Hi there;

<div id="myDiv" style="height: 100vh; zoom: 1; overflow: auto; " runat="server">

Open in new window


I have a div as above and I want to set the height of that div with the size of user agent, IE or chrome.

But, when it's resized, I want to see the scrollbar in which overflow:auto should do the trick. But not working when I set it with vh..

Is there a way to grab and set the browser height to my div gently?

Regards.

I'm not sure I understand the question 100vh should be setting the div to 100% of the height of the viewport, and the overflow auto could generate scroll bars either vertically of horizontally if the content of the dive is larger than the viewport.

Without a link to the page it is impossible to know everything that might be affecting the rendering.  BTW vh is not support in older browsers.

Partially support in IE9 and IE10, fully support in IE11.  Not support in IE prior to IE9

My experience with it in IE9 and IE10 is that it gets it right most of the time put gets it wrong when there is a calculation involved.
