This one should be simple, but I just can't find the answer.  How do you size the browser Window in both Netscape and IE, or are there different tags for each browser?  I believe this is an attribute of the <Body> tag, is it not?

//window.resizeBy(<width>,<height>);
window.resizeBy(300,-100);

resizing browsers thru the window object, nothing to do with the body tag.

the code is cross-browser =)
window.resizeTo is an absolute method
window.resizeBy is a relative method

Brandon, I think perhaps what the questioner was getting at is that if someone was using a script like you posted, it migth be called on the "onLoad" event of the body tag, correct?


<html>
<head>

<script language="javascript">
function resize()
{
//window.resizeTo(<width>,<height>);
window.resizeTo(400,500);
}
</script>

</head>

<body onLoad="resize();">

</body>
</html>

the methods do not need to be called after the body is loaded. the methods can be called at any point in time.

<html>
<head>

<script language="javascript">

//window.resizeTo(<width>,<height>);
window.resizeTo(400,500);

</script>

</head>

<body>

</body>
</html>

It's not an attribute of the body tag, but offcourse you can call it from the body tag...

You don't need to use a different function to do it either...

You could just use:

<body onload="window.resizeTo(400,500)">

Mind the capital T...
