  • It might depend on the actual content or HTML code you are using, most of the time you need a DIV that wraps the content as follows:

    <div style="height:50px;width:100px;overflow-y:scroll;overflow-x:hidden;">
    <!-- your large scrollable content here -->
    </div>

    If you want the vertical scroll to show, the content has to exceed the pixel height of the container, but you need to always set a fixed height to the container, otherwise, the container will resize to the size of the content and the scroll will never show up.
