Detect browser screen resolution on the fly using AJAX?
Posted on 2006-06-26
Looks like the widescreen monitors will become more and more popular. For a 20" widescreen monitor, the default resolution is 1680 wide. This will affect how the web site look. My pony tail marketing people pointed out that my pages are too wide spread after looking at my 20" monitor.
My site are written in php. I am wondering if it is possible to send the screen resolution back to the server using AJAX before the body of the pages are sent. I have no idea about java script nor understand much about AJAX. I dislike the idea about relocating a page in order to send back the resolution. I will have to accept this if AJAX can not be used for this purpose. I need to consider the end users using non-java browser such as lynx.
