Autoscroll

Hi,

I'd like to know the way to do an autoscroll on a frame.

I have a webpage with a frame on the left side that contains a lot of
expandable links. So If i expand all the links, the scroll bar for the frame doesn't move down automatically. I've to move the scroll bar
manually to see the last expanded links.
Is there any way to move the scroll bar automatically.

Cheers,
Nura

    Hi Nura,

    This script scrolls automatically. Put it in the frame you want the scrolling to appear.


    function scrollPage()
    {
    window.scrollBy(0,100) //(horizontal direction, vertical direction)
    setTimeout('scrollPage()',1000); // scroll page up every second
    }

    if (document.layers || document.all) //checks for Netscape's or Explorer's objects

    scrollPage()


    It does not scroll very nicely but the code is straightforward.

    Hi

    You could also try something like this




    function doResize()
    {
    if (bod.scrollHeight>bod.clientHeight)
    bod.scrollTop=bod.scrollHeight-bod.clientHeight
    }







    I'm not sure if the resize event fires under the circumstances you describe, but I'm sure there's some event that does. Maybe you should put it in the onclick event of your expandable link with something like

    bod.scrollTop = event.srcElement.style.top

    Hope this helps

    PS Theres a page on msdn that describes all the positioning variables (top, clientHeight, scrollTop etc.) It's http://msdn.microsoft.com/workshop/author/om/measuring.asp
