html - working - set div height to window height jquery




Make a div 100% height of the browser window (20)

This stuff will resize height of content automatically according to your Browser. I hope this will work for you. Just try this example given bellow.

You have to set up only height:100%.

  html,body {
  height:100%;
  margin:0;
}
.content {
  height:100%;
  min-height:100%;
  position:relative;
}
.content-left {
  height:auto;
  min-height:100%;
  float:left;
  background:#ddd;
  width:50%;
  position:relative;
}

#one {
  background: url(http://cloud.niklausgerber.com/1a2n2I3J1h0M/red.png) center center no-repeat scroll     #aaa;
  width:50%;
  position:relative;
  float:left;
}

#two {
 background: url(http://cloud.niklausgerber.com/1b0r2D2Z1y0J/dark-red.png) center center no-repeat scroll #520E24;
  width:50%;
  float:left;
  position:relative;
  overflow-y:scroll;  
}
<div class='content' id='one'></div>
<div class='content-left' id='two'></div>

I have a layout with two columns - a left div and a right div.

The right div has a grey background-color, and I need it to expand vertically depending on the height of the user's browser window. Right now, the background-color ends at the last piece of content in that div.

I've tried height:100%, min-height:100%; etc.


100vw === 100% of the width of the viewport.

100vh === 100% of the height of the viewport.

If you want to set the div width or height 100% of browser-window-size you should use

for width: 100vw

for height: 100vh

or if you want to set it smaller size use css calc function. Example:

#example { width: calc(100vw - 32px) }


Actually what worked for me best is using vh property, in my react application in wanted the div to match the page high even when resized tried height: 100%; , overflow-y: auto; , none of them worked when setting height:(your percent)vh; it worked as intended. Note : if you are using padding, round corners etc make sure to subtract those values from you vh property percent or it's add extra height and make scroll bars appear, here's my sample:

.frame {
  background-color: rgb(33, 2, 211);
  height: 96vh;
  padding: 1% 3% 2% 3%;
  border: 1px solid rgb(212, 248, 203);
  border-radius: 10px;
  display: grid;
  grid-gap: 5px;
  grid-template-columns: repeat(6, 1fr);
  grid-template-rows: 50px 100px minmax(50px, 1fr) minmax(50px, 1fr) minmax(50px, 1fr);

}

Add min-height: 100% and don't specify a height (or put it on auto). It totally did the job for me:

.container{     
    margin: auto;
    background-color: #909090;
    width: 60%;
    padding: none;
    min-height: 100%;
}

Block elements consume the full width of their parent, by default.

This is how they meet their design requirement, which is to stack vertically.

9.4.1 Block formatting contexts

In a block formatting context, boxes are laid out one after the other, vertically, beginning at the top of a containing block.

This behavior, however, does not extend to height.

By default, most elements are the height of their content (height: auto).

Unlike with width, you need to specify a height if you want extra space.

Therefore, keep these two things in mind:

  • unless you want full width, you need to define the width of a block element
  • unless you want content height, you need to define the height of an element

.Contact {
  display: flex;     /* full width by default */
  min-height: 100vh; /* use full height of viewport, at a minimum */
}

.left {
  flex: 0 0 60%;
  background-color: tomato;
}

.right {
  flex: 1;
  background-color: pink;
}

body { margin: 0; } /* remove default margins */
<div class="Contact">
  <section class="left">
    <div class="">
      <h1>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat. Duis aute irure dolor in reprehenderit in voluptate velit esse cillum dolore eu fugiat nulla pariatur.

    </div>
  </section>
  <section class="right">
    <img />
  </section>
</div>

Easiest:

html,
body {
  height: 100%;
  min-height: 100%;
}
body {
  position: relative;
  background: purple;
  margin: 0;
  padding: 0;
}
.fullheight {
  display: block;
  position: relative;
  background: red;
  height: 100%;
  width: 300px;
}
<html class="">

<body>
  <div class="fullheight">
    This is full height.
  </div>
</body>

</html>

Here is something that is not exactly like what you had above but could be helpful to some.

body {
  display: flex;
  flex-direction: column;
  height: 100vh;
  margin: 0px;
}

#one {
  background-color: red;
}

#two {
  margin-top: 0px;
  background-color: black;
  color: white;
  overflow-y: scroll;
}

Here's a fix for the height.

In your CSS use:

#your-object: height: 100vh;

For browser that don't support vh-units, use modernizr.

