Random height on element
# July 3, 2013 at 6:49 am
I want to ask how to do like this:
1. IF wrapper – height: 200px – block height: 200px
2. IF wrapper – height: 300px – block height: 300px
3. IF wrapper – height: 50px – block height: 50px
4. IF wrapper – height: 10px – block height :10px
5. IF wrapper – height: 800px – block height: 800px
P.S. Height numbers will be random.# July 3, 2013 at 8:04 am
That really won’t work. The block will be inside the wrapper.
So, if you get the height of the wrapper and make the block the same height it will then double the height of the wrapper and you would have to start all over again.
As I asked before, what are you trying to achieve?# July 3, 2013 at 8:17 am
your welcome :(
var height = $(this).prev(‘.wrapper’).height();
var height = $(this).parent().height();
and remember to select jQuery in the codepen JS menu.
Of course if you now put content into .block it will affect the height of the wrapper so each block will look higher than the height of the content above it. You can get round that with this but it will start getting messy:# July 3, 2013 at 8:31 am
Well, I think this “block(hr) ” you are using (as I recall the concept) is a little odd as I mentioned.
I think it would make more sense to have a set up like this…
Unfortunately, my JS is very poor.# July 3, 2013 at 8:39 am
>Amm, if there is more element I mean in wrapper, what to do then?
I think you are trying to do something that isn’t quite available as yet. CSS columns as I mentioned in your previous thread would seem to be the answer. but they aren’t fully supported as yet.
If you have a detailed picture of what the page or section should look like (and I don’t mean a rough example in codepen) we might be able to offer suggestions.
At the moment we come up with ideas and you keep changing it is what you want.
Of course, you could always use an bg image. :)# July 3, 2013 at 8:49 am
So @waylaid could you tell me how then to do if there in wrapper are more element?
I tried but this isin’t working.
var wrapperHeight = $(‘.wrapper’).height();# July 3, 2013 at 9:17 am
If you could create an example pen as @Paulie_D says, with a layout close to what you are wanting and with some example content, then we’ll have a better idea of what you’re hoping to achieve.
At the moment I don’t see why a border on the internal divs wouldn’t do you you need. Have a look at this about border images: http://css-tricks.com/understanding-border-image/
