Hi, I am not quite sure how to explain this. I am not very good in Dreamweaver.

What I am trying to do is emulate what Joomla can do when you load a wrapper (external application) in a module (web page). I have an app written in php/mysql and there are several screens to the app. Each one is a different length. I want a page to adjust itself to the length of the application automatically (I will set a fixed width).

I have set a background with a sliced repeating gradient and I want to have a white page on top of this background, then have this php application run "inside" or on the white part of the page.

To see what I mean, although the php app is not on this page, please see aearo3m.com/index.php

Any help would be much appreciated.

Hi cafulford,

I'm not sure what I'm supposed to be looking at.  You talk about horizontal expansion but reference length (which implies vertical measurement).

Can you rephrase this?

Commented:
so your php app will not be visable then why not create a page in dw for all the pages ie control the php by using html to view the php

Thanks for the replies...Jason, I am sorry, I meant vertical. Basically, I want to have the gradient background, which I have set fine, and my application to "run" in a table maybe?? but have the table be a flexible height and adjust as needed vertically.

Ian, is that what you meant?

Thanks...
