I tried to use Keyword Search to find an answer to this, but did not turn up anything.  I apologize in advance if I missed it.

I am looking for a way to put a scroll-bar display area within the body of a webpage.

I have seen some pages where the content is too extensive to display.  Consequently they have displayed the content within a sub-area of the body which has its own scroll bars that the user can take advantage of to read the data.

Can this be done using FrontPage tools?
And, if so, how.


RE: Scroll bar area within page body

As Rosanne Rosana Dana (Gilda Radner) used to say in Saturday Night Live...   "Never Mind"

I see that inserting an Inline Frame into the body of the page and displaying another page, I can achieve what I needed.


RE: Scroll bar area within page body

Just in case - you can also use CSS - something like


<div style="width: 200px; height: 100px; overflow: auto;">
Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit. Nam enim. Aenean purus. Morbi ut pede. Ut tempus, eros non sodales aliquet, enim mauris pretium dolor, sit amet consequat libero nulla eu risus. Pellentesque ut massa. Donec ultricies erat tempus quam. Nam eleifend urna eget augue. Vivamus lobortis odio vitae pede. Morbi in quam. Cras sit amet leo vitae elit eleifend pretium. Praesent orci. Vestibulum tortor. Fusce vehicula. Nullam lacinia dignissim eros. Donec sodales nisl et mi. Cum sociis natoque penatibus et magnis dis parturient montes, nascetur ridiculus mus. Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit. Maecenas id lacus ac nunc vehicula varius.
and that will give you the scrolling effect without using frames.
