I have a solution to a problem that has been closed in a previous post but i am not sure how i can contribute this to the experts community otherwise...


iframe in firefox does not size to 100%
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Web/Q_21300606.html


function calcHeight(name)
{
  //find the height of the internal page
  document.getElementById(name).height = 0;
     
  var the_height=
    document.getElementById(name).contentWindow.
      document.body.scrollHeight;

  //change the height of the iframe
  document.getElementById(name).height=
      the_height;
}


<iframe id="main" name="main" onLoad="calcHeight('main');" src="yourcontent.htm" height="100" width="100%" style="border:0px" FRAMEBORDER="0" scrolling="no"></iframe>


-----


it seems to not work though if you use the following in the pages:



<style type="text/css">
<!--
html, body {
height: 100%;
margin: 0;
padding: 0;
}
-->
</style>

Have you tried adding marginwidth=1 marginheight=1 on the iframe definition?  I know you have defined that you have no borders, but you never know.  I also assume you meant to type height="100%" and not just "100".

Ah, I think I understand.  You are not asking "How to ..."  You found a solution and want to let everybody else know.

Looking at your prior question it seems that you found what the solution was to your own question.  You posted your finding in that question.  That is all you need to do.  If somebody else is having the same problem, when they do a search they should find your prior question with the appropriate answer (that you found on your own).

I believe the original poster was actually giving the community a solution, not requesting help.
