iframe scrolling problem

I'm having problems getting scrollbars to appear using the 'scrolling'
attribute of the 'iframe' tag, and I'm wondering if anyone can help
me.

I would expect the following code to produce a horizontal scrollbar at
the bottom of the iframe if my browser resolution is set to less than
950 width, but for some reason it doesn't. Does anyone have any idea
why not?

<iframe src="http://apps.xxx:8050/" name="iApp" id="iApp"
scrolling="yes" width="950" height="600" align="left" frameborder="0"
hspace="0" vspace="0">
Your browser does not support iframes. Please contact Helpdesk to
upgrade your web browser to the latest version of Internet Explorer.

Who do they contact to upgrade their web browser to a *decent* one, like Mozilla?

But, as we know, Internet Explorer is not a browser. It is a part of the
Windows operating system.

I am using IE6, which does support iframes. The iframe is being
displayed OK, but it is not displaying the scrollbars, even with
scrolling="yes" set.

I believe you may have misunderstood my question.

Regards,

Mark.

I believe you misunderstand usenet.

In the words of "nobull":

"Get real! This is a discussion group, not a helpdesk. You post
something, we discuss its implications. If the discussion happens to
answer a question you've asked, that's incidental."

You posted something that some of the regular readers here found truly
squirmworthy. One of them commented on it. Some discussion followed.
Learn from that experience or not - your choice.

Not really. *You* were the one who did that. Usenet just goes on as
it always did, and does. I was trying to offer you some advice -
which you can take or not, as you choose.

good luck.

The iframe's horizontal scrollbar will appear when the iframe's content
is wider than 950px, since it's scrollbar is for scrolling iframe
content and not your browser's contents.

I'll bet your *browser*'s horizontal scrollbar appears when you resize
your window < 950px, since it's content consists of an element that's
explicitly set to 950px.
