#9866 closed bug (invalid)

Unable to get height on DIV tag that has begun fading in...

Reported by: [email protected] Owned by: [email protected]
Priority: undecided Milestone: None
Component: css Version: 1.6.2

Blocked by: Blocking:


I have a function that fades out a DIV, changes the content of the DIV, fades in the DIV and the resizes the font in case there's too much text to fit on one screen...

Here is the calling line that doesn't work anymore:

$("#Request").fadeOut(1000, function() {$("#description").html('<p>' + sDescriptions[iRequest]) + '</p>';$("#title").html(sTitles[iRequest]); $("#Request").fadeIn(1000); AdjustFontSize(" & iScreenH & "); $("#Request").vAlign(); $("#Request").focus(); });

The AdjustFontSize function uses this code, which returns 0 for the height:

divHeight = $('#description').height();

This happens in I.E. 8 (haven't tested other browsers), and was not a problem in version 1.6.1 of JQuery.

Because we get so many tickets, we often need to return them to the initial reporter for more information. If that person does not reply within 14 days, the ticket will automatically be closed, and that has happened in this case. If you still are interested in pursuing this issue, feel free to add a comment with the requested information and we will be happy to reopen the ticket if it is still valid. Thanks!

At the point where AdjustFontSize is called it would seem that the element isn't yet visible, thus the height of 0. (Assuming that #description is nested under #Request, but that's just a guess since there was no test case.) This seems better triaged on a forum, I don't think it's a bug.
