The Javascript 1.2 object Screen has the properties:

availHeigth : the available height of the screen
availWidth : the available width of the screen
width : the total width of the screen, in pixels
height: the total height of the screen, in pixels

wich maintain information about the screen on which the browser is displayed.

You can access the e.g.:

var f = screen.height;

and so on.

There are also some other usefull properties of the screen object:

screen.availLeft : the first available pixel on the left

screen.availTop : the first available pixel on the top

screen.colorDepth: the depth of the browser's color palette

screen.pixelDepth: the bits-per-pixel value for the screen

Javascript programs can use this information to optimize output. Keep in min, however, that this are properties of the object "screen" which is an object of Javascript 1.2 specification.

Older browsers can access this object and there's no other method to get these informations.

I suggest you to check browser compatibility through the code i've already posted here in Exp-Exc in Front Page topic for the question "IE and Netscrape....".

Regarding your answer,Can I control these parameters inside Front Page Editor 2000 with GUI or do I have to code it in HTML?

Thanks again

If you mean that in the preview mode you can already use the properties, the answer is yes.

In fact, FrontPage use in preview mode tha same activeX (or COM component, if you prefer so) of Internet Explorer (5.0). Infact, when you install Office 2000, you must update to Explorer 5.0.

On the contrary, i don't remember if there is a wizard which allow you to control these properties (and i've never searched for it, honestly) like some properties of CSS.

At a first look, i don't think there's one, also because this is a Javascript feature, and also with CSS FP2000 don't allow much easy control.
