offsetWidth of DIV returns zero inside TABLE tag.

1 New Member
I have developed one custom dropdown JSP tag just as HTML select box .
I calculate width of dropdown box using div's offsetWidth attribute.
But I am getting it's value as zero inside table tag .Outside the table it is returning proper width
What would be the reason of not getting proper offsetWidth of DIV inside TABLE?

Please give me suggestion.

Perhaps the script/code is declared inside the table and you need to move it out.

I'm adding text to a div using innerHTML, and watching the width of the div using offsetWidth. In IE the offsetWidth increases when the div gets wider, but in Netscape 7.2 or Firefox 1.0.3 it doesn't. Is there a way I can find when a div increases its width in non-IE browsers? TIA, Mike

Hi, I need to place a DIV exactly over a textarea element, but I can't calculate the correct value that I should set style.width to, because offsetWidth and style.width are calculated differently under strict mode. Under strict mode, offsetWidth returns the width of an element plus it's padding and border (i.e. just the same as quirks mode). Whereas, under strict mode style.width doesn't include padding or border widths.

I'm trying to build some dynamic vertical drop down menus (pop out menus?) and I'm having some trouble. I'm trying to get the width of the span tag that the root level menu item is in, because it's going to be different every time (it's a solution for a template driven website solution). I'm not assigning the width in my javascript for the same reason. So when I do span.width or span.style.width I get undefined. However, in Safari and...

for the code var node = document.getElementById("something") alert(node.offsetWidth) is very similar to node.clientWidth and node.scrollWidth I just wonder why offsetWidth is well documented in the Definitive Javascript book, but clientWidth and scrollWidth are not mentioned at all, even when all 3 of them work in IE6, IE 7, Firefox 2, and Safari
