Overflow – dynamic declaring possible?
# June 5, 2009 at 9:13 pm
I really have no idea what to call my question but here is exactly what I am wanting to do.
I have my own forum running on phpbb3 and I have set rules for signatures for users like your signature can’t be over 500 pixels in height. Now I know there will always be someone who either doesn’t read the rules or simply doesn’t care so I was wondering if there was a way to dynamically declare an overflow css depending on the size of the signature of a user.
signature contains a single image that is only 300 x 100…so I would want the size of the signature box to fit the image.
signature contains two images each 400 x 300 totaling the signature size to be 400 x 600…here I want the overflow to be declared so it creates scrollable signature for that user.
So basically I want the overflow to only activate if a user has 500px worth of content, text or images, but if they dont to just display the content normally.
What I tried:Code:width:100%;
This works essentially but the problem is that it resizes the signature field on EVERYONE’s signature including User A who wasn’t using 500px to suddenly be 500px regardless the content.
Hopefully I was clear enough…can anyone help me out with this?# June 6, 2009 at 7:20 pm"RottNKorpse" wrote:I have set rules for signatures for users like your signature can’t be over 500 pixels in height.
Haha you must really be fond of scrolling. lol"RottNKorpse" wrote:Hopefully I was clear enough…can anyone help me out with this?
Yea, your (theoretical) solution lies in "max-height."Code:max-height: 500px
It’s the theoretical solution because it doesn’t work in IE6…
