too many scrollbars

Discussion in 'ASP .Net' started by Dwight Johnson, Dec 5, 2007.

  1. I am building a page using a masterpage and a content page. When the
    content exceeds the height of the page, I get a single vertical
    scrollbar on the right, and that's fine.

    However, when the content is too wide for the page as well as too
    long, I get the same scrollbar on the right, what I'll call the OUTER
    vertical scrollbar, plus a second INNER vertical scrollbar just to the
    left, and a horizontal scroll bar at the bottom, not attached to the
    bottom of the page, but joined at the lower right with the INNER
    vertical scrollbar. I have to use the OUTER vertical scrollbar to even
    see the horizontal scrollbar. Very ugly.

    Anyone have any ideas what is going on here? It almost seems the the
    MasterPage is scrolling separately within something else.

  2. Fixed the problem by putting style="overflow:visible" on body tag of
    master page. This way there is now just one horizontal and one
    vertical scrollbar for the entire page.
