Hi Experts!

I would like to be able to cover the browser scroll bar when I use an overlay. It should work from IE6 +. How one can do this?

Thanks

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?

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)
