View Full Version : Overflow:auto and height percentages in ie

(sorry, I dont think i've searched enough to actually post yet, but im on my way out from work, and last time i was home, my internet wasnt up, so i figured i post before i was all alone)


I suppose im doing something wrong, since, well, it doesnt work.

in FF the cont2 block extends too far down in some window sizes,

and in IE it just doesnt overflow:auto at all.

Im guessing it has to do with my height:100 and 90%'s but i couldnt really figure out how to do it right. intent should be reasonably obvious in FF.

Thanks!...god i feel like an idiot today. (sry)

Well since no height is applied to cont IE is going 75% of the browser height. Can you give a set height to cont? 600px seems to work fine.

awesome, thanks.
little confused on how that worked, but lead me in the right direction.
fix'd it with some *html hacks and heights. THANKS again, engineer!
