vbscript >> VBScript and IE page scrolling

by howardbryden » Wed, 07 Sep 2005 13:33:00 GMT

I'm have a VBS module that sends text to an IE page as a simple
progress tracker.

I'd like the browser to behave in the same way as a console text
screen, i.e. the current cursor migrates down to the bottom edge of the
window with subsequent outputs causing an implicit scroll down.
However in IE there is no such implicit scrolling and the user has to
use the scroll bar to eplicitly migrate to the bottom of the page for
the latest output.

I though the "doScroll" method would do the trick but I haven't had any
luck with it so far.

Has anyone cracked this one?

Explicitly scroll down after output.

With ieApp.document.body
.insertAdjacentText "beforeEnd", strMessage & vbCrLf
With .createtextrange
' .collapse False
.scrollIntoView False
End With
End With

1. Help with scroll bars on frames page using vbscript

I need some help.  I can't seem to rid myself from the horizontal scroll bar at the bottom of my main frame page.  On that page there are 3 dynamically created tables and when those tables are populated with less data that the total page there are no scroll bars.  However,  when the tables get big longer than the bottom allows, the vertical scroll bar shows up w/ the horizontal.  Since the vertical scroll bar takes some of the display space, the total visible space is now less than the working space of the page causing the horizontal scroll bar to appear.  

I have tried everything.  The only way to stop the horiz - scroll bar to appear is to use scrolling = "no" however that also gets rid of my horizontal scroll bar which i need when the tables get big enough.  If anyone knows how to work around this please respond.  The main body page is a VBscript active server page which connects to a database and displays in tablature form, 3 querys.  If you need me to include any of my code just let me know.
