidden;

..might work but it didn't. Please see the attached screenshot - i'm trying to remove the scrollbar on the right.

hmm well the one on the right is appearing because you have too much text on the left text area.

if you set the height of the inner div to be smaller than that outer div then it will disappear.

i dont know what the ID is for the outer container but say it was called - outerDiv then set its height to something specific say 300px with overflow hidden; then the inner div just needs a fixed height which is smaller so maybe 280px; the inner div will scroll and the outer div scrollbar shouldnt be needed.
