Subject: Returning proper height values!
Date: Thursday, January 01, 2004 2:23 PM
I have a very simple script.
It is used to adjust the size of a table cell acording to the size of the a
different table cell.
The main cell has and id value of layout and the table to adjust is
lastcell.
The 465 is the difference between the other cells that i have constant and
the cell that i want to adjust in terms of the layout cell.
The problem.. when it returns the value of the layout cell and adjusts the
size... the size doesn't come out right...
I'm thinking they aren't of the same units and therefor I am getting
incorrect results

var height = document.all.layout.size;
document.write();
var newheight = height - 465;
document.all.lastcell.size == newheight;

Any help would be greatly appreciated
Thanks

var height = document.all.layout.size;
what is this attribute "size" ?

why not do:

x = document getElementById("layout")
var myheight = x.style.clientHeight
document.write();
You cannot do thes, because
this will destroy the whole page including the script.
var newheight = height - 465;
ok
document.all.lastcell.size == newheight;


x = document getElementById("lastcell")
x.style.clientHeight = newheight

Evenso, I do not understand exactly what you are after. Could you post a
simple but complete code ?

Oh, be fair. None of that appears in the actual headers. He's living in
a world of his own, true, but since the actual header dates are correct,
he's harmless. Any newsreader that decides body text should be
interpreted as a header is in need of replacing anyway.

You obviously had enought time on your hands to whine and bitch so if you
have nothing good to say keep it to yourself
Your complaining doesn' t help anyone or anything, so simply stated: keep
your bs up your ass.
For the rest... here is pretty much what i was trying to accomplish:
x = document.getElementById("layout");
var myheight = x.style.clientHeight;
var newheight = myheight - 465;
x = document.getElementById("lastcell");
x.style.clientHeight = newheight;

Thanks to Evertjan. for your help. I read somewhere about the size
attribute and wasn't sure how to use it
and couldn't find any help on it when i searched for it.
To Clarify... trying to resize a cell that is affected by rowspan, due to
some dynamically loaded content into another cell that changes each time
and ends up stretching my layout so it looks messed....

for some strange reason in explorer it would not accept my heights as 100%
etc to fix the problem... so i figured javascript could do it

BUT.... it still doesn't change the display when i use this script... the
heights aren't getting any values... Do i have to specifiy values in
the table cells for height? If so... will they change when read by the
script(dynamic size) or will it just read what is there????

Anywho
Thanks

In contrast to you, I neither whined nor bitched.

The `if' is the magic word here.

[X] My newsreader does not interpret header-like
text after headers as headers.
[_] You got the punchline.
