: : I have a page with one big background image. Is it possible to change the height and width of the background image with the height and width of the window so the page will always look right?
: You can use the following script... modify as necessary (image
: names, etc.). Of course, you must make sure the images are
: sized right (I'm assuming widths of 640, 800 and 1024, you
: may choose to specify your own), and some browsers will
: still not display correctly, depending on whether or not the
: browser window is maximized, whether taskbars are hidden
: or displayed, etc. Also, I haven't fully tested it for version
: compatibility.. I know it works with Netscape 4.05, and
: that it doesn't work for IE3... If you can live with that, or
: you can improve on it, feel free. If I can iron it all out, I'll
: try to post the whole thing here as an article.
: //put this part in your <HEAD>..</HEAD> block.
: if (screen)
: var docWidth = screen.width;
: function pickBGImage ()
: if (docWidth < 800) // if screen is 640x480...
: document.write ('
: // put this part in the body of your HTML
: pickBGImage ();
Yeah, thanks, I already knew of this kind of thing though. What I was really wondering is is it posssible to change the height and width of the background image that is tiled?
