[CLOSED] [3.0RC2] scrollbars on panel cover panel contents with anchor layout
Here it was posted before on Ext 2.2 http://extjs.com/forum/showthread.php?t=51381
I think this can now be fixed with Ext.Element.isScrollable()
As suggested in that thread, there's no reliable cross browser method of determining if a scroll bar is visible. Marking this closed.
