Ive been trying to get a Div to load, and scroll to the bottom. The idea is to have a list of transactions, and have the div scroll to the bottom.

I found an article at 'http://radio.javaranch.com/pascarello/2005/12/14/1134573598403.html', and tried to put it in the onload of the div, but it doesnt scroll to the bottom. It doesnt produce any errors, just doenst work :-(

Any idea what Im doing wrong?

Thanks in advance!!!


<div id="divTransList" style="width:100%; height:150px; overflow:auto;" onload="javascript: var objDiv = document.getElementById('divTransList'); objDiv.scrollTop = objDiv.scrollHeight;">
        hello</br>hello</br>hello</br>hello</br>hello</br>hello</br>hello</br>hello</br>hello</br>hello</br>hello</br>hello</br>hello</br>hello</br>hello</br>hello</br>hello</br>hello</br>hello</br>hello</br>hello</br>hello</br>hello</br>hello</br>hello</br>hello</br>hello</br>hello</br>hello</br>hello</br>hello</br>hello</br>hello</br>hello</br>
    </div>

One, you have a syntax error "" should be typed "" and two anchor points use the name attribute, check out the following code:
<div id="divTransList" name="divTransList" style="width:100%; height:150px; overflow:auto;">

hello<br />hello<br />hello<br />hello<br />hello<br />hello<br />hello<br />hello<br />hello<br />hello<br />hello<br />hello<br />hello<br />hello<br />hello<br />hello<br />hello<br />hello<br />hello<br />hello<br />hello<br />hello<br />hello<br />hello<br />hello<br />hello<br />hello<br />hello<br />hello<br />hello<br />hello<br />hello<br />hello<br />hello<br />

</div>

<script type="text/javascript">
window.onload= function event(onload) {window.location = "#divTransList"};
</script>

put the script in a function and call it after the div loads.

It takes br and interpretes it as real code, the point is you have mistyped it.

I'm sure this is what you want:
<div id="divTransList" name="divTransList" style="width:100%; height:150px; overflow:auto;">

</div>

<script type="text/javascript">
function addTimeToDIV () {
	objDiv= document.getElementById('divTransList');
	// Your code goes here
	objDiv.innerHTML += new Date().getTime() + "<br />";
	// and ends here
	objDiv.scrollTop= objDiv.scrollHeight;
}

setInterval ("addTimeToDIV()", 500 );
</script>

if you only want the div to jump to the bottom once, on page load, do this:
<script type="text/javascript">
window.onload = function() {
   var elem = document.getElementById('divTransList');
   elem.scrollTop = elem.scrollHeight;
}
</script>

Code for IE:

<html>
<body>
    <script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
        function MoveDivToBottom() {
            var obj = document.getElementById("divTransList");
            document.getElementById("foodiv").innerHTML = document.getElementById("foodiv").innerHTML + "::" + obj.scrollHeight + ">>" + obj.offsetHeight;
            obj.scrollTop = obj.scrollHeight;
        }
    </script>
<div id="foodiv" style="display:none"></div>    
    <div id="divTransList" style="width: 100%; height: 150px; overflow: auto;">hello<br />hello<br />hello<br />hello<br />hello<br />hello<br />hello<br />hello<br />hello<br />hello<br />
        hello<br />hello<br />hello<br />hello<br />hello<br />hello<br />hello<br />hello<br />hello<br />hello<br />hello
        <br />hello<br />hello<br />hello<br />hello<br />hello<br />hello<br />hello<br />hello<br />hello<br />hello<br />
        hello<br />hello<br />hello        End
</div><script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">MoveDivToBottom();</script>

</body>
</html>

For Non IE: You may remove the foo div and its innerHTML manipulation from the MovDivToBotom - as it is specific for the IE only where it needs some time to move to bottom - which it gets by doing some funny stuff.
