Javascript to auto scale webpage

Question

Xendrome    5,582

So, I am looking for some type of Javascript that I can put into an HTML site, which will zoom/stretch the page to take up the full width of the browser window, without losing the fixed width formatting.

 

Any suggestions?

Looks like that is a client-side add-on though? I need something that will basically detect the users resolution/browser window size, and fit the content specifically to that width, a server side script I can put into the HTML.

What about CSS3 responsive web design?

No JavaScript required, just uses CSS

 

Add

<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">

to the header, and then in the CSS file,

@media screen and (max-width: 320px) {

}

Or can always use Bootstrap 3.0, which uses responsive web design as well

CSS3 responsive is not what he needs in this case I think he wants it to work like a img element that gets bigger and smaller proportionally   :p

$(document).ready(function(){
	zoom = $(window).width()/$("body").width()*100;
	document.body.style.zoom = zoom+"%"
}

This might work, crazy code though.

So, like example not my site here, but similar issue - http://www.ci.mcminnville.or.us/

 

That site, if you are on a widescreen monitor, it's a fixed width size. If you press CTRL+ x 4 in your browser (I am on 2560x1440) it is then full screen, without as much empty space on each of the sides.

 

I'd like something like this to happen automatically depending on the users browser window size. without losing the formatting of the content.

body { zoom: 1.5; }

kind of works, in the HTML, but not in the CSS file, and I don't want to apply it to each and every html file.

Tried my code?

 

I tested following code myself on that site and it works:

$(document).ready(function(){
	zoom = $(window).width()/$("#wrapper").width()*100;
	document.body.style.zoom = zoom+"%"
}
$(window).on('resize', function(){
	zoom = $(window).width()/$("#wrapper").width()*100;
	document.body.style.zoom = zoom+"%"
});

	document.body.style.zoom = zoom+"%"
});

 

Where do I apply that into? Does that fall between <script></script> tags in the html?

 

BTW I did try 

html {
    zoom: 0.8; /* Old IE only */
    -moz-transform: scale(0.8);
    -webkit-transform: scale(0.8);
    transform: scale(0.8);
}

But that actually cut off like 20% of the top and I couldn't scroll up.

Make sure that you use the correct element in the code I gave, it could be body but also #wrapper depending on what is the fixed width css element container.

 

Just put it in a file called something.js

and add these 2 lines to your header in html:

<script src="//ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.10.2/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="something.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

Hmm not seeing any change in the formatting. I have

 

zoom.js in /scripts

$(document).ready(function(){
	zoom = $(window).width()/$("#body").width()*100;
	document.body.style.zoom = zoom+"%"
}
$(window).on('resize', function(){
	zoom = $(window).width()/$("#body").width()*100;
	document.body.style.zoom = zoom+"%"
});

And in index.html in the <head> section

<script src="/ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.10.2/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="/scripts/zoom.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

The first part of <body> and lines after it that specify the width

<body bgcolor="#89895d">
<div align="center"> <br/>
	<table width="748" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
		<tr>
			<td style="width: 240px">

Try just body instead of #body

Seems I typed } instead of }); for document ready...    try:

$(document).ready(function(){
	zoom = $(window).width()/$("body").width()*100;
	document.body.style.zoom = zoom+"%";
});
$(window).on('resize', function(){
	zoom = $(window).width()/$("body").width()*100;
	document.body.style.zoom = zoom+"%";
}); 

Tell me if it worked ^^

You made a mistake with jquery in <head>

<script src="/ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.10.2/jquery.min.js"></script>

should be:

<script src="//ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.10.2/jquery.min.js"></script>

// means for http://

 

And js in your case:

$(document).ready(function(){
	zoom = $(window).width()/$("body table tbody").width()*100;
	document.body.style.zoom = zoom+"%";
});
$(window).on('resize', function(){
	zoom = $(window).width()/$("body table tbody").width()*100;
	document.body.style.zoom = zoom+"%";
});

I downloaded it locally, the version - jquery-1.11.0.min.js and pointed to it in the <head> if that will work ok? also put that in PM just FYI

Ok this is working, Chrome, it's edge to edge, but can you load the live site now in IE 11, it's pushing the content to the far right. And BTW I just scaled it down to *75 instead of *100

 

Edit: Also IE8 same issue.

Yeah IE is a acting like a bad boy again...

Fix:

 

css:

body {
	overflow-x: hidden;
}

additional js file called iefix.js

function detectIE() {
	var ua = window.navigator.userAgent;
	var msie = ua.indexOf('MSIE ');
	var trident = ua.indexOf('Trident/');
	if (msie > 0) {
		return parseInt(ua.substring(msie + 5, ua.indexOf('.', msie)), 10);
	}
	if (trident > 0) {
		var rv = ua.indexOf('rv:');
		return parseInt(ua.substring(rv + 3, ua.indexOf('.', rv)), 10);
	}
}
$(document).ready(function(){
	if(detectIE()){
		fix = $(window).width()/$("body table tbody").width()*75/2;
		$("body").css("margin-left","-"+fix+"%");
	}
});
$(window).on('resize', function(){
	if(detectIE()){
		fix = $(window).width()/$("body table tbody").width()*75/2;
		$("body").css("margin-left","-"+fix+"%");
	}
});

Let's see if that works

 

Edit: Changed px to % in code

Edit2: added "-"+

Edit3: changed ,, to , just a typo

 

Should work now(just tested).

I don't understand what you're trying to do here or why you're applying a crazy hack like that in IE (especially on IE 11!). Clearly you're doing something wrong if you think that is necessary...
