Quick question... Forget about cost, for iPage web hosting Go Daddy or Network Solutions? Thanks for any answer. Second question of mine... Hi guys,.

Is there a way of automatically detecting what screen resolution people looking at your iPage site are using?.

Things look so different when one guy uses an 800 x 600 screen and another uses 1280 x 1024..

I know I can use Center but images and text sizes are just so different. Just thought I could detect the size and automatically amend the text size etc..

Anyway, if anyone out there knows, I'd be grateful..

Cheers guys..

Good question... I dunno what is the right answer to your question. I'll do some poking around and get back to you if I find an anything. You should email the people at iPage as they probably know..

Comment #1

Don't just test for the common 800x600 and 1024x768 resolutions, but also provide a solution for people using sizes smaller than those, larger then those, and test to see if anyone uses something non-standard.


Those two sizes...

Comment #2

Yes, ppoint taken, I was going to use less than and greater than but just go with 3 basic sizes for images and text size. I thought I would keep the data in SQL Server so I can get a rough idea of the sizes most people use, I can't cater for everything. I have used Nedstat and I only get 3% of users with Netscape, the rest is IE5 or 6 and mainly 800 x 600 and 1024 x 728 (I think it is). I develop on 1280 x 1024 so have to curtail myideas somewhat <g>.

Anyway, thanks for your help..

What is it you want to do. I came up with a dynamic way of laying out images and content the other day. This doesnt use a script at all but tables. If you give me an idea of what you want to achive i'll try an describe how to do it...

Comment #4

If you look at the iPage site I have divided it up into 4 frames..

A top banner which I want to change to Flash at some point..

A left hand navigation bar.

A right hand advertising bar.

The middle where photos, text etc are..

- but it goes offline in 2 days (27th) for 10 days..

BTW, how do I get at the data coming back from.


Screen.availwidth etc?.


Dim a, b as string.

A = screen.availheight.value.

B = screen.availwidth.value.


I am using Visual Studio .NET - ASP - VB.NET..



Comment #5

Mm, Canary Islands... When it's -20 degrees Celcius in December here in Finland, it's warm and sunny there....

Let's get back to reality from my dreams... screen.availWidth and so on are JavaScript, not VBScript commands. I don't know if there is a way how to return the visitor's screen size etc. using VBScript, and if there is, I don't know how to...

Comment #6

BTW, JavaScript, and as far as I know also VBScript are case-sensitive, so the correct "spelling" is.


, not.



Comment #7

I can run javascript from within Visual Studio in the HTML section - no problems. However being a simpleton how do I get to the results? What is the syntax to make a label.text = screen.availWidth ? .

And yes, Canaries are nice and warm, off out there next month all being well!.

You should know JavaScript for that... What do you want to use them for?..
