I have the following partial CSS:
//These dimensions are dynamic, but I'm using static values here.
And the following HTML:
All of the content is dynamically populated.

I’m not sure if you’ve looked it up but css3 supports max and min heights in dimension properties so you may want to just use those to keep the image from fitting the outer div.
never mind, i didn’t read the title all the way through the first time around.July 18, 2011 at 2:17 pm #83564chrisburtonParticipant
min-height & max-height is also supported in CSS2 when it was introduced.July 18, 2011 at 2:56 pm #83569
I’m a little lost. I’m already using max-height on the image. Should I be using it somewhere else or in a different way?

Honestly, I have no idea what you’re trying to accomplish. Can you show in an image or upload your content live either to your site or http://jsfiddle.net?July 18, 2011 at 9:44 pm #83588
just changing the percentage in this case should fix it for you, leaving it as a percentage should make it so that the image can get bigger or smaller than its actual size but still stay within its container as it has a percentage less than 100.
@ChristopherBurton what they’re trying to do is have a in icon and text within a div, the objective being to keep the icon constrained within the div and sized so that it is squished between the text and the outer div. Ok now I don’t know if you’ll be able to understand what I just said…
@donnapep it may be best is you make a quick mock up of the div and what you’re expecting it to look like at 2 different sizes and put it up so hat we can use this to guage how you expect the icon to interact with the rest of the divs.July 18, 2011 at 10:00 pm #83590
Here’s a working example – http://jsfiddle.net/3aZPU/2/
Note that jsFiddle actually shows it with scrollbars because it is not constraining my content to 600×600, as specified in the CSS. If it was confined to 600px high, Wednesday would not be viewable. So what I want to do in that case is scale all the images down so that they all fit. And if the container’s dimensions were changed to 600×1200 for example, I would not want the images to scale larger than their native dimensions.
As a little background, this is being used in digital signage. There are different zones of content on the screen. In this case, the zone is weather and the user gives it whatever size they want. The content can’t grow larger than the user-specified dimensions or it will run into content in other zones.

umm something wrong there sl1dr changing that value doesn’t change the dimensions of the icons but only of the bounding line you’ve added to see whats going on.July 18, 2011 at 10:34 pm #83593
Hmmm…that didn’t have any effect. Here it is on its own inside of our web app with your recommended change (best to view this in Chrome if possible) – http://viewer-test.appspot.com/Viewer.html?type=presentation&id=b58ea734-aa33-4b39-b297-f4297dee269a
Notice how the image and info for Wednesday are cut off by the bottom edge of the div? I need to prevent that.
Thanks for all of the suggestions!July 18, 2011 at 10:41 pm #83595
hey sl1dr at the top where you said change this to see the icons resize. Also when I begin itself the icons are already out of the div. I tried changing the percentages after that but it seemed to have no effect on the icons themselvesJuly 18, 2011 at 11:07 pm #83597
hmm I’m using the latest firefox, sorry i don’t keep anything else installed except the latest IEJuly 19, 2011 at 9:19 am #83622
Hey, your solution is perfectly fine for my needs. I think it works great. Thanks so much!July 19, 2011 at 12:00 pm #83635
Just to keep things interesting, would it also be possible to do the same thing to scale the width of the image down if the width of the container were made smaller?July 22, 2011 at 3:48 pm #83802
Sounds good. Thanks again!
