Hello Everyone,

Below is the html page I created where there is a div container. In the div container, there are 4 divs with textboxes. The div container with is 100%. But when I resize the browser, the 4 divs overlapses. What would I like to do is to have a left-right scroller in the web browser to maintain the div container.

Can you please give me some advice on this? Please review the html

Thanks in advance.

well i think that this is just a css thing so try this:

create a css statement like this...

div.quarter {

then apply that css to the div that surrounds the (surname-placeofbirth) and (sex-bloodtype) and (text-text) and (no-no). then save and test. you might have to change the min-width to a smaller or larger value. i did try to do a 25% for the min-width but it didn't work so go with the pixel setting.

there is an issue where your "text" div's coming under the 2nd column (sex-bloodtype), this may be by design, but it does move the columns as the window gets smaller.

let me know if this doesn't work for you
