Weird field appearance with scroll bar

I'm noticing a problem with any version of FileMaker after 7:

In IWP, when a field is defined to have a scroll bar, it displays very oddly on the web page.

It looks like a box within a box, and I can't figure out how to get rid of it.

Has anyone else had this problem? Am I doing something wrong? Do have to just live without scrollbars on the web? Inquiring minds want to know.

IWP is a blackbox "automatic Filemaker Client emulator for web"...

Its conversion between FM and HTML/JS is intended to work without any user fiddling, and in fact, any user fiddling is unsupported.

So whatever comes out of IWP is to be taken 'as is'.

What this means is that fixing broken behaviour in IWP is officially an FMI(-only) task...

Some people have had success hacking the IWP output, using a Webviewer referencing custom Javascript, in turn manipulating the DOM tree in the browser.

This is VERY advanced hacking. Since IWP will change with revisions/upgrades you're probably better off spending your time on something else.

If you can't accept the oddities of IWP, CWP is the way to go for complete control over appearance/behaviour...
