Scroll jumping on asynchronous update

This discussion is related to the Van2Shout addon.

I have a strange bug, if the conversation is too long for the whole of it to display, I have scrollbars appearing, so far so good.
only, if I scroll all the way down (newest shout) it jumps back up about 1/10 of the scroll way (hiding the newest post) on the asynchronous update.
any idea about this or can I provide more info somehow?

  • @peregrine: no it is not, it is located in the sidebar however.
    Ah, it could be that this has something to do with line breaks.. seems it jumps to the Name of the last comment, and not simply the last line of the last comment. in multiline comments this breaks things.

    You could try messing with discussioncontroller.php in the views of the plugin- just a guess.

    function UpdateShoutbox()

    and add or subtract a few pixels to obj.scrollTop (whichever it may be.)
    
    
    if(scrolldown == true)
                {
                    obj.scrollTop = obj.scrollHeight;
                }

  • This problem has been reported more then once, and I am sorry to have to tell you I have absolutely no idea why this is happening or how to fix it. The word-wrap might be a good start, but for I all understood the above code should still scroll to the bottom...
