Relative And Absolute Positioning Not Working In Ie9?
Aug 9, 2011
I'm just figuring out how to use absolute inside a relative element to shift an image without changing the flow of the rest of the html. It's working for Firefox 4, but not IE 9.
In firefox the div element doesn't cause a hole in the flow. The div and the image inside is simply moved over to where they should be. But in IE, the image is sitting there as part of the flow bumping down the next things (the text and span tags) and the image isn't moving over to the right at all.
I've tried wrapping the div in an another div but that made no difference. Am I crazy to think this is supposed to work? I'm inserting the div and image tags dynamically in the client in javacript.
I am working on a puzzle that produces a container div.Within that div are produced a grid of 9.16. or 25 tiles.The tiles are positioned absolutely so I can be sure of their relative placement. The container div width and height is calculated according to a preset tile width and height (square actually). So the width of the container should adjust to either 3,4 or 5 tile widths and heights.The trouble is that the offset position of the top left tile is different relative to the container for each different set of tiles (even though it is supposed to be the same position relative to the container for each). I do this so I can apply dragging to the container div.The tiles will follow the container when it is moved and the game will not loose its place when tiles swap locations.(one tile is elected as blank, and tiles, one to left, right, top or bottm, with game content, will swap location with blank when clicked)
I'm trying to get the height of an element that contains content which is absolutely positioned. As far as I can tell, because the absolute positioned content is taken out of the page flow, you cannot retrieve the 'visible' height (ie height as seen onscreen) of the element with properties like clientHeight / offsetHeight.
Is there any way to access the visible height of an element like this?
how can I get the absolute position of a relative element?
We dynamically create a page with multiple segments which are relatively ordered among each other. In these segments we have input fields. When such an input field is focused I need it's absolute position. Is there a way to do so with IE > 6?
Because of the nature of my page, I would like to animate a div from a fixed postion when someone first visits the site to an absolutely position location using after clicking a menu item using .animate and the easing effects. This part seems to work fine, however, when I click on the "home" button again, the div will not move back to the original fixed position. The div just sticks to the top of the page. My assumption is that the .animate scriptdoesn't' know how to interpret/find the fixed position location. Is there a way to make this work?
I had askedthis question on another forum but unfortunately I was unable to find a fix. I have a select and drag code that works well until in selection is added a position relative div. Here is the code and you can see a working demo at [URL] To see the problem just mouse select span 1, span 2 and the nested span 4 You can see the code and demo at http://jsbin.com/azeli/2
I managed to get my hover over text pop up to work but now I would like the text box to pop up in the same location relative to the text As you can see here, when you hover over any text not within the first row, it is a bit all over the place. Is there any way making the text pop up the same way it does for the first row for the other rows?
How come when I make a button that's "absolute" position, My dialog overflows and I get the vertical scroll bar if I move the button out of place? I thought it would re size the height accordingly but it doesn't.
I built my company's website and the content portion of the site uses text with styles with relative values and the navigational part of the site uses text with styles with absolute values. The purpose of this was so that the end user could increase the size of the text on the webpage and only the content portion of the page would scale or resize but the navigation would not. This works as expected on a pc but the entire page scales on a MAC. Does MAC not support text with styles the same as pc so that the only scalable text is that with relative values (ie: small, x-small, medium, large, etc)? Absolute values conist of point sized text. Code:
This works well with PC's IE. However, when I open this in Mac IE, the dots are either shifted too high up or too low in relation to the US image. Strange thing is, when I resize the browser, the dots literally jump to their correct places.
Is there some possibility with php to put the horizontal scroll bar of the web brwser into the center if the "width" of web page are bigger then the "width" of the web browser screen?So I don't need to scroll to right if I open the page, but the horizontal scroll bar will be positioned in the center.That code should do the same think like I when I take the scroll bar and put it in the center position, but this should be happen when I load the page automatically.
I was wondering if it is possible to set the positioning of an element in CSS? What I am looking to do, is have a set of 3 boxes on the right of the page and base the size of the boxes by %. Problem is, while I can position the first and third boxes relative to the top and bottom of the page, repectively, depending on the size of the browser, i can't firmly set the positioning for the middle box off of the top or bottom.
Ideally, I would like to use JS to determine the height of the first box (which is based on a % of the page size), and then set the top of the second box = the height of the first box + 5px for a buffer. Code:
I'm trying to write the code for an AJAX script. The goal is to let the visitor send a comment through a form (obviously). The form is inside a div that pops up when the visitor clicks on an "add a comment" link and when the form is submitted the result of the form processing apears inside the same div which resizes to fit the size of the result.
The problem I'm trying to solve is that although the resizing and the positioning of the div works for Firefox it doesn't for IE7. In IE7 it does the resizing but the positioning fails Code:
I have problem here I have two div as below: [CODE <div id="left" style="top:0px;left:0px; width:150px;"> <div id="title1" style="top:auto;left:0px; padding: 4px; overflow: auto; background-color: #8EB4E3;"> <table border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0"> <tr><td></td></tr> <tr> <td>OUR SYSTEM</td><td width="11%" height="10"><div align="right"> <img src="../fleet/images/logos/<?=$fleetID?>.png" width="100" height="50" /></div></td> </tr></table></div> </div> <div id="right" style="top:0px;left:250px; width:800px; height:100%">Map goes here. </div>[/CODE] The problem I am having is that when the div id="left" does not have any inner div then the right div where it contains map is at 0px. But the moment I put id="title1" in the div id="left" then the map in div id="right" does not stay at the top 0px and it goes down by quite many pixels.
