Problem with scrollbar in IE

The htmlArea 2 & 3 editors have been discontinued.

We've made these forums available as a read-only reference and knowledge-base for people using or developing editors based on htmlArea 2 or 3.

Anyone who is interested in taking over version 2 or 3 is free to do so. All we ask is that you choose a new name that doesn't have "htmlarea" in it to avoid confusion with this site. We'll even give you a link in the directory to make it easier for people to find you. If you are developing or hosting an htmlArea based-editor under a new name, please submit it to our directory.

Problem with scrollbar in IE Can't Post

Hi there,

I've been working on a content management system for some time now (internship), and i've implemented an adjusted version of HTMLArea to give users a great tool to edit their content. I've got it to work with mozilla and IE, with some PHP code for uploading images and some other things. All works well, except for the scollbar, which behaves very strange in IE.

When the user selects a page for editing, the HTMLArea is loaded, and the content is loaded in the HTMLArea so the user can edit the content. Most of the time, the content can't be fully displayed in the HTMLArea, so scrollbars are created.

My problem is that when the user clicks on the scrollbar arrow, or drags the scrollbar to the desired position, it (the scrollbar) jumps to the end of the page. This is very annoying because the only way to move through the text is by pressing the arrow keys on the keyboard. I have to say that this behavior is only occurring with IE 6 and service pack 2 installed. I've tried it with IE 6 + SP1 and Mozilla Firefox and it works like a charm!

Is anybody familiar with this problem, and if so, does anybody have a solution to it?

Kind regards,


PS: the HTMLArea itself is GREAT...
