Vertical DIV to stretch to full page

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know a way that i can use the code below to make middle div's stretch vertically up to page full height, making footer to be on the very bottom (without scrolling the browser window) of the page?

i noticed that height 100% sucks and doesnt do it what it should, however if you wanted to you could do this

<table>

<tr><td>FIRST DIV</td></tr>

<tr><td>MIDDLE DIV</td></tr>

<tr><td>LAST DIV</td></tr>

</table>

and set height attributes in the <td>'s making sure they equal 100% taking into account any padding or margining you might add.

I could but the goal here is not using <table> ;)

did u try that height here ?

#container {

width: 1000px;

margin:auto;

}

and you should delete that 450% height from the content style i think

#content

{

background: #fff;

clear: both;

width: 600px;

height: 450%;

overflow-y: scroll;

}
