Hi Experts,

Can anyone tell me why I am getting a scroll bar with the following when I am expecting for the div to automatically stretch vertically?

    display: block;
    float: left;
    overflow: auto;
    padding-top: 10px;
    width: 100%;
    text-align: center;
    position: relative;
    outline: 2px solid red; 

    position: absolute;
    width: 100%;
    overflow: auto;
   /* display: none;*/
   /* background-color: cyan;*/