Add this script (to add detection for vh-units)

// https://github.com/Modernizr/Modernizr/issues/572
// Similar to http://jsfiddle.net/FWeinb/etnYC/
Modernizr.addTest('cssvhunit', function() {
    var bool;
    Modernizr.testStyles("#modernizr { height: 50vh; }", function(elem, rule) {   
        var height = parseInt(window.innerHeight/2,10),
            compStyle = parseInt((window.getComputedStyle ?
                      getComputedStyle(elem, null) :
                      elem.currentStyle)["height"],10);

        bool= !!(compStyle == height);
    });
    return bool;
});

Finally use this function to add the height of the viewport to #your-object if the browser doesn't support vh-units:

$(function() {
    if (!Modernizr.cssvhunit) {
        var windowH = $(window).height();
        $('#your-object').css({'height':($(window).height())+'px'});
    }
});

If you want to set the height of a <div> or any element, you should set the height of <body> and <html> to 100% too. Then you can set the height of element with 100% :)

Here is an example:

body, html {
  height: 100%;
}

#right {
  height: 100%;
}

If you’re able to absolutely position your elements,

position: absolute;
top: 0;
bottom: 0;

would do it.


There are a couple of CSS3 measurement units called:

Viewport-Percentage (or Viewport-Relative) Lengths

What are Viewport-Percentage Lengths?

From the linked W3 Candidate Recommendation above:

The viewport-percentage lengths are relative to the size of the initial containing block. When the height or width of the initial containing block is changed, they are scaled accordingly.

These units are vh (viewport height), vw (viewport width), vmin (viewport minimum length) and vmax (viewport maximum length).

How can this be used to make a divider fill the height of the browser?

For this question, we can make use of vh: 1vh is equal to 1% of the viewport's height. That is to say, 100vh is equal to the height of the browser window, regardless of where the element is situated in the DOM tree:

HTML

<div></div>

CSS

div {
    height:100vh;
}

This is literally all that's needed. Here is a JSFiddle example of this in use.

What browsers support these new units?

This is currently supported on all up-to-date major browsers apart from Opera Mini. Check out Can I use... for further support.

How can this be used with multiple columns?

In the case of the question at hand, featuring a left and a right divider, here is a JSFiddle example showing a two-column layout involving both vh and vw.

How is 100vh different to 100%?

Take this layout for example:

<body style="height:100%">
    <div style="height:200px">
        <p style="height:100%; display:block;">Hello, world!</p>
    </div>
</body>

The p tag here is set to 100% height, but because its containing div has 200px height, 100% of 200px becomes 200px, not 100% of the body height. Using 100vh instead means that the p tag will be 100% height of the body regardless of the div height. Take a look at this accompanying JSFiddle to easily see the difference!


There are several methods available for setting the height of a <div> to 100%.

Method (A):

html,
body {
  height: 100%;
  min-height: 100%;
}
.div-left {
  height: 100%;
  width: 50%;
  background: green;
}
.div-right {
  height: 100%;
  width: 50%;
  background: gray;
}
<div class="div-left"></div>
<div class="div-right"></div>

Method (B) using vh:

html,
body {
  height: 100%;
  min-height: 100%;
}
.div-left {
  height: 100vh;
  width: 50%;
  background: green;
  float: left;
}
.div-right {
  height: 100vh;
  width: 50%;
  background: gray;
  float: right;
}
<div class="div-left"></div>
<div class="div-right"></div>

Method (c) using flex box:

html,
body {
  height: 100%;
  min-height: 100%;
}
.wrapper {
  height: 100%;
  min-height: 100%;
  display: flex;
}
.div-left {
  width: 50%;
  background: green;
}
.div-right {
  width: 50%;
  background: gray;
}
<div class="wrapper">
  <div class="div-left"></div>
  <div class="div-right"></div>
</div>

This worked for me:

html, body {
    height: 100%; /* IMPORTANT!!! stretches viewport to 100% */
}

#wrapper {
    min-height: 100%; /* min. height for modern browser */
    height:auto !important; /* important rule for modern Browser */
    height:100%; /* min. height for IE */
    overflow: hidden !important; /* FF scroll-bar */
}

Taken from this page.


Try the following css :

html {
    min-height: 100%;
    margin: 0;
    padding: 0;
}

body {
    height: 100%;
}

#right {
    min-height: 100%;
}

Try to set height:100% in html & body

html, 
body {
    height: 100%;
}

And if you want to 2 div height same use or set the parent element display:flex property.


You can use display: flex and height: 100vh

html, body {
  height: 100%;
  margin: 0px;
}
body {
  display: flex;
}

.left, .right {
  flex: 1;
}

.left {
  background: orange;
}

.right {
  background: cyan;
}
<div class="left">left</div>
<div class="right">right</div>

You can use the following CSS to make a div 100% of the height of the browser window:

display: block;
position: relative;
bottom: 0;
height: 100%;

You can use the view-port unit in CSS :

HTML :

<div id="my-div">Hello World!</div>

CSS :

#my-div {
    height:100vh; /*vh stands for view-port height, 1vh is 1% of screen height*/
}

You need to do two things, one is to set the height to 100% which you already did. Second is set the position to absolute. That should do the trick.

html,
body {
  height: 100%;
  min-height: 100%;
  position: absolute;
}

just use "vh" unit instead of "px", which mean view-port height.

height:100vh;
