Default sizeable <div>

Hi everybody,

I'm doing a webpage where I have to put a huge amount of data in a table.I want to always keep showing the top menu. So what I do is a "little scrollable windows" for the data. The problem is that I want the page to don't have a scrollbar but expand as much as I can my data windows with its own scrollbar.

So here is my code to make my scrollable windows for my data

<style type="text/css">
        height: 600px;
        width: 100%;
        overflow: auto;
        border: 1px solid #666;
        background-color: #ccc;
        padding: 1px;

But the problem is that I can't choose a percentage for the height so is there a way to retrieve the windows size and adjust the data windows from there??

Thank you very much

Hiii johnjohn,
yes you can get the window size
*** for IE*****
*** for NS*****


function AdjustScreen()
//if you want you can also manipulate obj.style.height
window.onresize = AdjustScreen
<div id="divid" style="overflow: auto; width: 168px; height: 420px;">
<table border=1 width=100%>

Well i haven't tested for NS
Hope this will help you

Cheers :)
