I've been given a task where one thing that is required is for me to add a variable height horizontal scroller, with a variable number of child elements that are displayed next to each other on a single line.
I'm having a great deal of trouble due to IE7 not having inline-block support. The usual hacks of trying to use float: left or inline div containing a block div are multi-lining the divs (I suspect because of the variable height requirement).
Has anyone ever had this problem before and managed to find a workable solution?
zoom: 1 and the *display: inline got me sorted thanks - I'll have to remember that one.
are you really required to support IE7 still?!
Unfortunately yes. Pretty big company with some bits of software kicking around that (so I'm told) require IE7 - so some users just exclusively use IE7. I've even seen some machines in one of the warehouses running Windows 97.
