I have a DIV wrapper incorporating the various controls on and asp.net master page. I'd like to access the DIV height from the content page and programmatically change that height prior to pre-rendering the page. Is this doable?

Yes, it is doable. You just need to get the Id of that div, and then you can get or set its height

alert( document.getElementById("divId").style.height ); //getting the height
document.getElementById("divId").style.height = "100px"; //setting the height

I think this might work but I am not familiar with javascript. Is there a VB.NET counterpart? Or can you be a little more explicit as to what javascript code goes on the master page and what goes on the content page to access the DIV's properties?.

I have no experience in VB.net, so Sorry, can't suggest anything else.
