how to increase height of a parent div

Hello Experts,

I have 2 html files:

Parent:
            <div id="mainframe" style="height:120px; width:500px">                
                <iframe class="login" src="login.html" scrolling="no" frameborder="0" width="100%" height="100%" >
                </iframe>
             </div>  

Child: (login.html)

I call this script in the the <body onload>:

function resizeFrame()
{
      if ($('#mainframe',window.parent.document).length > 0)
      {      
            $('#mainframe',window.parent.document).attr("style","height:220px; width:500px");
      }      
}

The purpose of this script is to resize the div that wraps the iframe (as I need to float the iframe at the top of the screen).  For some reason my jquery isn't resizing the mainframe.  What am I doing wrong?

Thanks

Try calling resizeFrame after the document fully loads. Of course then you'll need to cause the page to refresh with the changes. More jQuery can do that for you.

http://docs.jquery.com/Tutorials:Introducing_$(document).ready()

Read the above. It might solve your problem. It may introduce a new one though that the page needs to redraw. jQuery easily solves this so just Google jQuery and page refresh.

Hi,
I already call this when the page loads:

i.e. (login.html)
<body onLoad="resizeFrame();">

I have also tried putting the jquery wrapper
i.e.

$(function() {
      if ($('#mainframe',window.parent.document).length > 0)
      {      
            $('#mainframe',window.parent.document).attr("style","height:320px; width:500px");
      }      
});

However, the only thing that happens (when either are used) is the parent div closes - which leads me to believe that the way I am trying to adjust the height is wrong and maybe removing the height/width due to this.

Any other ideas?

Actually, the way I was adjusting the height was incorrect. It should have been

eg
$('#mainframe',window.parent.document).height(320);
