I'm still seeing scroll bars around the "what's playing now" thing.

Using FireFox, and have just cleared my browser cache.

The inline frame that displays the 'currently playing' information looks fine in IE.

The problem is due to the way in which the different browsers handle the 'scrolling option' within inline frames themselves and other aspects of HTML. Having researched this, it seems that Firefox displays the scroll-bar both at the bottom and to the right of the inline frame whereas IE only displays a scroll bar to the right.

Also, Firefox doesn't recognise the 'colouring' of the scroll-bar itself - this is displayed in a subtle, olive green colour in IE but is shown as a regular grey colour in Firefox.

I'll continue to work on a fix for this over the weekend and let you know the results.

Thanks for the feedback and of course, enjoy. Cool

You have:

Code:
width="75%" 



in your iframe tag. Percentage widths are only supported by Explorer.

So, change that to a number of pixels, instead of %.

Also, looks like the height needs increasing by a few pixels.

Code:
height="319" 



Hopefully, the scroll bars will disappear, when the frame is big enough.

I would hope to see the percentage to stay. It's much more versatile. And not only supported by Internet Exploder. I write all my width specifications as percentages and I never check that with IE. I use Oepra, and that does support percentages.

I'm still working on a solution for this problem. I'll report back when I have more definite information.

I can't see any good reason for even using iframe. So, get rid of it completely.

This playing.php file is just HTML, Javascript and CSS, I don't see any PHP! Why it has the extension .php, I don't know.

So, just copy/paste that code in to the index.html file, and dont use iframe!! LOL

The main, playing.php file is written in php. It basically executes a SQL query against the SAM server at S.A. HQ, asking what's currently playing, what's coming up next, what the last five tracks were played, what the name of CD picture file of the currently playing track is, what the Amazon.com link is and how many listeners are currently tuned-in. Once it has this information, it creates the HTML table that's displayed in the iFrame. The php source won't be displayed in any way if queried via your browser. The php code is executed on the website server and not at browser level - all that you will see if you 'view source' in your browser is the HTML code that is generated by the script. Similar to the Perl code that the forum is written in - the 'source' that's viewed by the end-user is the HTML code that's generated when the forum page in Perl is executed (executed on the website server).

The main problem here is a cosmetic one and the way in which both IE and Firefox handle 'scroll bars'. As mentioned, in my opinion, it looks great in IE but not-so-great in Firefox. Apart from Firefox always displaying a scroll-bar at the bottom of the iFrame (which IE doesn't do) - the colour of the scroll-bars in Firefox are displayed in the regular 'battleship grey' as opposed to the funky green / red in IE. This seems to be due to Firefox not recognising the scroll-bar colour definitions in the <body> tag on the main page and within the php script.

The obvious solution is to switch-off the scroll-bars within the iFrame itself but this obviously won't help if there's an over-spill in the song titles which makes the contents of the table too big to be displayed in the iFrame ... Don't worry - there's a few options that I'm looking at. It'll hopefully be sorted soon enough. Roll Eyes
