You can use some CSS to remove scroll bars in browsers.
Is your solution hosted? If so you could use the fmp protocol (i.e. fmp://) to call a script, in your database file, that uses the Open URL script step to launch the browser.
<a href="fmp://ip-of-hosted-file/databasename?script=OpenURL¶m=URL-you-want-to-open-in-browser">Link here</a>
This would call the OpenURL script with parameter URL-you-want-to-open-in-browser.
OpenURL script would be :
Open URL [No dialog ; <Get ( ScriptParameter )>
Doing something like above should work.
Yeah, we already have code that adds the target="_blank" to the link, but it doesn't work if the user's default browser is Chrome or Firefox, as those browsers tend to open new tabs rather than new windows. The new tab just displays in the small viewer window inside the database, and because there are no tabs or back buttons, they are unable to get back to the feed unless they go away from that screen and come back to it. We can't tell the users to reconfigure their browsers just for our application.
The scrollbar I'd like to remove isn't in the browser, it's on the web viewer window in the database. We'd like to have the one that allows users to scroll up and down, but the text fits within the window and they don't need to scroll left to right, so that one is not needed. We can't seem to make it go away.
I'll check to see what the programmer used when she set up the script we've already tried. It did work, but it worked even when a user tried to scroll further down; the scrollbar set off the script, too. And we'd like to have the up/down scrollbar be usable.
