Hello Experts,

I have a joomla page with 3 divs inlie, left ad right have fixed width, but left one shows only on a single page. My question, how can i make middle (center) div be resized automatically to largest width?
Example:
Div left(100px)>Div center (maximum) >Div right (100px)
Div center (Maximum)> Div right(100px)

Code attached

Thanks for assistance...
Index.php

<?php if($this->countModules('right')) : ?>
			 	<div id="rightmodules">
					<jdoc:include type="modules" name="right" style="module" />
	        	</div>
	        	<?php endif; ?>
				<div id="maincontent"><jdoc:include type="component" /></div>
				<?php if($this->countModules('left')) : ?>
			 	<div id="leftmodules">
					<jdoc:include type="modules" name="left" style="module" />
	        	</div>
	        	<?php endif; ?>	


CSS
#leftmodules {
	float:right;
	width:222px;
	margin-right:10px;
}

#maincontent {
	float:right;
	display:block;
	margin-left:auto;
	margin-right:auto;
	border:1px solid red;
	margin-top:10px;
}

#rightmodules {
	float:right;
	width:222px;
	margin-left:10px;
}

I assume you need middle div to fill all available space between side-divs.
Try this:
<!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">
<head>
<meta name="generator" content="HTML Tidy for Linux (vers 6 November 2007), see www.w3.org" />
<style type="text/css">
#leftmodules {
	float:left;
	width:222px;
	background:yellow;
}

#maincontent {
	display:block;
	margin-left:224px;
	margin-right:224px;
	border:1px solid red;
	margin-top:10px;
	background:pink;
}

#rightmodules {
	float:right;
	width:222px;
	background:red;
}
html, body {width:100%;heigh:100%;}
#wrap {width:100%;}
</style>
<title></title>
</head>
<body>
<div id="wrap" >
<div id="leftmodules">

could you set the middle to have a width of 100%?

#maincontent {
      float:right;
      display:block;
      margin-left:auto;
      margin-right:auto;
      border:1px solid red;
      margin-top:10px;
        width="100%"

}

SSupreme:

That not a solution, cause it makes 224px margin to the sides.

it size of side-div+border, you can make side-div with width 100px without any boarder and make margin for middle-div equal to 100px. I guess you didn't check the result, because "it makes 224px margin to the sides"  is a solution for making divs display inline one next to another.

I made it like this: 1 by 1, 3 in lineor you want full (maximum page width) middle width: side-divs on top of middle, but middle div is full widthI drop a little side-divs so you can see that middle div is full (maximum) width of page:

Ill try to explain my question once again.

I have div left div center and div right.
Left and Right divs has fixed size, center div should be maximum width.

Problem, left div sown only one ONE page, so toher will have center div and right div.
Problem, center div not resized to fill left div space

So you want left div to be shown on one page, and center div and right div on another page.
What do you mean by "largest width"?

page one: (left div 220px) (center div maximum width "automatically set to 560px") (right div 220px) (global for all width 1000px)

page two: (NO LEFT DIV) (center div maximum width "automatically set to 780px") (right div 220px) (global for all width 1000px)

I need center be ALWAYS maximum free width, but dynamically change his width in case left div enabled

Or even this one, it checks for any missing side-div, so even if right div is missing, it will expand to max with left-div:
