Horizontal scrollbar hides last row

The horizontal scrollbar causes some strange behavior for me. The problem is that the horizontal scrollbar hides the last row when I show or hide a div elsewhere on the page.

For example, I have a grid with a horizontal and vertical scrollbar on the right side of the screen taking up 100% height and all but 100 pixels on the left. I scroll all the way to the bottom of the grid and it shows the last item correctly. Then I click elsewhere on the page (not in the grid), to make a div appear (again not in the grid), and the bottom row of the grid disappears until I scroll up and then down all the way again in the grid.

Unfortunately, this makes it difficult for me to allow the horizontal scrollbar to appear because it could be confusing to someone using it when the bottom row continually disappears.

Is there anything I can do about this?

I second this one... I have tried to fix it using different sizing... but it doesn't seem to work.

Basically the vertical scrollbar should show the moment the bottom of the last row hits where the top of the horizontal scroll bar starts.

I haven't dove into the code, but it should be there somewhere.

You won´t believe which of the many codes, scripts and table behaviors is the one that blocks, hides or prevents the unwanted horizontal scroll bar, it is quite simple: replace the

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Frameset//EN">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">

by a simple


Thats´all. That worked for me. I spent all my morning in that,

Anyone ever find a solution to the issue Mark talked about? I have the same issue, but instead chaning a DIV I'm changing the text of a SPAN. When I make the update the bottom record drops down and the only way to see it again is to move the scroll bar up and down, then row shows back up.
