why I can scroll up and down in my bbUI app?

hi, i have a simple bbui app which looks like this:

<!DOCTYPE html>
	<link  rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="bbui.css"><link />
	<script type="text/javascript" src="bbui.js"></script>
	<script type="text/javascript" src="local:///chrome/webworks.js"></script>
	<script type="text/javascript">
		document.addEventListener('webworksready', function(e) {
			bb.pushScreen('content.html', 'menu');
		}, false);


 and the content.html:

<div data-bb-type="screen">
	<div data-bb-type="panel-header">Font</div>
		<div data-bb-type="label-control-horizontal-row">
			<div data-bb-type="label">Font Style:</div>
			<div data-bb-type="button" onclick="alert('click');" id="plain">Plain</div>



so its just a bit text and a button, the problem:

when I start the app, I can scroll up and down although the button and the text is just 10% of the heigh of the page.


how to disable this?

Re: why I can scroll up and down in my bbUI app?

Screen scrolling effects are implemented by default for PlayBook and BlackBerry 10. If you're using of these devices and want to avoid scrolling you should add the data-bb-scroll-effect="off" attribute to the screen div.


<div data-bb-type="screen" data-bb-scroll-effect="off">


Hope it helps.
