Experts,

I am having an issue with scroll bars on a modal web form. The modal form contains a GridView of customer data based on the customer id being passed.  The modal form opens fine, the data in the GridView is correct. But even though the data in the Gridview requires scrolling, there are no scroll bars. In the function below, if I add        scroll:yes       you will see the scoll bar but it is disabled.


<script type="text/javascript">
    function openWindow()
    {
        var strEmpiNo = document.getElementById("<%= txtEmpiNo.ClientID %>").value;
        window.showModalDialog("CommentHistory.aspx?empi=" + strEmpiNo, "","resizable:yes");
    }
    </script>

Any assistance is appreciated.
Thank you.

I removed the following settings from my <style> tag. (margin:0;width:100%;height:100%) Now the scroll bar is functioning properly. Thank you for your time.
