From main jsp page I am calling the "openNewWin()" javascript, which will open a new jsp page(sample.jsp).
sample.jsp has more fields and the page is little bit long. And I am using the <DIV> tag for the vertical scroll bar and it's working fine.
But the issue is, sample.jsp page has more fields and while submitting I am doing the validation and if any of the field is empty, I am the using alert message to correct it.
Whenver, alert message popup opens the entire content inside the <DIV> tag moves down and causing a huge blank space at the top.
If I scroll the page (not with vertical scrollbar, using the mouse and draging on the page down) I can able to see the DIV content along with the vertical scrollbar.
If I removed the DIV tag, even on the alert popup message on validation it's not moving down. So the issue is with the DIV.
PLease help to advice whether am I using the DIV tag correctly?
How to fix this issue? I am using IE 7.0 browser.
