Using Javascript's cloneNode to create scrollable Gridview in 2.0

Sample Image - ScrollingGridView.gif


  Using Javascript's cloneNode ,we can clone a table's header,so we can make a gridview to be scrollable.This method isn't set some long css.

  In 2.0's Page_Load event,we must add style for GridView, and this MUST for IE and Firefox can work!

  protected void Page_Load( object sender, EventArgs e )
    if (!IsPostBack)
      GridView1.Attributes.Add("style", "table-layout:fixed");
      GridView1.DataSource = CreateDataSource();

 Next,we must add some javascript for it:

function start()
 var t = document.getElementById("<%=GridView1.ClientID%>");
 var t2 = t.cloneNode(true)
 for(i = t2.rows.length -1;i > 0;i--)
window.onload = start
