How do I create a repeater with fixed size that has scrollbars?

I would like to embed a repeater in my page that is 600x400. If the size of the repeater is greater than the defined size I would like scrollbars to appear.

Easiest way would be to wrap the repeater in a div with the overflow set in css:

<div style="width:600px; height:400px; overflow:scroll;">

        <asp:Repeater ID="Repeater1" runat="server"></asp:Repeater>

</div>

Note that the div could also be set in the repeaters HeaderTemplate and FooterTemplate, but then it won't show up at all if the repeater doesn't have ANY data.

Is there a way to get it to just pop up scrollbars for the vertical?

Try overflow:auto; instead of scroll.

Or if you are okay with using the Panels. I have been using it all along.

<asp:Panel ID="pnlContainer" runat="Server" Width="100%" Height="300px" ScrollBars="Auto">
            <asp:Repeater.................................... />
</asp:panel>
