Hi, I have taken a look at the Prototype API and it says that document.viewport.getDimensions() should return the size of the viewport. I have created a simple page with a <div> with width of 100px and height of 100px. I am hoping to alert the height of the browser window, but I get the height of the div. I didn't understand why the height of the div got alerted instead of the browser window. It appears that I needed to add a DOCTYPE in order for document.viewport.getDimensions() to work properly. Can anybody explain why the DOCTYPE is required for Prototype to return the correct viewport height? I have pasted the code that incorrectly returns the height of the div instead of the viewport on pastie: http://pastie.org/504692.
Just add a doctype and you get the correct result: Replace <html> with <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd"> <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"> I hope to use Prototype with Ext JS in the future, but it seems that Prototype recommends/requires the use of DOCTYPES while Ext JS recommends against using DOCTYPES in order to avoid bugs in IE. - Paul K --~--~---------~--~----~------------~-------~--~----~ You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Prototype & script.aculo.us" group.
