Javascript Detect Browser Height...

Is there a way to detect with javascript the height and width of a browser window that's open? Much the opposite of a pop-up where you define the height and width I guess you could say - anyone know if this is easily possible?

Javascript, Detect DIV Height
I am very new to javascript, it is on my list of things to learn... but I have a wide range of other traditional programming languages so I understand functions, etc

however in the mean time I am looking for a way to detect the height of a specific div.

My goal is that I have a div that is set to overflow: auto ,

If the content of the div goes beyond its set height, I would like to make a div visible. So basicly I need to get the height of a div element, and compair it to a pixel number.

To go a step beyond, it would be cool to make the div that is visible when there is scrolling, to disapear once you got to the bottom of the div.

Any ideas?

Detect The Current Version Of JavaScript Supported In The Browser?
Possible Duplicate: To tell Javascript version of your browser With JavaScript is it possible to detect the current version of JavaScript supported in the browser? I'm looking for something similar to navigator.userAgent but for the JavaScript version. EDIT: I'm not asking that to perform feature detection. I'm digging more into JavaScript, and use my browsers' javascript consoles. I would like to know for each of my browsers if they support ECMAScript Edition 5 for instance.

JQuery :: Html - Dynamic Element Height To Cover Browser Height
I have layout as follows.

Height of resizeable element is to kept such as it will cover entire browser height.

Few points

Layout should work with browser resize. Top elements and Bottom elements are optional i.e. some pages may include them. Using Ajax to load content, which can come at Top elements or Bottom elements header, footer and LeftSide will not change once page is loaded. minimum height is 100px Layout should work with IE 6 :(

I have started writing script based browser resize event. But could not come to suitable logic. Also resize element does not cover event if new content is added in Top elements or Bottom elements

Jquery :: Detect Option Tag Text Indent Feature Or Detect Type Of Browser As A Fallback
I have a select drop-down that is supposed to represent the hierarchy of pages in a site.

<select id="parent" name="parent">
<option value="">(none)</option>
<option class="inset0" value="home">home</option>
<option class="inset1" value="aboutpage">aboutpage</option>
<option class="inset2" value="about">about</option>
<option class="inset2" value="staff">staff</option>

This is making options of deeper levels display as indented according to the depth each page is in the site hierarchy. However this styling only works in FireFox, and not in Chrome. I know that styling of controls is largely uneven among browsers and operating systems, so I will not go there. Instead I would like to add "-" characters before the text of each option in order to make the hierarchy visible. I only need to do this for Chrome, since I am not supporting IE at all in this project. The manipulation of the object's text will be done in javascript. My question is this: Knowing that browser detection is not recommended and feature detection is favored instead, how can I perform a feature detection for this browser behavior? If this is not possible, is there a quick test that will allow me to know if I'm in Chrome/webkit or Firefox/Gecko?

JQuery :: Css - Setting Margin On An Element According To Browser Height And Another Element's Height?
I'm coding for a site with a title in a div that is tilted at 270 degrees and is fixed to the page bottom; this title changes for each page and I'd like the content to begin at the same vertical height as the title starts on page load. So say the browser is 900px high and the title is 500px I'd like the top-margin of the content div to be 400px. Is there an easy-ish way to do this with JQuery? I know you'd have to get both heights first and then form an equation, but I'm too amateur at JQuery to do so.

Any Way To Detect IFrame Content Height Change?
There are plenty of examples showing how to dynamically set an iframe's height to its content. This works perfect for me. The problem I'm now having is that the content can change size without triggering onload (think hidden/expandable divs). Is there any way to detect when the size of the iframe content has changed? This is on the same domain and no jQuery, please.

Detect Picture Width And Height In A Page?
i am using jquery to detect picture width and height in a page. if the size exceeds a specified value, then a maximum size will be assigned to the <img > attribute.

this jquery is run with $(window).load, because when $(document).ready the pictures may not be loaded and the script may fail

this theory is good. however, if the internet speed is slow, or the picture link is dead, user would have to wait for a long long time before the jquery executes.

is there any way to do the resizing job wisely? for example, resize each picture once each of the pictures is loaded?

Javascript To Detect Textbox
I am wondering if any of you Javascript experts can enlighten me on
which event to call. The use situation is that the tetxbox field is
populated from the DB and the add/update and delete will work only when
a textbox for reason for change is entered. This mean if a user simply
type in the same value as before, the ASP.NET textbox will be marked
with changed. But it should not limit that a user can not change the
whole value in the textbox at all.

I have looked at keyup, mousedown, etc. but it will calling the
function after every key is entered and that is what I don't want to

JQuery :: Facebook - Modify Function To Detect Iframe Height?
I use facebook commenting plugin on my website. It is hidden in a div.

<div style="display: none" id=cmbx(id) class="comentBox">
<div class="fb-comments" data-href="" data-num-posts="5" data-width="520"></div>


The problem is as follows. Once a hidden div get's expanded there is a lot of space under facebook comments that is not suppose to be there, I guess this is caused, because jquery function doesn't know the height of facebook iframe.

You can see the problem yourself here: [URL] (click on several comments links under the posts to oppen hidden divs.)

NOTE: I tested it in several browsers, FireFox works normaly, the problems are present in chrome, safari and IE, not sure about opera.
