WebYep- PLEASE HELP!

I am trying to create an HTML box with a WebYep Action in it that will automatically expand as the content within it gets longer. Currently, the overflow is just flowing outside of the box:

Please feel free to test this page:

User: admin
Password: (leave blank)

What I would like to have happen is to have the box expand, essentially lengthening the page itself, without it’s own scrollbar- only using the browser’s scroll bar for the entire page. Here is a link to the FW test file:

I know this is possible, I just can’t figure it out and it’s driving me NUTS! Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

if you change the body to be extremely long, the entire page gets longer.

Try this:

  1. Select your HTML box.

  2. In the Inspector go to Dimensions and click on the icon/button for
    height. The centre top and bottom grab handles on the HTML container
    should turn red and the box will collapse to the height of the WebYep
    item. (You may have to click twice first time - it normally toggles
    between expanding and fixed height states).

  3. Select the WebYep Item in in the Inspector under Screen
    Measurements and change the Width to the same as you HTML container.

The Container should now expand vertically to fit the copy content.

How can I get the green box to expand with the blue box and always be 10px from the bottom of the page?

Here is what I am shooting for:

You need to make the blue box an inline container for both to expand.

  1. Draw you green box as an HTML item.

  2. Click inside so that the I-bar (cursor) is flashing and go to
    Insert on the menu bar and click HTML Item.

  3. Re-size the HTML Item to be your blue box and add your WebYeb item
    as before.

  4. Select your blue box an in the Inspector go to Margin > Custom and
    set to Bottom: 10

You should also set you green box so that the middle grab handles are
red expanding state) as previously described.

Your green page will grow to the length required and your blue box
will always be 10 px from the bottom of the green box.

If you want both green and blue boxes to be spaced the same way from a
background page , the same principle applies. Make the background an
HTML container and nest the other boxes inside.

However, if you add other elements inside the background page you are
beginning to construct a ‘box model’ which raises other issues, but
here is a tutorial on this and previous threads about it. Just search
for ‘Box Model’ in FreewayTalk.

When I first saw this post I thought Todd wanted a full height green panel that could also expand if the content was deeper than the window, though from reading the later threads I think what Todd was looking for was just an expanding box…
but it did get me thinking, what if I wanted to have a full height panel that could accommodate more than could be seen even if you scroll.
So I did some experiments and these are a few examples including the normal expanding html box.

There’s always another way Max and you set me thinking, too. If the
problem lies with a verbose client taking control of content, you can
also use WebYep in conjunction with the Scroll Layer Actions. Crude
example here:

http://www.herefornow.co.uk/Sandbox/Scroll_Test/index.php

Just click "many words’ and mouseover the arrowheads to see. (Content
placed via WebYep).

Now the client can ramble on forever! (But no guarantee anyone will
read it all!!).
