View Full Version : Overflow: auto not displaying all contents in FF/IE - PLEASE HELP!

I have yet another CSS issue::confused:

The site I'm working on has a dynamically generated table within a div named "data", if the number of rows is high (say over 1500 rows) the table is truncated. when I check the generated code all the data is present. Upon troubleshooting, I find that the issue is related to the overflow property I have set for this div. If the overflow is set to either visible or hidden all the rows are displayed. However if I use auto (preferred) or scroll the data table is truncated, while the page length appears as if the entire table is displayed.

Any ideas????



#data {
width: 100%;
overflow: auto;
}



<div id="data">
<table width="100%" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="data" summary="this table displays BDXT selected data">
<tr>
<th scope="col" width="5%" nowrap="nowrap">fund</th>
<th scope="col" width="6%" nowrap="nowrap">bsli</th>
<th scope="col" width="4%" nowrap="nowrap">reg</th>
<th scope="col">title</th>
<th scope="col" width="9%" nowrap="nowrap">projcode</th>
<th scope="col" width="7%" nowrap="nowrap">cip</th>
<th scope="col" width="4%" nowrap="nowrap">afc</th>
<th scope="col" width="10%" nowrap="nowrap">avail</th>
<th scope="col" width="10%" nowrap="nowrap">oblig</th>
<th width="10%" nowrap="nowrap" scope="col">unoblig</th>
<th scope="col" width="10%" nowrap="nowrap">outlays</th>
</tr>
<cfoutput query="qgetbsli" >
<tr>
<td scope="row" align="center" nowrap="nowrap">#fund#</td>
<td align="center" nowrap="nowrap">#bsli#</td>
<td align="center" nowrap="nowrap">#region#</td>
<td>#title#</td>
<td align="center" nowrap="nowrap">#projcode#</td>
<td align="center" nowrap="nowrap">#cip#</td>
<td align="center" nowrap="nowrap">na</td>
<td align="right" nowrap="nowrap">#numberformat(availability,'$,')#</td>
<td align="right" nowrap="nowrap">#numberformat(obligations,'$,')#</td>
<td align="right" nowrap="nowrap">#numberformat(unobligated,'$,')#</td>
<td align="right" nowrap="nowrap">#numberformat(outlays,'$,')#</td>
</tr>
</cfoutput>
</table>
</div>

do you have to use overflow at all? If you dont give it any overflow what does it do? #data should just expand to fit all it's content.

harbingerOTV: Thank you for your response. I have two reasons for using overflow:

The data tables are quite wide and we prefer not to have it extend wider than the viewport.
There was an issue with the container div not expanding with the data div. I posted this isssue in the following thread (http://www.codingforums.com/showthread.php?t=100293).


Any ideas/suggestions you may have is greatly appreciated!

I figured I would add some images to help clarify the issue. The first three images show the result when using the following code (please note: the detail in the images is distorted for security reasons):


#data {
overflow: auto;
height: auto; /*doesn't work even if excluded*/
width: 100%;
border-top: 0px;
border-bottom: 1px solid #369;
border-right: 1px solid #369;
border-left: 1px solid #369;
}


*******************************************************
The fourth image shows the temp solution using the following code:


#data {
overflow: auto;
height: 375px;
width: 100%;
border-top: 0px;
border-bottom: 1px solid #369;
border-right: 1px solid #369;
border-left: 1px solid #369;
}

are you giving the body and the html a height of 100%?

it might be something like the table inside the div is being cut off by the height of the body which is being set by the height of the #data div.
