Well after playing around a little I have created a solution that works although it appears a little chunky. The problem was finding the browser size to use the width as a variable for size conditional aspects to a site. Code:
I'm going to make an attempt at coding a nice tree menu that is decent with browser support.
I want the tree to be displayed on all browsers (well, within a decent range). Of course, on older browsers, the menu won't be as functional.
Like, what if a browser that doesn't support objects period tries to run some object detection code? Also, which browsers support user defined objects?
All my font-sizes are set as relative sizes in CSS (large, medium, small, x-small, etc). Let's say something is set in CSS to be xx-large, but a visually impaired user wants it displayed even bigger. Can a script determine an element's absolute size, *as it is being rendered by the browser*, and then increment the element's font-size in absolute terms?
I'm attempting to make a web page that adapts to the size of your browser size when it maximized. Because I'm only 15 I'm not such a great programmer or coder. I've done my best with the resources I have though (Fluent in Lua and a natural ability to pick languages syntax up quickly)
Here is what I have so far, it doesn't work and it is starting to puzzle me. As it seems correct as I look at it. I'm sorry if this question show my ignorance. I try my best to hide it.
Some of it is Copy pasted from sources on Google. But only for educational purposes, I learn off reading, examining and testing out snippets.
I'm basically trying to get the max size of the window and resize the div accordingly.
I've have got this script, the only thing I want to be changed is the first part. It has to detect IE version 6 instead of just "Microsoft Internet Explorer". Can somebody help me out? I tried "Microsoft Internet Explorer 6" but that doesn't work.
I want to know the height of the viewable portion of a page (minus scrollbar) in Opera and Mozilla.
For Opera, I could use document.body.clientHeight. Unfortunately, this won't work in Mozilla because Mozilla also subtracts the sizes of the top and bottom margins.
For Mozilla, I could use document.documentElement.clientHeight. Unfortunately, this won't work in Opera because Opera returns the height of the entire page, not just the viewable portion.
So I have two options:
1) Use browser detection code to determine if the user is running Opera or Mozilla, and then use the appropriate clientHeight code.
2) Use window.innerHeight. This is supported by both Opera and Mozilla, however it returns the height of the viewable portion of the page *including* the scrollbar. Is there any way to determine the width of a scrollbar? If not, then I would have to make an assumption and subtract the hardcoded width of the scrollbar from window.innerHeight... but only if the scrollbar is present, is there a way to determine that?
How can I change my text or font size when the user changes the browser size. Example: When the browser is maximized, the font goes to normal, when the browser window decreased, the font size is reduce.
I'm relatively new to jQuery and have just been learning the basics/playing around with plugins etc. I'm building a site that uses a jQuery page easing (where is scrolls smoothly down to an anchor element on the same page) - however, the script isn't working great in opera despite me trying all suggested fixes, so i have decided to have opera just page jump as per the default browser action.
My question is - Is there a way of a) detecting which browser the user is using and then if it's NOT Opera, writing the pageEase script to the page?
I voluntarily contribute on eBay's member-to-member Photos/HTML community forums along with a handful of other contributors.We often have eBay members that post on the forums that have trouble uploading images to eBay for the items that they want to sell. To properly help and diagnose these member's issues, we need to know information about their system, such as the browser that they are using, browser version, Adobe flash version, etc.
I've been seeking for an online tool that can detect info regarding one's system. There are various tools online to detect detailed info about one's system, such as this one, but they either give out too much information, or does detect everything I'd like to see answered.
I would like to have a custom script made that will detect the following information:web browser
browser version, including sub-version OS platform adobe flash version, including sub-version
the tool will detect the above information automatically, or upon user input, and send the info to a text box where the user can copy the generated info regarding their system and paste it on the forums for volunteer helpers to look at.
i've designed a site using firefox as my primary browser. (note: i'm on an old mac so limited to only what i can run on 10.2.8) i tweaked it for safari, and then took the stuff on a jump drive to the library and tweaked it for IE6 on a pc.
i've just spent two days--thursday and today since since 10 a.m.--trying to figure out first the js, and then the hack methods to no avail. (well, more, really over the past few weeks, but the two-day immersion has me totally fried.)
i'm reached the point where time is extremely critical. once i get this out in an acceptable form, i can spend more time on the learning curve.
I am getting differences in the rendering between Safari and Firefox. I've tried to come up with a JS script to sort them out but I am not having much luck. Safari always produces "red", the same as FF or nothing at all (where I substitute 'vendor' for 'userAgent', etc). Here's my little test program to isolate the basic code:
I am using a script I found on a jQuery board [URL] and it works for them, but not for me because my syntax is probably wrong. And they also are just using 1 field and not near-unlimited dynamically loading fields like I am.How would I add in a fix to have the browser 'only' use the expansion if the user is using IE6 or IE7?

I'm curious if it is possible to detect the browsers default font and size? Most of the posts on this topic predate Windows XP, IE 5.5, Mozilla Firefox, et al.
I've searched up and down the DOM properties, looped through most objects and collections alerting properties and values, and I can't find anything. This leads me to believe it is not possible to detect the browsers default font settings.
I would like to force a page reload whenever the browser is minimizedmaximized or is in any other way changed size. How can I do this?
I want to resize the div based on browser size, I mean when first it load I want it to fit on browser window and no scrolling bars should be appear and when I resize the browser size by dragging, it should be fix on that size.for example visit this link:I WANT THE SAME BEHAVIOR (SIZE BASED ON BROWSER) BUT USING JQUERY.
