The equivalent of window.innerWidth for IE ?

Hi,

I'm using window.innerWidth with Netscape to get the width of the window. But it does not work with IE. The same problem occurs with window.innerHeight.
Any suggestion for IE?
Kind Regards
Stephane

You can use:
document.body.clientHeight
document.body.clientWidth
in IE4+

By the way I would like to make this function work for IE...


// Display the properties of a layer
function displayProperties(layer) {
  if (nsBrowser()) {
    var str = "";
    for (var p in layer) {
      str += p + " : " + layer[p] + "\n";
      }
    alert(str);
    }
  else if (ieBrowser()) {
    }
  }

Many thanks anyway.

hmm...  it's hard to tell exactly what you're doing here without seeing more of the code.  I can say that testing with nsBrowser and ieBrowser (obviously previously set variables) isn't necesary, and not always the best depending on the test.

Instead you should test like this (when dealing with layers):
if (document.layers) //netscape
 {

 }
else if (document.all) //ie
 {

 }

I should think that the code would be the same for both however.  Just that setting the variable 'layer' needs to be different.  Oh, and BTW, layer is not a good name since it used by netscape.

The setting of the variable should look something like this:

if (document.layers) //netscape
 {
  myLayer = document.layers.layername.document;
 }
else if (document.all) //ie
 {
  myLayer = document.all.layername;
 }

I'm not sure if this will give you the exact same results since the two browsers work quite a bit differently with dhtml.  Also you have to be sure to create the browser in a cross platform way with div tags...

Anyway, if you have further questions on this, you should open a new question.  I gave you this info free :)
