Hi Experts,

I'm starting a new portal site, having lots of dynamic content, with dropdowns, lists, etc... Sort of like EE, but much busier.

How hard is it to make it fit 100% in width in any browser, in any resolution?

not hard at all.

I would set a class say full width:


.FullWidth
{
   width: 100%
}

then you can specify the class FullWidth for any object you need it on, including your <td>s and what not.

Hope that helps.

but, what about if I had a row of dropdowns... Wouldn't for lower resolutions, some of these dropdowns fall on the row below?

yes, but thats then its not really just about the width. its about the design of the whole website.
for a website to 'fit' any resolution I suggest you use a responsive design.  this isn't just about fitting things across the across, but laying them out differently depending on the screen width.

As you suggest a large screen can have many menu items, whereas a small res screen will probably double up the menus and overlap them.  So you need to use CSS to readjust the layout for different screen resolutions.

To get started try  version 3 of Bootstrap this is a framework that will let you design a responsive website site.  its all explained at this site    http://getbootstrap.com
