Script: Scrollable Content

I was wondering if there was a way to remove the horizontal scroll bar in this script. I only need/want the vertical scrollbar.

There certainly is:

Replace this:

<div id="scroll3" style="width:170px;height:381px;background-color:lightyellow;overflow:scroll">

With this:

<div id="scroll3" style="width:170px;height:381px;background-color:lightyellow;overflow-y:scroll;overflow-x:hide">

And you should be sorted.

Thank you, works fine in IE6 but not in NS7.2 and Firefox 1.0PR. Any suggestions?

I found this somewhere a while ago...

I found out a long time ago that Netscape is an altogether different animal: it doesn't even comply to the system's settings and displays a plumb scrollbar everywhere it sees fit.

I forgot to run this script over FireFox (my default browser), as I wrote the code in Frontpage, which uses integrated IE6. Sorry :)

If I recall correctly, the correct way to hide the horizontal scrollbar in CSS is "overflow-x: hidden", not "overflow-x: hide". :) So the result should be:

<div id="scroll3" style="width:170px;height:150px;background-color:lightyellow;overflow:scroll; overflow-x: hidden">

This will cause the horizontal scrollbar to disappear in IE, though as noted, Firefox will still display it.
