Hello!, here's a question, Can I insert a scroll bar on a div? I need to visualize a huge HTML code on a limited space without using frames, so I need the scroll bar, How can I do it?

Why can't you use frames? iframes would be simple....

Yes it would be easy, but it slows my application (and it is so slow now), and speed is critical to my client. (javascript is so fast :-) )

Ah, well sorry, I can't really help you on this one... DIVs are not my specialty.. :(

<div style="overflow:scroll"> Scrollable content goes here </div>

This should work in all CSS2-compatible browsers.

You can set both the x and y axis overflow to 'auto', 'no', and 'yes':

For example:
style='overflow-y: auto; overflow-x: no;'

If you use overflow: scroll; or overflow:auto; you may also need to set the height style for the DIV.

Not if you care about W3C standards, and support for non-IE browsers.
