I'm stumped. I'm not so sure what is the right answer to your question. I'll do some investigation and get back to you if I find an decent answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably can help you..
Have a look here.
The scrollbars is the thing I want to avoid...basically I have put the scrollbar value to auto so that you can see the iframe I am talking about. What I am trying to achieve is to get that page loaded with the FULL 100% height without the scrollbars..
The problem appears when the user has his browser in a small size...It;s working fine with the browser maximised..
Iframe in it. I get scrollbars because my browser is not big enough. all sites are like that...
Yay so I'm not crazy. g_mitropapas can you please point out the exact page with the IFRAME. If you are talking about the main window beign too big it's your flash menu..
Ok, if you go to.
Now and keep the window half the size of the screen, let's say, you should be able to see the two scrollbars on the right, one of the main page and one of the iframe. I was wondering how I could get the contents of the iframe expand so that the whole document will be visible with ONLY the scrollbar of the main page visible. Of course the scrollbar of the iframe is set to "auto" for demonstration purposes. Keep in mind that the contants of the iframe are going to be dynamic....
Thanks again for you effort to help me and sorry for the chaos and confusion, are all part of the game!..
I see it know, sorry about that. If I understand correctly you don't want that scroll bar there, right? You could do a few things. You can set the height of the IFRAME to be as large as the page. Second you could make the entire page that has the IFRAME in it open in a new maximaized window, you can search this iPage site on how to do that, it's been discussed many times. I wouldn't recommend that though as it would cause a large mess. The best way to do it would to not have that IFRAME there.
The only reason I am doing it it's because, the client wants the option tha the user chooses from the top menu to be hilighted and to stay hightlighted. So I wouldn't want to be loading a different document each time, wouldn't look good. But anyway, I manages to do it with normal frames, so no probs on that!.
Thanks again, man!..
Let me ask why the navigation is done in flash? There is no real animation done.... so I can't figure out why it's like that..
You could also just set up the page in tables, and use includes instead of frames to accomplish what youd like (minus scroll bars)...
