    Question Scroolbar help needed.

    I'm a bit of a newbie at programming... I've already done some sites but I'm heavily Frontpage dependent.

    I've been redesigning the site so its CSS rather than frames. I want as liquid as possible a design, but there are some things I'll need to do absolute...

    The main problem is that I'm gonna have a picture all the way across the top. (no big problem you say...)

    The issue is that I cant stretch it (as in width="100%"; as it will distort the image itself, and besides... I have a feature I want to incorporate...

    I need to turn the horizontal toolbars off. I dunno how to do this....

    (the idea is that as resolution is cranked, the more/less of the piccy you see, but you cant tell the piccy is just "running out of space".)

    Cheers
    Rick

    If you wanna see my old efforts, please visit www.fourteenten.co.uk but like I said, I'm redesigning it all cause its a bit framey and pants.

    Since you have a solid colored background and a simple image your solution is easy.

    By using a 3 cell table row you can place the image into the center cell using an absolute size. In the 2 outside cells you can include a 1 pixel black image(since this is the color you are using) and make the cells 100%.

    Try not putting a width. As long as it isn't confined in any way then it should work.

    Yeah.. I tried a similar thing. I can resise the pic such that it is fluid, but cause of my design I've realised I need to position it absolutely cause there is a non fluid element in my vertical design.

    I've worked around this and its as good as it needs to be now, I just need to disable the horizontal scroll bar!

    (I swear you'll see what I mean when it's finished)

    ok dude...

    The old site is www.fourteenten.co.uk this is my band website and i'm doing it up.

    The new code can be found at my "test" site, here: -

    www.headup.plus.com/test

    At least 1/3 of the links dont work, but thats not what I'm worried about. FYI I've set up a CSS situation, with a horizontally fluid set up.

    However, the piccy at the top is DESIGNED to mainly not be seen. If you can see, I've got a massive (as in bigger than 1200 wide) image at the top... The idea is, the more res is cranked the more you see... But I DONT want it scaled, I just want it to mean that as long as you using sensible res (i.e - 768x whatever to 1200 x whatever) it doesn't matter...

    I just want to disable horizontal scroll bars! I'm happy with my solution and way of doing things, I just need to disable the horizontal scrollbar factor!

    Cheers
    Rick
