    reset Height to nothing

    Hello,

    I hit a small bump in my code.

    How can I reset a height property back to nothing ?

    if my div was..
    Code:
    <div id="test" stye="height:550px; border:1px solid #000;"> some text 550 px long...</div>
    I tryied setting .height = "";
    But its not working in IE6

    Any ideas ?

    Drew

    your missing a closing quote on that ID :P

    PHP Code:
    document.getElementById("test").style.height '0px'
    ?

    edit: quote not bracket. silly me.

    Ahh.. sorry. That was me just typing the example. The code had the correct syntax.

    I think I solved my problem though.

    element.height =""; does reset the div to nothing....

    It may have been just a browser cache issue.

    Thanks for the reply though.

    You can also reset the height to null
    Code:
    document.getElementById("test").style.height = null;

    not recomended because of the way some less common browsers handle that(turning null into a string 'null' before assigning it).

    Really? I would not have imagined that... I guess those browsers have a bug. Javascript should permit a null value in any kind of assignment... Which browsers? I am just curious.

    I have never come across it myself, it was documented somewhere(although I cannot find it any more)...

    ok, never mind... Anyway, you are right. A stringed value should be safer in that case. I was just remembered the null possibility...
