I have a child window which contains dynamic tables, the width of the child is ok but sometimes the table length is greater than the window length and i would rather resize the window to show all the content than require the user to scroll to access the functions in the page.

Thanks

hi Jester_48, here is example, you can change numbers, to correct with your window:
==============================================================
<script>
function runit()
{
      var dynTable=document.getElementById("dynTable");
      window.resizeTo(dynTable.scrollWidth+100,dynTable.scrollHeight+200)
}
</script>
<table id=dynTable width=555 height=300 cellspacing=0 cellpadding=0 border=1>
      <td>&nbsp;</td>
</table>
<button onclick=runit()>runit</button>
