Set CSS based on Screen Resolution

with one comment

Coworker Wade was working with 1. getting screen resolution and 2. changing page size to fit that resolution. This turned out to be pretty tricky…a fluid mix of javascript, html, and vb. He ended up using a post by Serge Baranovsky to work a solution: 1. calling another page that sets a session variable to the screen resolution 2. calling back the original page. And once it’s in the session variable it can be used throughout. It’s not a perfect solution, but it is very quick and it works. Here is the zipped Screen Resolution source from Serge Baranovsky. There are other methods that should work, but all of them require a postback of some kind, as the resolution isn’t known until the page has loaded completely. Nice work Wade…and thanks for the extra help Serge!

  1. an easier way…set your panel(or control or whatever) to the right size based upon the screen.availHeight. compliments of wade….

    script type=”text/javascript” language=”javascript”

    document.getElementById(‘ctl00_Panel1’).style.height = screen.availHeight – 280;

    document.getElementById(‘ctl00_Panel1’).height = screen.availHeight – 280;
