Hi,

I am trying to use the scrollIntoView function for a boxlist element.
The problem is that in the first time  its scrolls the whole page, and only after that it scrolls the list.

Can you post the source HTML?

The HTML is huge so I cannot post it, but the code that does it is very simple.

The attached code is a function that checks that a list has more items that it can hold, and then it sets the overflow to 'auto' and scrolls the 'last_selected_object' into view.
function setScrollbarState(name,last_selected_object)
{
 var obj=document.getElementById(name);
 obj.style.overflowY='hidden';
 if ((obj.scrollHeight-obj.offsetHeight) > 6) 
 {
  obj.style.overflowY='auto';
  if (last_selected_object)
  {
   var obj=document.getElementById(last_selected_object);
   if (obj) obj.scrollIntoView(true);
  }
 }
}

Open in new window

I found out that the problem happens only when the parameter is true.
So, although it does not scroll to the object (exactly) , I now use false.

I works, but without the 'true'.
