Is there a way to find the "inner" width and height of a window, without all the menu bars, tool bars, status lines, buttons, etc.

I would like just the available real estate for my graphics.

Thanks!

Not sure if this is the best way to do it, but try this.




html_tag=document.body.parentNode;
html_tag.clientWidth;
html_tag.clientHeight;



works in ie 6/7, firefox

That's a neat trick, but...

It returns the BODY width & height, which is not the "visible" usable document area inside the browser window (minus toolbars, status bar, etc)

In my case, the body is larger than the window.

It shouldn't return the body.

It should return the body's parent node which is html.

html_tag=document.body.parentNode;


why don't you post the code?
