This little guy isn't actually part of w3c spec, but it is supported by IE and Firefox and can be very handy. This method is inherited by any visible DOM element and when it is called will cause the page/frame/div to scroll until that element is in view.I'll admit, I've only use the bugger once, but it is surely useful. There's really not much else to say about it. The example where I used it is at http://www.diamondtbucket.com/index.cfm?do=parts. When using the "Previous" and "Next" buttons in the upper right corner of the screen, the part being viewed will scroll into view if necessary in the div to the left. Here's an example lifted from developer.mozilla.org:

The para to show


[code]<script type="text/javascript">
	function showIt(elID)
		{
			var el = document.getElementById(elID);
			el.scrollIntoView(true);
		}
</script>

<div style="height: 100px; width: 300px; overflow: scroll;">
	<div style="height: 200px"></div>
	<p id="pToShow">The para to show</p>
	<div style="height: 200px"></div>
</div>
<br>
<input type="button" value="Show para" onclick="showIt('pToShow');">


[/code]
