 xtree scroll bar problems in IE, Redtopia, February 26, 2004

Subject: xtree scroll bar problems in IE From: Redtopia Date: February 26, 2004

I'm still trying to find a fix for the scroll bar issues I'm having in IE. The xtree needs to exist 20 pixels from the top of it's frame and extend to the bottom of the frame. As suggested by Erik in a previous post, I'm using the following style:

.container {
position: absolute;
top: 20px;
bottom: 0;
left: 0;
width: 100%;
overflow: auto;
}

This style works perfectly on both Windows and Macintosh in Netscape and even Safari, but does not work in IE. The IE behavior is this:

When the frame is resized horizontally and the content overflows, BOTH scrollbars appear, and the vertical scroll bar is approx 20 pixels off.

When the frame is resized vertically to clip the content, the vertical scroll bar does not appear at any time. I have a feeling this is because the height is not represented in the above style and probably defaults to 0.

The following code is how I have the xtree setup:

<div class="container">
<div style="padding:2px;">
.. xtree code ..
</div>
</div>

How do you suggest I proceed?
