Using the HTML Overflow Property

How to:

When you ran your application, you may have noticed that the HTML table took up enough room to display all of the rows in GetFanStack. If you wish, you can change the HTML table so that it takes up a defined amount of space and has scroll bars so that end users can view rows that do not fit in the space.

This enables you to place information under the HTML table without having to worry about whether the HTML table overlaps it.
