    I have an datagrid width a scrollbar. This scrollbar is placed
    using a div-tag around the grid with a style property
    overflow:scrolling, a width an a height. This works very well in
    Internet Explorer. But when I view the result in Mozilla Firefox, then
    there is no scrollbar visible, it show the whole grid. This is not the
    result I want.

    Has someone had the same problem and can give me an answer?

    The main problem is that IE isn't standards compliant (well.. not as
    much as FireFox). That is the downfall of IE.

    But seeing a Web Developer needs to cater to both those using IE and
    those using FireFox you have to be tricky with your Styles.

    Use the _ Hack with IE.



    FireFox will use the 40px width, IE will use the 35px. IE ignores the _
    where FireFox discards it.

    make sure to set the height of the Div.

    Thanks for the post, but my problem was that I had placed the style
    property in a seperate CSS-file, when I placed it with my HTML-code, my
    scrollbar appeared in firefox as well as in IE.

    Why I don't no.
