Hello,

I want to write a simple asp.net app. I have my default page where I will put my details. However, when it loads, I do not want to be shown in full screen of the browser. Instead it should be in a controlled manner. Lets say I want the browser to be resized to 800x600(just like you have popups). Is there a way to control this?


Thanks

No.  You are running in a sandbox that allows only read-only access to such attributes.  With a JavaScript popup window you can set the height width however most people block popups because they can be dangerous and are definitely annoying.

If you are only concerned that your details do not stretch, you could wrap your details in a DIV tag and give the tag a defined width.

Hi Shaun,
Yes my concern is only for details not to stretch. Shaun can you please elaborate a bit or script that for me so that I know how that can be accomplished?

Thanks.

If you are working in ASP.NET then use a Panel tag and set the width attribute.  The Panel is converted to a DIV in ASP.NET.

An Ajax ModalPopup is totally resizable and doesn't alarm popup blockers.

As tedbilly said, a Panel control will work. If you have web accessibility concerns try to avoid using a table for layout purposes, as it requires additional configuration so that screen readers can handle them.

For some reason I couldnt get this work to my favour.

Can somebody please tell me how to put a table that will have a fixed size on the browser(not matter what screen size it is). Lets say I want a table always having 800x600 size. ?

Try this:
<table width="800">
<tr height="600">
<td width="100%"><!-- Content Here --></td>
</tr>
</table>

You have to add style='table-layout:fixed' otherwise the table can grow.  The width and height are actually "minimum" values, not guaranteed to stay that size if you put an image larger than 800 it will grow bigger unless you use the style setting I provided.

Thanks. The key was setting up the table to fixed.
