Chapter 7. Controls > Creating a Scrollable Area

Creating a Scrollable Area

One common request I get from clients is for important content to load “above the fold.” That is, when the page first loads, the content should be at least partially visible without having to scroll the Web page. However, often there is a lot of important content, and it can be quite lengthy, pushing everything else below it down.

To overcome this problem, we can use a simple trick that allows us to put more content into a smaller area by limiting the height of an object and then relying on scrollbars to view the remaining content (Figure 7.9). That way more of the content starts above the fold, so that visitors are aware of it without having to scroll the page.
