Property values

Type: long

the distance, in pixels.





This property's value equals the current horizontal offset of the content within the scrollable range. Although you can set this property to any value, if you assign a value less than 0, the property is set to 0. If you assign a value greater than the maximum value, the property is set to the maximum value.

This property is always 0 for objects that do not have scroll bars. For these objects, setting the property has no effect.

When a marquee object scrolls vertically, its IHTMLElement2::scrollLeft property is set to 0.
