Problem when scrolling?



I have one VerticalFieldManager with some bitmap field when i click on bitmap field it will show browser content beside that (showed in attachment-1).  my problem is when i scroll through the browser content, the left side imagebar also moving downwards (showed in attachment-2) but it should be there at same position it should not move with browser content.  For example if i set mainScreen.setBanner(field), mainScreen.setStatus(field) then that field will not move while scrolling the mainsceen content exactly same behaviour I would like to see for my imagebar at leftside of the screen.


Below Image Bar created with by adding BitmapFields to the VerticalFieldManager.  And BrowserContent is Field type. So These two components i have added to HorizontalFieldManager.

Re: Problem when scrolling?

I'm not able to see the images you posted since the URL's are referring to localhost.  Can you host them on a public web server?

Re: Problem when scrolling?

if i understood you correctly you want to have a non-scrolling area on your screen, like the title or status area, correct?

you can use different managers to achieve this. add the non-scrollable fields to the first manager, created with the appropriate styles.
add the scrollable fields to the second manager and create it with the appropriate styles (show scrollbar etc)

btw, to upload images there is a multitude of free hosting services. imageshack.us, example given.

Re: Problem when scrolling?

Adding the banner and the VerticalFieldManager as the Title area might also work.  Just a thought.
