Hide scroll bar from the web window

We have our application working on Oracle forms 10g hosted on unix application server.
We have a requirement to hide the vertical scroll bar which appears on the web page(not on the form)

Is there a server config setting which can be done to hide the vertical scroll bar appearing on the web page.
Scrollbar does not appear on chrome. Issue is coming only when application is opened in IE

Thanks in advance

    Hello
    It's the issue of browser. There is no setting for it. most probably you are not using
    separateFrame=True
    in you formweb.cfg file. It's allow the applet opening in another window.

    In you issue, may be you have toolbar visible in the browser. if you use the browser full screen you didn't get that.

    Hope this helps

    The browser scroll bar appears automatically when the content of the browser extends the size of the browser window.

    More than likely, you have toolbars displayed in IE that are not displayed in Chrome. You could information your IE users to turn off these toolbars or I suppose you could use Windows Group Policies to disable all toolbars or only certain toolbars so the size of your Forms application doesn't cause a scrollbar to display.

    The other option would be to resize your Forms application to account for the extra toolbars in IE, but this would not be my first choise.
