CSS Question

Hide html horizontal but not vertical scrollbar

I have an html textarea that is of fixed width, but variable height. I would like to set overflow:scroll and be able to show a vertical scrollbar, but not a horizontal one. I am not able to use overflow:auto due to other things specific to my situation.

I know there is no way using CSS 2 to show only vertical but not horizontal scrollbars. Is there anything I can do with javascript to hide the horizontal scrollbar?

Answer

You can use css like this:

overflow-y: scroll;
overflow-x: hidden;
