Hi,
I have a WEB site (WEB application) that is a table of boxes (<table><tr><td>...)
In several boxes there are "grig tables" that may have many lines.
I don't want the boxes to expand so I set it as
obj.style.overflow='auto';
and
obj.style.hieght=155;

I works very weel in IE - when there are more lines then it can hold it adds a vertical scrollbar.
But in Chrome (and FireFox) it does not add the scrollbar and expands the box height.

you need to give overflow:scroll

if doesn't work, then also try adding
overflow-x:scroll
overflow-y:scroll

I checked it with firburg (for firefox) and what I see that although I do
obj.style.height=155;
the width="100%".
So I understand that this is not the way to set the height.

check for the typo here, it should be
obj.style.height=155;

I don't see any difference between what I wrote and what you wrote.
I don't see any typo.

hmm..i was referring to what you wrote in original question.

If you are setting the height to a cell or a row of a table you can do it by
obj.setAttribute("height", "155px");

The expert showed this in the example but to emphasize your height needs units.  Most likely pixels.  E.g.obj.style.height = 155px;bol
