Hi, I have a page with data like this.


----------------------------------------------------1st paragraph

---------table

------2nd paragraph


I want on page scroll, the table headers to remain fixed until table data is over and it reached second paragraph.
Any way to do this? I dont want to do another scroll in table body. One scroll for whole page

dont have it live anywhere.however i want to ask u sthg.

what does $("#maintable") stand for? what is it different then $("maintable")??
what is it different then document.getelementbyid("maintable")

my main problem is $("#maintable") is being null.but $("maintable") exists..

$("#maintable") gives you a jQuery wrapper of the element that has that id. document.getElementById("maintable") is that element. You can also get it with $("#maintable")[0] . $("maintable") is something different, it gives you a wrapper of the elements that have the tag name maintable ( <maintable /> ), that should be 0 elements.

The main problem is line 25. The window isn't loaded yet, so that fails. It should be:

$(function() { $(window).scroll(moveScroll); });

This makes it wait until the document has been fully loaded.

This is a working code. Now my challenge is, the scroll is in div not window.
So am using $("#divId").scroll(moveScroll);
var scroll = $("#divId").scrollTop();

var anchor_top = $("#maintable").offset().top;

here the problem lies, on scroll $("#maintable").offset().top keeps changing.While in my working example above ( when scroll is in window) $("#maintable").offset().top is same everytime I alert it.

I think thats why in a div scroll code aint working, while in a window it is.

I have attached to you a picture of how its looking in ie.


the table is being duplicated, you have first table and cloned table below it.
whereas in firefox you have first table and clone table on top of it and freezing header is working
http://www.webdeveloper.com/forum/attachment.php?attachmentid=14277&d=1309355899

do note col1 col2 col3 are the headers in that screen.there is two of them , one in first table and two in cloned table.
here is pic of first table
