View Full Version : positioning & scrolling question

02-12-2004, 10:05 PM
what i'm trying to accomplish is inside an iframe i have a whack of listed information. each record is wider than the iframe is going to be, as well, there will be MANY more records than the viewable area will allow. at the top of this list of information i want to have column headers. my goal is to have the headers scroll sideways when user scrolls horizontally.

this is where it gets tricky, when user scrolls vertically, i would like the headers to stay where they are. so that when user is looking at a record that is at the bottom of the result, the column headers are still viewable.

any ideas?

thanks roy, that was close to what i'm looking for. but not quite.

right now i'm using css to position:relative. that's accomplishing the no scrolling vertically, but it's also locking it horizontally. i need the header row to scroll horizontally only...
