Perhaps I wasn't clear enough as to what "Adam's code doesn't work either"
meant. You had
w = (100 - self.document.body.clientWidth) + <?=$w?>;
h = (100 - self.document.body.clientHeight) + <?=$h?>;
The (100 - self.document.body.clientWidth) and (100 -
self.document.body.clientHeight) are tautologies here because after
self.resizeTo(100, 100) you have self.document.body.clientWidth = 100 and
self.document.body.clientHeight = 100 from what I can see. So the 4 lines
above can be replaced by
which will work just fine in that it will resize the window to the size I
specify, but that's no advance on what I already have. I need to be able to
Now that this document has been rendered, what are the dimensions of the box
which would just contain it ?
Resize the window to those dimensions.
document.width and .height provide that information for NS4. It doesn't seem
to be possible to get it in IE. I was wondering if perhaps someone could
suggest some DOM magic which might work e.g. place everything on a layer, get
the dimensions of the layer, resize the window to suit.
