(Auto)scroll option in text

Post by publish-relations » Fri Oct 02, 2009 10:37 pm

Hello all,

Recently I have made my first website with WebYep CMS, thanks to the many people here who supported me great !

Now I wonder if it is possible to use the option "scroll tekst" in to a WebYep text field, as you can choose this in freeway 5.
I don't like it when my customers are typing that long texts, that my layout will become a mess due to that.

Even when I try to choose this option in Freeway 5, this is not used in the WebYep tekst field, as far as I am aware.

Does some one knows a solution here? That would be very appriciated,

Kind regards,

HI Richard
This is how you accomplish what you are tying to do in Freeway.
Draw a normal text box to a size you want and then in the inspector palette, under the items general settings you can assign the layer box to overflow:auto.
Click inside this html box so you see a flashing bar then use either insert/action item/longtext or insert/action item/richtext
Name the longtext or richtext box as normal and publish.
What should happen is the webyep item will fill the div and once it reaches the boundaries of its layer the the scroll bar should appear

all the best max

Hello Max,

Many thanks again, this is nice and exactly how I wanted to have it,
Is this also the way to change styles: letter, bold, bigger letters, color changes etc?

Kind regards,

HI,

Does anyone know if this is possible with Dreamweaver?

Also Can this be integrated in to a gallery?

Thanks
Tony

It's ok, yes it does work! Just put overflow:auto; in to the div css
Thanks
