Tip: Express sizes with percentages

Wednesday, July 25, 2007 at 3:57 PM



For a resizable gadget, it's often easiest to set the width or height of inner elements to 100%. That way when the view or outer element is resized, the inner elements adjust size accordingly. For example:
<div width="50" height="50">
<label width="100%" height="100%" size="8"></label>
</div>
When the div's size changes, the label is automatically resized to match the div.
