View Full Version : variable height of an iframe based on top and bottom locations
05-14-2007, 08:50 PM
Hey, this works in firefox, but not IE - I was wondering if anyone knows of an alternative. I have an iframe that i want to position say 100px from the top and 50px from the bottom of the page, if put top:100px; bottom:50px; height:*; it works fine in firefox but IE doesn't seem to recognize * as a valid value for height. is there something else i can do? I also tried 100% hoping it would just use up "100% of it's available space" but it lines up with the top and then goes beyond the bottom of the page.
you can see the site in question at www.mzcontrols.com

i used code from this post:
but changed frmname.document.body.scrollHeight+20 to
so it's basically 100% minus the height of my header and footer. though i'd still like a better way, that will resize with the window if the browser is resized.. anyone?
thanks in advance...
