I am trying to get a div tag that I have overlapping other divs with the "z-index" and 'position' rules. Everything looks good except the div stays put even when the page scrolls. Is there a way to get this fixed position div to scroll with the rest of the page?

I want the fixed div to scroll. On the link you sent the navigation box stays where it is and the page scrolls behind it. I want the fixed div to scroll with the page.

You want the content in the div to scroll while the main window is scrolling. Am I understanding you now?

Yea I am only using this method for its overlapping capabilities. I do want it to scroll with the rest of the page though.

Try this javascript:

window.onscroll = function () {
  document.getElementById("divID").scrollTop = document.body.scrollTop;
}

Open in new window

Hi RNB,
Looks like your parent div needs: position: relative;
You need to have your absolute positioned div relative to the next outside div. Right now it sounds like your div is positioned relative to the browser window. Once you add this code you will have to adjust your top: ,  left: , bottom: , right: , (whichever ones you used). Because now it will be using the parent div as a reference.

Do you have some code or a Url we can look at?
