Automatic height on layout

Posted on 2007-12-04

I have the following layout with iframes:


Each content page (home, about us, local moves etc) has different height (short content - long content on each one).  How could I make the whole layout adjust to the height of the content so at the bottom you don't see all the blank space?

This may help you

"resizeIframe()" is the one that adjust the height of the IFrame
<script type="text/javascript">
function resizeIframe() {
	// Must launched on the body onload event handler for IE
	// Use document.documentElement if you are in Compat mode
	i = parent.document.getElementById(window.name)
	iHeight = document.body.scrollHeight
	i.style.height = iHeight + 5 + "px"

Open in new window

Thanks for the respond,

I've placed the script on the main index that holds everything and nothing happens, I've also placed the script on the content page and nothing happens neither

I see that.
Now I know that your Iframe resize is working
You see large blank space because, it is from content page

I'll check it soon.

you're right...there is some space within the page (lot of <br>) but I had to forcely do it so the content will be correctly.  Somehow I have to fix this first to see the automatic height working...

Do you happen to know how I could fix all those spaces? I could place a new question to reward you the points since it maybe consider a new question.....let me know please
