Hmm, not fully sure what you are trying to achieve?

You have a page that has a VERTICAL scrollbar and you wish to hide that scrollbar using an overlay?

Is this scrollbar in an iframe or the actual main page?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Add this to your CSS file:

html, body { overflow: hidden; }


Or if you are putting your CSS as a script text inside the html page:

<style type="text/css">
html, body { overflow:auto }
</style>

But you are aware that hiding your scrollbar means you'll be unable to view parts of the page, right?

right. I would like to block the user when an ajax request needs to update a bigger part of the page. He will not be able to use the Y scroll-bar as long as the update takes place.

OK, well, above is the code to hide the Scrollbar. Good luck. :)

(Just keep in mind whenever you design something that users have expectations)
