View Full Version : 100% HEIGHT in N6 makes IFRAME disappear!

12-02-2002, 01:26 AM
I recently (with help) adjusted my iframe to have 100% height. But now the iframe won't show up in Netscape 6. When I remove the 100%, it shows up...but (of course) doesn't look right.

Anyone else have this problem...or better yet, a solution!?

<iframe name="content" id="content" style="position:relative; width:100%; height:100%" src="blank_page.html" scrolling="auto" frameborder="0"></iframe>

The page in question is HERE (http://www.helindonovan.com/services/index.html?lending_services.html)...this is one of the iframe targets.

this has been a known bug as of v6.0. I'm not sure whether it was fixed in 6.2 or later.

Sorry I don't have any particulars with me, but last time I checked in at the Bugzilla site, there was an interesting thread about the bug (and approx 87,000 others too!).

Hmmm, bugs!?

Well, anyone else have any insight on this matter?

What work-around might you suggest!? I really need the 100% height. Should I make separate lines for IE and N6+? Some sort of browser detection? I want it as simple and cross-browser as possible.

Any help!?!?!?

Anyone? Anything?

If the bug exists, then what workaround can I use!?

Bump...again and again....

Sorry, but I'll probably bump until I find a solution.

A bug is a bug. Unless you want to dynamically assign a pixel value, there is no way of overcoming this bug. Bumping this thread will not help it, nor is it a very respectful thing to do. Once or twice is understandable, but not 4 times.

Sorry, I knew I was pushing it. Had this been for one of my general web sites, I'd have dropped it some time ago. But this one is for one of my corporate clients.

I guess what I was hoping to get was code that would make N6+ bypass the <iframe> code that is used for IE. I'd need some sort of browser sniffer that would allow me to put alternative iframe code for N6+ -- sans the 100% portion.
