I have a report that has uses two cross tabs to simulate a locked header.

One cross tab is just the header. The second cross tab is just the row and details and is placed, via javascript, within an iframe. This allows the details to be scrollable while the header remains stationary.

On my local machine, this works perfectly. However, once it's on the web viewer on our report server, the cross tab fails to work properly.

The row area items and all of the cells, including those in the detail area, scroll correctly and are contained within the iframe. The items that are contained in the detail cells (label, data and dynamic text items) are not. Those items completely ignore the iframe.

This means, the row area scrolls up and down, as do the cells of the detail area which have different colors, but the items in the detail stay where they are. Also, the row area and cells do not appear below the iframe, but the detail items do.

I have tried adjusting things in the CSS and even not using the styles.css altogether. While this effects the look of the report, it does nothing to the iframe issue.

I created the report in BIRT 4.2.1. The web viewer is 4.2.1. The Java version is JRockit 1.6.

Any suggestion would be helpful because my boss and I have run out of ideas.

Can you recreate your issue with the sample database and attach the report?

Here you go.

Our users use IE. So, I didn't take the time to make this cross-browser. It only works in IE.

Interesting. You could get around this by putting the detail crosstab in a 150px height grid and setting the grid cell's overflow property to "scroll"

I tried that originally and couldn't get it to work. Now, I can get rid of the javascript and use the cell overflow and it works.

I don't know why I couldn't get it to work at first, I must have been missing something.

Thank you for your help.
