    Question resizable table using JS?

    Hi, I'm just wondering if it would be possible to script a table that would act like a frameset like this one:

    <frameset rows="10* , 450, 10*" frameborder="no" framespacing="0" border="0">
    <frame src="html/burgundy.html" name="haut" scrolling="no" noresize>
    <frameset cols="10*, 600, 10*">
    <frame src="html/burgundy.html" name="gauche" scrolling="no" noresize>
    <frame src="html/interface.html" name="centre" scrolling="no" noresize>
    <frame src="html/burgundy.html" name="droite" scrolling="no" noresize>
    <frame src="html/burgundy.html" name="bas" scrolling="no" noresize>

    So my main window would always be in the center of my screen and I would not lose the side scroll bar. Here's an example

    I am not sure why you want to use javascript for that? It's purely a layout question I think, which is solved by either a html table, or some DIV's linked up via CSS if you need special effects so to speak.

    If you make a table, with a fixed width, say 780 pixels, and set that to 100% height, it will at least always fill the screen, and when it becomes longer than the window height, it'll just go beyond that and a scrollbar will appear.
    Align this table centered using a <div align='center'> around it.

    Then when you need extra edges around it, you can give it some margins, or you can set the body-elements padding/margin settings as to create the clearances.

    CSS purists will loath the use of a table in this case, and would replace it with a div, that gets positioned by css properties and maybe even functions. I dont know the solution for that off hand, since I'm not happy with CSS layouts as they tend to have minor flaws during resizing especially. Maybe someone else can fill you in on that.
