Smooth scroll in one div with two divs @ 100% height side by side

Looking to have 100% height on two divs side by side. I want to keep each div independent in scrolling content in each but in the blue div/column, I would like to have a smooth scroll feature. It works now but you will see the red column does not retain its 100% column height.

Thanks for any insight...

greetings  brihol44, ,  You can use javascript to get the display height of the blue div with -
        var hgt = $( "#bdiv" ).height();
and then set the height of the red div with -
        $( "#adiv" ).height(hgt);

$(document).ready(function (){
var hgt = $( "#bdiv" ).height();
$( "#adiv" ).height(hgt);

            $('a').click(function (){
                $('html, body').animate({
                    scrollTop: $("#sectionb").offset().top
                }, 2000);

Open in new window

And the red div is displayed as 100%, but because it is a FLOAT , , it uses the window height as the measure for 100%, not the container
