Scrollable HTML Table with fixed header in javascript

Horizontal and Vertical scrolling table with static header row.Fixed headers in large HTML tables.static header in table through java script.

I was looking for a solution for this for a long time and found most of the answers are not working or not suitable for my situation i also find most of the java script code for that they worked but only with the vertical scroll not with the horizontal scroll and also combination of header and rows doesn't match.

I wrote this article for the best solution and i tested it at all browser IE 7,IE  8 with compatibility and normal mode,Firefox,Opera etc.
Steps include:-
  • Copying table into divHeaderRow show only header,hide all rows and applying style to it so that divHeaderRow placed onto the top of the table header row.
  • If isFooter is true then Copying table Footer row into divFooterRow and applying style to divFooterRow.
Copy and paste given bellow javascript code inside the <head> tag.

<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
    function MakeStaticHeader(gridId, height, width, headerHeight, isFooter) {
        var tbl = document.getElementById(gridId);
        if (tbl) {
        var DivHR = document.getElementById('DivHeaderRow');
        var DivMC = document.getElementById('DivMainContent');
        var DivFR = document.getElementById('DivFooterRow');

        //*** Set divheaderRow Properties ****
        DivHR.style.height = headerHeight + 'px';
        DivHR.style.width = (parseInt(width) - 16) + 'px';
        DivHR.style.position = 'relative';
        DivHR.style.top = '0px';
        DivHR.style.zIndex = '10';
        DivHR.style.verticalAlign = 'top';

        //*** Set divMainContent Properties ****
        DivMC.style.width = width + 'px';
        DivMC.style.height = height + 'px';
        DivMC.style.position = 'relative';
        DivMC.style.top = -headerHeight + 'px';
        DivMC.style.zIndex = '1';

        //*** Set divFooterRow Properties ****
        DivFR.style.width = (parseInt(width) - 16) + 'px';
        DivFR.style.position = 'relative';
        DivFR.style.top = -headerHeight + 'px';
        DivFR.style.verticalAlign = 'top';
        DivFR.style.paddingtop = '2px';

        if (isFooter) {
         var tblfr = tbl.cloneNode(true);
      tblfr.removeChild(tblfr.getElementsByTagName('tbody')[0]);
         var tblBody = document.createElement('tbody');
         tblfr.style.width = '100%';
         tblfr.cellSpacing = "0";
         //*****In the case of Footer Row *******
         tblBody.appendChild(tbl.rows[tbl.rows.length - 1]);
         tblfr.appendChild(tblBody);
         DivFR.appendChild(tblfr);
         }
        //****Copy Header in divHeaderRow****
        DivHR.appendChild(tbl.cloneNode(true));
     }
    }
