How to show scroll bar in <td>?

I tried to use this to display scrollbar in both the vertical and horizontal direction.

<td style=“width: 15%; white-space:nowrap; overflow:auto”>some long texts here</td>

But it will be always expand the length and not displaying the scroll bar in the horizontal direction.

How to show scrollbar in the table and <td>?

Give the cell a fixed height :slight_smile:

Set table-layout:fixed; to force the table to keep the dimensions.

Or put a div inside the <td> and put the content inside that with a width/overflow.

I tried to put a div inside the <td>, but it’s not working. To put table-layout:fixed, it’s working in Firefox, but not IE.

Well did you give the div a fixed height and overflow:auto;? Otherwise it should work.
