resize question

Postby raja » Sat May 01, 2010 5:37 pm

I have used a pair of containers (one vertical, one horizontal) on the master page to detect when a page is resized, and use the actions area of these containers to run some scripts to handle page resizing.
I have noticed that when moving between pages of the same size, that if a page has a container say at the top, that the resize actions of the master page are triggered even though the actual page size has not changed. It seems to detect that a change in page size has occured because there is a container on the new page.

Is this normal, or is there a way to detect that only the full page size has changed?

I have not used a single container on the master page to detect page size change as this results in two messages if both the width and height of a page has changed in size. Using two containers on the master page lets me detect width and height changes seperately.

not waiting for a reply, I have introduced some new variables to store the WindowWidth and WindowHeight in. When a container triggers a resize the script now checks if the WindowWidth or height has changed. If no change then no resize action is taken.

Your method or checking the global [PubWidth] and [PubHeight] variables would be the way to determine if the window's size has changed.

another resize question

I have another resize question!
I have found using the container resize interrupts the execution of other scripts, sometimes resulting in unwanted settings, and would like to delay the resize action until other scripts have finished running.
Any suggestions would be welcomed.
I have tried the book/actions/idle but it runs repeatedly depending on the time set for idle. I would like the resize script to run only once, but as above after other scripts are finished.

I haven't tried this in a container resize action but use this method in other objects.

SetVar "[ScriptActive]" "1" important scripting here...
SetVar "[ScriptActive]" ""

If "[ScriptActive]" "=" "1"
...resize container actions here...

I'm not sure if this will help in your situation but it works for me in WebBrowser actions, etc...
