Home › Forums › CSS › Position div fixed relative to parent?
i seem to notice that position: fixed is relative to whole body/html. can i position an element fixed relative to an element?
markup is something like
<div class="bbcode_code_body" style="white-space:pre"><div id="wrapper">
<div id="main" />
<div id="sidebar" />
wrapper is centered
i want to position sidebar fixed relative to the wrapper/current position. so scrolling will only affect div#main
nope – fixed is always relative to the browser window :)
If you want to do it inside a box, use absolute – but then it will scroll with teh box… lol
