JQuery scrollbar issue with IE

Hi Experts

I am trying to use JQuery to load an html page into a <div> when a button is clicked. This all worked fine with Chrome/Safari, but in IE I noticed that when the inserted html page was smaller than the <div> size, the scrollbars did not appear like they did in Safari/Chrome.

i finally figured this out, i had the style property display:none set on the <div>. When I removed this setting the scrollbars worked in all browsers, with no other side effects.

The problem I have now is that when I fire another JQuery function to hide the <div> using either hide() or slideUp(), the <div> does hide, but JQuery has now applied a style property using display:none, which means if I then re-open the <div> the scrollbars have disappeared.

As I said before this is just IE (I am using v9), does anyone know how to prevent this from  happening?

I have also tried removing the 'style' attribute from the <div> using removeAttr(), then recreating the same attributes as before using attr(), but the scrollbars are still missing.

I'm pulling my hair out, please can somebody help me?

Thanks in advance.

What is your statement to show the div ? Can you show some code

jQuerys' hide method sets the style property display to none.
The show method will remove the style property display or in later versions sets it back to what is was before hiding it.

Thank you, this pointed me in the right direction. As you said, it seems that different hide/reveal functions use different methods. It turns out that if I use fadeIn and fadeOut instead of slideIn and slideOut the display attribute is not affected. Problem solved.
Thanks again.
