Div doesn't resize until page refresh - CSS

Hi. I am using a javascript text scroller which in turn scrolls text within a DIV element. The DIV is specified using CSS:

#pscroller1
{
width: 95%;
height: 15%;
padding: 5px;
overflow: visible;
border: 0px solid #000000;
}

My problem is that when the window is made smaller/bigger, the div doesn't change its' size until the page is refreshed. Anyone know how to do this automatically?

You mean the browser window right?

If you have set the width as a percentage then it should re-size automatically. Do you have something I could look at to see this problem in more detail?

replace <html> with:

newer browsers should allow for auto width based on %
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"
   "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en">

@Eternal_Student:

Yes, I mean the browser window.

See www.csgshow.org for what I'm talking about. The scroller is in the upper-left corner of the page beneath the main links.

If it is the scrolling link area... then your ID# is wrapper or wrapper2 NOT #pscroller :)

Style.css

I added #wrapper

#wrapper
{
width: 95%;
height: 200px;
padding: 5px;
overflow: visible;
border: 0px solid #000000;
}


you could also revert to %

#wrapper
{
width: 95%;
height: 15%;
padding: 5px;
overflow: visible;
border: 0px solid #000000;
}
html, body, ul, li, h1, h2, h3, h4 {

It seems to me that the problem is the scroller script itself. This line sets the width of the elements to a fixed width when the script initializes.

this.visiblediv.style.width=this.hiddendiv.style.width=this.tickerdiv.offsetWidth-(this.visibledivtop*2)+"px"

Try adding the following code block after this line:

new pausescroller(pausecontent, "pscroller1", "someclass", 5800)
window.onresize = function(){
  var tickerid = "pscroller1";
 
  tickerdiv=document.getElementById(tickerid);
 
  visiblediv=document.getElementById(tickerid+"1");
 
  hiddendiv=document.getElementById(tickerid+"2");
 
  visibledivtop=parseInt(pausescroller.getCSSpadding(tickerdiv));
 
  //set width of inner DIVs to outer DIV's width minus padding (padding assumed to be top padding x 2)
 
  visiblediv.style.width=hiddendiv.style.width=tickerdiv.offsetWidth-(visibledivtop*2)+"px";
}
