    Possible to hide part of a Div?

    Hello,

    I have a .swf in a Div and I need to hide about 100 pixels on the left hand side.

    Is this possible?

    Thanks.

    Hi there davidwhite,

    The following example works in all browsers, except Safari, for which I was unable to find a solution.
    Code:
    
    <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN"
       "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd">
    <html lang="en">
    <head>
    
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">
    <meta name="language" content="english"> 
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Style-Type" content="text/css">
    
    <title></title>
    
    <style type="text/css">
    #swf-holder {
        width:200px;
        border:1px solid #000;
        margin:auto;
        overflow:hidden;
     }
    #swf-holder object {
        display:block;
        width:300px;
        height:200px; 
        border:0; 
        margin-left:-100px;
     }
    </style>
    
    </head>
    <body>
    
    <div id="swf-holder">
    
    <object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="http://www.coothead.co.uk/images/smiles.swf">
     <param name="movie" value="http://www.coothead.co.uk/images/smiles.swf">
    </object>
    
    </div>
    
    </body>
    </html>

    Thanks but it doesn't seem to work in Firefox or Chrome either - just in IE.

    Hi there davidwhite,

    The code that I supplied was tested successfully in the following browsers...

    1. IE9
    2. Firefox 18.0
    3. Opera 12.12
    4. Chrome 24.0.1312.52


    Safari 5.1.7 would not render "overflow:hidden".

    Using position:absolute; in the CSS allows you to overlap divs with z-index settings.
