Description

18 years ago
Testcase forthcoming (AIM chat window). In the case of a XUL window which 
contains an IFRAME who's original SRC is a .html file. This view is originally 
empty but is continually appended to via the DOM (it the the chat conversation 
history).  Scrolling this window is essential for the view to properly "track" 
the conversation (stay at the "bottom" of the window after content has been 
appended).

What happens is the content scrolls when I call .scrollBy(0,1000) but two events 
occur:
1) I get this message:
WARNING: not supported for views, file nsScrollPortView.cpp, line 98

2) The frame scrolls but not "all the way" it "misses" by about 5 pixels, so that 
the text on the bottom only displays the "top half" of the characters.

Im accessing this frame by 

window.frames['someframename']

In the XUL context.

Andrew, is this still a problem? Is there a testcase for it? If you need 
this for RTM, you will need to make a strong argument about why this needs
to be fixed rather than some other scheduled bug.

Marking Future in the interim. (mass-moving all non-nsbeta3+ evaughan bugs 
to Future per trudelle).

I've worked around the problem. This can wait.

Do we want to revisit this one for Mozilla 1.0?

This bug is targeted at a Mac classic platform/OS, which is no longer supported
by mozilla.org. Please re-target it to another platform/OS if this bug applies
there as well or resolve this bug.

I will resolve this bug as WONTFIX in four weeks if no action has been taken.
To filter this and similar messages out, please filter for "mac_cla_reorg".
