iFrame CSS height as percent parameters in IE

Hello Experts,

I'm working with I frames for the first time.  Is there a way to make the css style height:100% work with IE?  It works fine with Chrome and I assume with Firefox.  In IE the height parameter is ignored and the content displays short with scroll bars.

Any ideas on how to get around this without having to use a height in pixels.  The content in the ifraBody will change whenever a navbutton is pressed.

Thanks

Hi,

There's a few reasons leading to this situation. First, you might need to put <iframe> out of <div> tags at it would limit it's height also. Second, you might need to use position:absolute; if you want to use <div> as height:100%; will work correctly in it and you also have to remove the float in it and replace with the top and left to reposition it correctly like this:

<style type="text/css">
#ifraNav {
position:absolute;
height:100%;
width: 220px;
padding:0px, 0px, 0px, 0px;
margin:0px,0px,0px,3px;
overflow:auto;
background-color:#D9CB78;
border:none;

}
#ifraBody {
position:absolute;
left:250px;
width:600px;
height:100%; 
padding:0px, 0px, 0px, 0px;
margin:0px,0px,0px,0px;
overflow:auto;
color:#673723;
background-color:#D9CB78;
border:none;
}
</style>
