Hi all,

Please see the attached code snippet.  I'm trying to resize a div element to take up all available screen space to minimize scroll bars.  This works fine in IE but  not in NN or FF.  Can anyone push me in the right direction?

Thanks,

dds


function resizeContent()
{
    var NS = document.all;
    try
    {
        document.getElementById("divContent").style.height=(!NS)?window.innerHeight - 85:document.body.clientHeight - 85;
        //document.getElementById("tdContent").style.height=(!NS)?window.innerHeight - 101:document.body.clientHeight - 101;
    }
    catch(err){alert(err);}
}

Oh yeah, I should have mentioned the error I'm getting; here it is:

Warning: Error in parsing value for property 'height'.  Declaration dropped.

height etc in ff cant be just number. it has to end with pt or px. So you cant do height=5 but height =5pt .

Try this line instead for ff


document.getElementById("divContent").style.height=(!NS)?(window.innerHeight - 85)+"pt":(document.body.clientHeight - 85)+"pt";
