Resizing of Form Fields When Using Percentages For Width Property

1 New Member
Wierd thing is happening during my xHTML development. When I set the width attribute of a text field in a form and use percentages, if the text field's value is extremely long, IE6 automatically widens the width of my text field. For example
-- input type="text" width="90%" value="Some extremely long value" -- IE6 will allow this text field to extend the full width of the value string.

Any known work-a-rounds for this? This is not a problem in Firefox. The reason I use percentages is that I have a fluid page, so that as the user adjusts their browser window, my form adjusts also. Thanks.

Hello Everyone, The problem of browser resizing has become an issue for me. While redesigning my webpage, I set the left and right margins to be auto so that my content would be centered. However, there are images that I used absolute positioning in order to place them in the appropriate location on my page. When I do a browser resize, these images do not move (obviously). However, the rest of my content is auto centered as...

I have some old code that I use from the Access 95 Developers handbook. The code works very well, with the exception that it doesn't seem to recognize wide screens, and sizes tab controls so that they are too big and wind up covering up some of the fields on the main form. Is there any good code out there that works in a similar fashion that will also either a) stretch the form width wise on widescreens or b), rely on height rather than...

I have a ListView control, for which I have overwritten the WndProc method to gain access to the WM_PAINT message and generate my own OnPaint and OnPaintBackground messages, in order to colour the columns of the listview to my liking. When a row of the listview is selected, some controls are displayed on that row of the listview (so sort of like a property list thingy). In order to get the controls (specifically buttons) to display how I...

I have a DataList control that has an Image control in the ItemTemplate. I would like to resize the image that goes into that control. I have a series of jpg files that are full size, full resolution (ie. large). I have a database that contains references to the pictures. Currently I have to resize the jpgs manually, and then point the ImageUrl property at that jpg using databinding. This works fine. I would like to avoid the resizing step...

Hello clc, I have a buffer in a program which I write to. The buffer has write-only, unsigned-char-at-a-time access, and the amount of space required isn't known a priori. Therefore I want the buffer to dynamically grow using realloc(). A comment by Richard Heathfield in a thread here suggested that a good algorithm for this is to use realloc() to double the size of the buffer, but if realloc() fails request smaller size increments...

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>". The problem is that using the GNU compilers, it seems that the internal comparison operator "<=>" tries to promote arguments from unsigned to signed. This is as boiled down as I can make it. Here is my compilation command: g++-12 -std=c++20 -Wnarrowing bit_field.cpp Here is the code in...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
