Hi all,

I believe you guys can help me out with an idea on achieving what i want

Ok i have a Scrollable Table, achieved using the following CSS code:

And in the JSP, to have a scrollable Table i will have something like..

<div class="tableContainer" >

I am ok with CSS but not an expert, Is there a way like say if there are 200 rows in table,
I can have the scroll bar some where positioned at 100th row or something like that,...
I mean using CSS, move the scroll bar ?? Can that be done?

Presently when the page loads The table displays from the top rows as expected.. can i have the scrollbar positioned anywhere i want ?

Thanks a lot, I appreciate

Well you probably would have to set the scrollTop with JavaScript when the page loads.
