Topic: Fixed Layout - No Left to Right Scroll

What do I need is a fixed layout that will expand and contract as needed per the viewers screen resolution or to allow left and right scrolling at least?

Thank you!

Re: Fixed Layout - No Left to Right Scroll

If you are using the css that came in the example html files remove:

overflow: hidden;

Problem is the site is taking up about 1300px and on non-widescreens or people with their resolution set low the caption text is cut off.

Thank you!

Try giving your #flashcontent div and the var fo = new SWFObject("viewer.swf", "viewer", "100%", "100%", "8", "#181818");
a fixed width.

Tried that...you can view it here:

What I really need is for the left to right browser scroll to show or for the site to contract to fit the screen which I am pretty sure won't work with a fixed layout.

Another idea is to move the introductory text to the top however then the thumbnails become hidden...

Thanks for your continued help :-)

Re: Fixed Layout - No Left to Right Scroll

If the SWF width is set to 1000 px wide and the browser is smaller than that, the browser should show a left-right scroll bar. Not sure why it is not in your case, I am guessing it's an issue in the HTML code. Try stripping out some of the CSS and tables until you see the scroll bars.

Re: Fixed Layout - No Left to Right Scroll

What I feel that if  you set SWF width is set to 1050 px wide and if browser is smaller than that, the browser should show a left-right scroll bar.  There is no need to do anything extra. Can you share some more info what exactly you are doing and what you get. Since HTML takes care of these thing so generally we don't do.
