View Full Version : is there a hack for IE to do min-height?

I have need to use the min height attrubute but IE doesn't seem to like it - it just ignores it.

Is there a hack or something that would help?

Min/max-height does not work in IE.

You don't need JS to do it - even though IE doesn't support min-height, its implementation of height is almost identical to the correct implementation of min-height.


element { min-height:100px; }
* html element { height:100px; }

Or you could do

element {height: 100px}
parent>element {min-height: 100px}

Since IE doesn't use the > selectors.

But IE for Mac does support that selector, yet it doesn't support min-height

element { min-height:100px; }
* html element { height:100px; }

Thnanks brothercake, I'll try that. I am assuming that element is a generic term that I should change for my specifics but I'll probably find that out shortly anyway when I try it.

yup, I nearly got it sorted when I changed 'element' to the name of my div. In IE, I get a new issue when I roll over my navmenu. the div height reduces by about 40px! I'll start a new thread for that.
