I am trying to create my own scroll bars. I have tried most of the jquery scrollbar plugins and none of them seem to work for me, so I decided to create my own. I have an overflow area with scrollable content. I can get the scrollbar to work if I am able to figure out the height of the scrollable content area. I have tried .scrollHeight() and the browser doesn't even recognize it. The overflow area has a fixed position.
Height of the scroll view of an element; it includes the element padding but not its margin.
<div id="x" style="height: 100px; overflow: hidden;"> <div style="height: 200px;"> pancakes </div> </div>
This yields 200:
