  • Layer Positioning in IE5 & NS6

    I know there have differrences in IE5 and NS6 in the CSS position:absolute style attribute, So, i create a reposition function for IE5 and Nestcape6, such as:

    obj.style.left = 120;
    obj.style.top = 132;

    it work fine, but when i resize the window (in NS6), the position can't go relative to the windows size.

    please help!! In IE, I use mergin-left and margin-top instead of left and top, then only it work the way as I want it to be.

    Please advice. Thanks!

    u probably need to reload the page everytime the window gets resized. or u could change teh properties of the window so that it can't be resized ( the resizable property) no idea whether this or if it will work or not!
    to reload, the handler text would be this:
    Hope this information helped u out!

      here's a generic, cross browser reload/resize trap, which must be in the BODY section

      <script language="javascript">
      var agt = navigator.userAgent.toLowerCase();
      function nsReload() { window.location.reload(); }
      function resizeReload() {
      	if (window.opera||(agt.indexOf("konqueror")!=-1)) {
      		var newBW=window.innerWidth;
      		var newBH=window.innerHeight;
      		if(newBW==oldBW&&newBH==oldBH){ setTimeout("resizeReload()",100); }
      		else { window.location.reload(); }
      	else if (document.layers) {
      		if (agt.indexOf("win")!=-1) { setTimeout("window.onresize=nsReload", 500); }
      		else { window.onresize=nsReload; }
      	var oldBW=window.innerWidth;
      	var oldBH=window.innerHeight;
      else if (document.layers) { resizeReload(); }
      else { window.onresize=new Function("window.location.reload()"); }

            after access to the page,
            1.)please mouseover the "futurelaunches" menu (at top banner) and see (in IE 5 and NS6)

            2.) Click on the "property for sales" Link, at side menu, the position display not properly in NS6, after clicking, there have "gap" between Development Progress Link and Futurelaunches.

                  The menu doesn't even work!

                  your menu doesn't work at all in NS6. To fix this, you must implement The DOM way of hiding and showing elements. You're going to have to put in another thing in your if else statement:

                  function showLot(id)
                  ns6=(document.getElementById) ? true:false
                  ns4=(document.layers)? true:false
                  ie4=(document.all)? true:false
                  if (ns4)
                  { document.layers[id].visibility="show"

                  else if (ie4)

                  } else if (ns6)


                  To hide it, the visibility property should be "hidden"

                  Since i don't actually have access to your server, plus i don't really have the time, i can't test and replace the include by myself.

                    I don't know why, the "property for sales" side Link can't work on NS6 at your side. My one no problem, can hide and show, but just have a gap between the "Development Progress" Link and "Futurelaunches" Link.

                    MOreover, the position of the "Futurelaunches" menu (banner there) can't stay on the original position when resize it, I want to fix this problem in NS6, in IE it work fine.


                    • #11

                      and the links work fine now in my browser, without any gaps or anything. ( compared IE to NS6, couldn't c a difference)

                        ya, you are right, the menu goes to the left a little (resize smaller), it won't fix under the "Futurelaunches" menu (banner there) like what IE5.5..

                        I use NS6.0, what version are you using?? If it work fine, just forget about it...please help me to solve the above problem.

                            Do you mean you want it under the future launches links in the banner?

                              Can't find teh menu code

                              I've lookes through your code, but can't seem to find the code for the menu. Is it in an include, or in the index of the page?
                              If so, which include is it in?
