Thread: How can I resize a DHTML Positioned element after the page has loaded in Netscape 4.x?

    How can I resize a DHTML Positioned element after the page has loaded in Netscape 4.x?


    How can I resize a DHTML Positioned element after the page has loaded in Netscape
    4.x? My clipping zone is expanding just like it should, but the text wrap
    is not expanding with the clipping zone.

    Any help is appreciated.

    If this resize is supposed to change the look of the page (in terms of
    the layout of the objects), you're out of luck. Netscape (pre 6.0)
    browsers use a static engine that lays out the page once -- when it's
    read in. You can't change something in the middle of the page and get
    the rest of the page to "re-flow".

    For NS browsers before 6.0, you'll need to do it with layers or some
    other goofy trick.

    Do you have the luxury of refreshing the page? If you do, you may need to
    do so in this case.
