Hi Alan,

A very valid point ..... even with a 'wheel mouse' it's occasionally frustrating having to return to the 'pagetop' to go to the next page.

Traditional ways around this are ....

1 - having a text menu at the 'pagefooter'
2 - having a 'back to top' button at the end of every section
3 - using shorter pages Wink

But increasingly options like the following 'scrolling menu' are being used ....

It works for horizontal and vertical menus too.

For instance, you have a long text page which requires scrolling to reach the bottom. At the same time you have a top navigation bar which you want to hold on the screen even when you scroll down through the page. That's easy to do using frames. Is there any way of doing it using tables?


Yes, although I've never personally used it, I intend to do so for a page I've been working on for my parents.

There's an example at this URL: webfx.eae.net/dhtml/syncscroll/scrolltable.html -- I don't think that's a bad neighborhood, but I made it un-clickable just to be sure. Just copy and paste it, no prepending of "www" needed.

Cheers!

Alan,

I've just tried it on my parents' real estate page and it was a snap!

Code in the table tag such as:
Code:
<td>
<div style="width:100px;height:150px;overflow:auto">
...content of cell...
</div>
</td>


Will keep the table cell at a 100X150 px dimention and give a
scroll bar automatically if the contents bypass the size.

I just put it up -- took me about 5 minutes -- and it's working perfectly. Smile

Cheers!
-Brooke

P.S. - For whatever reason, just my personal tastes, but I can't stand those scrolling menus... only about half of the ones I've seen work properly in Firefox.
