Default scrolling a div tag in aspx page


I am working with a div tag with vertical scroll. The problem is the main page,where the div tag is placed, scrolls when the scrollbar in div tag reaches its maximum.

How do i allow my main page not to scroll with div tag.

I have applied style="overflow:auto" in the div tag but no use.

please suggest

Have you set a fixed height for your div? If not it will not know at what point to add scrollbars. If you want it to cover the whole screen, just add style="height:100%;" to the div.
If you definitely don't want the main body to ever scroll, you can also set <body style="overflow:hidden;"> to ensure scrollbars are never shown
