From the active cable chatroom series how to I fix the size of the chatroom and scroll

Javascript • Asked by John A. Cogan

I have implemented the chatroom but I want the chatroom area to be fixed and for the user to be able to scroll back through the messages.
How can I add scrolling? I have tried added it to the panel the contains the chat but it is ignored? Any ideas?

I know Slack uses flexbox to do their layout. Something like this codepen:

Scrolling should be automatic if you have enough messages in the view. You can also force the scroll bar by adding overflow-y: scroll.
