View Full Version : Scrollable Content II + scrollwheel?

01-23-2006, 04:00 AM
Is it possible to activate the scrollwheel in Scrollable Content II if you don't want to use the mouseover arrows? My friend insisted that I used Scrollable Content II in the design that I made him, but some users are annoyed by the arrows you have to mouseover, and wish they could just use the scrollwheel in order to scroll through the content box. If you want to view the website to see what I'm talking about, we're located at http://free.hostultra.com/~MICruisin/index.php

Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks in advance.

Also, I apologize if this was already addressed, I searched for all Scrollable Content II help, 3 pages of it to be exact, and couldn't find anything regarding this subject. Thanks again!

Not without activating the scrollbar(s) as well and in so doing, it will make things act weird at and approaching the bottom of the content. I adapted the iframe scroller to be close to what you are looking for. Perhaps you can adapt it to work for your purposes. Here is a demo (http://home.comcast.net/~jscheuer1/side/frame3.htm). It's been awhile since I even looked at this code so, although it works, I might do things differently if I were to write for it today.

Kind of what I am looking for, although it would be nice to not have the scrollbars. If it isn't possible, that's cool. If you wouldn't mind posting what you did, I don't mind messing with it a little bit to change it to my liking. Thanks for your input!

To see the code for my demo, use view source on your browser. Don't forget to look at the code for the page showing through the iframe, it is called external.htm. If you set the scrolling="no" attribute on the iframe, it will still scroll with the wheel except in IE.
