    Angry Tables and Scroll Bars

    Hey guys!!

    I want to create a splash page with NO SROLL BARS at all.

    Here is a good example :: http://www.2advanced.com/archive/v2/index.html

    The scroll bars only appear when its real small, thats ok!!

    This is what i have done so far.

    I created a table with 100% height and width, so there are no scrol bars.....but when i add another layout table on top of that, suddenly scroll bars appear!!

    Ive tried evrything so far, im sure it is simple, but i cant get rid of the scroll bars!!

    Can anyone please help me!!

    (dreamweaver mx)

    This is what i have done so far.

    Thanks

    Hi there.

    You get a scrollbar when your document is bigger than the available screen size. You mentioned your page was 100% tall and then you added another table so it must be bigger than 100% now.

    Try reducing the 100% figure to 97 or something, play with the numbers until its perfect.

    Thanks for ur reply!!

    But if the table under is 100% both width and height, wouldnt the tablt i place on top, stick to that??

    This is exactly what i have done

    Layout View ::

    Created a table, made it 100% height and width

    Created another table on top of that ( no certain width or length)

    but now the scroll bars appear...WHY??

    What do you mean by on top? Is the second table enclosing the 100% table, or is it inside it? If you are using an editor and are not sure how tables work, try going thru the tutorials on the top right, there is a table tutorial in there.

    Are the tables nested like:

    table width="100%" height="100%"
    ....tr
    ........td

    ..................table
    ......................tr
    ..........................td

    ..................content and things...............

    ........................../td
    ....................../tr
    ................../table

    ......../td
    ..../tr
    /table

    Can you post a link or some of your code?

    That site's done with two frames and has a few tables nested in one table in the top frame. (Can't tell offhand why...It doesn't look as complicated except that it involves flash.....I know nothing about flash.)

    Where were you when I wanted an opening page where you'd flip a switch and a garage door would open. I sort of got what I wanted using 'frames' and 'MS page transitions', but the door didn't slide out of the way, it just 'wiped' up the central frame. LOL

    We'll await your link.

    Do you mean like when you insert

    scrollbar="no"

    into the body tag? I sort of did the same thing by changing the outside table's height to 90%.

    Or do you want the whole structure of the scrollbar to disappear? That requires DHTML and javascript. Do a search on chromeless windows.

    On the other hand I would just use:

    <style>

    <!--
    scrollbar-face-color: #000000;
    scrollbar-highlight-color: #000000;
    scrollbar-shadow-color: #000000;
    scrollbar-3dlight-color: #000000;
    scrollbar-arrow-color: #000000;
    scrollbar-darkshadow-color: #000000;
    -->
    </style>

    in the head. LOL, that's pretty drastic

    I have it but it's corporate and I'm behind a nasty arrangement of firewalls. I can only IM internally.....

    I believe the scrollbar is something controlled by the browser and the only way to completely do away with it is through hacks and workarounds. I don't think that there's a 'silver bullet' sure fire way of doing it for every browser without some kind of client side scripting (chromeless windows).

    As I mentioned before, try the CSS scrollbar attributes.
    Works for me in IE5, IE5.5, and IE6....

    EDIT

    I'm bad.....here's the correct CSS:

    <style>
    <!--
    body {
    scrollbar-face-color: #000000;
    scrollbar-highlight-color: #000000;
    scrollbar-shadow-color: #000000;
    scrollbar-3dlight-color: #000000;
    SCROLLBAR-ARROW-COLOR: #000000;
    scrollbar-arrow-color: #000000;
    scrollbar-darkshadow-color: #000000;
    }
    -->
    </style>


    C/P this into the head of the document maybe right before the <body> tag.
