Hello,

I'm experimenting with htmleditor component to display rich text format data. So I ran into an issue of displaying large text because the scrollbars are not visible. Can I set scrollbars in the component to be always visible?

Thanks! Ilia

Hi Ilia,

I couldn't reproduce your issue here. When the contents of an HtmlEditor component is larger than itself HtmlEditor should show scrollbars. Please see the screenshot below.

Please send us an sample application that demonstrates your problem in order to let us reproduce and investigate the issue deeper.

Regards.

I'm using Safari or Chrome browser, and try to display a very long text string in the htmleditor component. The horizontal scrollbar appears only when I pesss an arrow key (focus is in the htmleditor), and then it immediately disappears. I'd like it to stay always visible. I wish I could attach a screenshot, but my karma doesn't allow me to :-)

I'll create a sample app to demonstrate the behavior. Please let me know where to send it to.

Thanks, Ilia

Hi Ilia,

I tried your sample application with Chrome on Mac and Chrome on Windows Vista. In both cases the horizontal scroll bar is there. However, Chrome on Mac does not show it until you start to scroll. (just verified that Safari on Mac behaves the same way.) I think this might be about how Mac OS X ( 10.8.5 in my case) deals with scroll bars. Are you on a Mac or a Windows machine?

Kind Regards,
Yalim

Yes, I tried it on Mac OS X 10.9. I guess, that's a feature - not a bug :-)

Thank you for the quick response!

Hi Ilia,

You are welcome. For what it is worth, I hate it too. It still confuses me. It is such a bad design error.

Kind Regards, Yalim
