    Hi, is it possible to scroll to the bottom of a HTMLPlaceHolder in code?

    I am adding to the HTMLSource and the HTMLPlaceHolder  always scrolls to the top?

    Before I tried to place the HTMLPlaceHolder   within a ScrollViewer but then it is impossible to get rid of the HTMLPlaceHolder Scrollbars.  I will get a double set of scrollbars.  It is no problem to scroll to the bottom of the ScrollViewer.

    I tried unsuccessfully to wire this up in the Page_Load event to get rid of the HTMLPlaceHolder scrollbar 

     (radHtmlPlaceholder1.HtmlPresenter.Children[0] as HtmlElement).SetAttribute("scrolling", "no");

    Well, it seems there is a simple solution.

    I went through all the posts here on this Forum  and used my trusted source Google.

    I host the Html Placeholder in a ScrollView.

           <ScrollViewer Height="122" HorizontalAlignment="Left" Margin="41,66,0,0" 
                Name="scrollStoryboard"     VerticalAlignment="Top"         Width="514">
                <telerik:RadHtmlPlaceholder Name="radHtmlStoryboard" />

    Then on OnNavigatedTo event of my page I do a quick hide and show on the Placeholder and set the scolling and overflow properties.  I should be able to set these properties on the OnLoad event but it does not work.

                radHtmlStoryboard.Visibility = System.Windows.Visibility.Collapsed;
                radHtmlStoryboard.Visibility = System.Windows.Visibility.Visible;
                (radHtmlStoryboard.HtmlPresenter.Children[0] as HtmlElement).SetAttribute("scrolling", "no");
                (radHtmlStoryboard.HtmlPresenter.Children[0] as HtmlElement).SetAttribute("overflow", "visible");

    And whenever I write something to the HtmlSource, I call the UpdateLayout followed by the ScrollToVerticalOffset on the ScrollView

                        htmlText = transcript .MessageText  + "<br/>";
                        radHtmlStoryboard.HtmlSource += htmlText;


    This works like a charm and scrolls to the bottom every time. The overflow property is needed if the output is too wide for the HtmlPlaceholder and forces a wrap on the HtmlPlaceholder and then a vertical scrollbar would appear.
