How to fill available screen size then scroll

Hi all,

I am writing a gui that expands depending on the number of interefaces
a user decides to use with Win 2k, Tkinter, and Pmw.

So with normal use the gui window will expand to the screen size and
then clip without scrolling. If I use Pmw.ScrolledFra me, the clipping
frame is set based on the size of the first child frame and never
expands to fill the screen. It just expands the size of the inside
frame inside the clipping frame.

I need a tweener solution. I need the gui to expand until it reaches
the width of the available viewing screen. THEN the scroll bar kicks in
with a clipping frame the width of the screen to allow the user to see
as many interfaces as possible.
Does anyone know how to do this?

Thanks ahead of time,

Hello. How can I make an absolutely-positions div element expand and fill the remaining horizontal space available on-screen? The background is that I've used CSS to create the normal 'three frames' look using div elements rather than frames. One of these DIV elements needs to contain an iframe, and that iframe must expand to use all space available to it. I had been using "width=100%" in the iframe and this works fine in Gecko and...

How do you provide a consistent gradient fill as a background in a liquid layout? If I make a gradient fill image say 1000 pixels wide (and repeat it down the page) to suit a typical computer display, then only a small portion of the gradient will show if the viewpoint is a smaller PDA or phone display. On the other hand, if viewed full screen on a 1920 pixel wide display, I would run out of gradient on one or both sides of the page....

I am trying to figure out if there is a way to get a regular asp.net TextBox to fill the screen, both height and width. When I drop a TextBox onto a blank asp.net page and set the height="100%", width="100", and the TextMode="MultiLine", the TextBox will fill the width of the page, and will adjust the width dynamically as the page changes size, but the height of the textbox is not full screen as I would like. It remains at 2 lines high....

I have a logical drawing space much bigger than the viewport (the screen) and I'd like to center the viewport (the screen) to be at the center of the logical drawing space.

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
