---- Unwanted Spaces Between Rows Of Images

Yes, you're right. I didn't really go back to it -- yet. A friend is helping me with the project -- to keep going with the latest scheme.
|Just not a good enough reason to go back to the "crap" you had before. |
I'm not even keen on what a DIV is. DIVs were suggested as a way to "compartmentalize" the two fields the page should have, while also side stepping the limitations of tables. The layout is basically the same as a Google My Map. A Google My Map has two fields (which we'll call "columbs") -- a narrow one on the left containing the names and addresses of locations, and one on the right containing a street map image which fills the remainder of the browser window's width. When the list in the left columb becomes longer than the browser window, it overflows with the appearance of a scrollbar. The column with the map image has vertical and horizontal scroll bars from the start because the image it holds is around 4000 X 3000 pixels. Of course, in a Google map (or any other type of spherical map) it has no beginning and no end, so scrollbars are not applicable. Instead, a 'move' tool (looking like a hand) or 'panning' arrows are used to move the map around. However it's termed, and whatever tags need to be used, be they <TABLE>, <DIV> or <ZOINK>, I need to have two separate, independently scrolling areas of the Web page for the same reason that Google does, as well as any webmaster who can use this kind of common, simple, handy, functional layout.
|Why would you want the html structure be so that you need a "separate DIV" for the client list ? |
And what do you mean by "separate DIV", cause it *is* in a div of it's own...
No, I didn't get to try that -- I though about it, though. I realized that, even though the client list would remain fixed, it would still partially cover the map image unless the map was in its own container.
|Did you try just removing the float on .clientList and replacing it with position:fixed and positioning it where you want it on the screen ? |
Guess I should've asked the one who gave it to me, "what is it, and where do I put it?
It was something to force the collapse of spaces between rows of images in my original scheme using thousands of place holders as a method of positioning images. As yet, no one has provided a solution to that question. I'm on a new course to make the page I want but, as I've saved that version of the document, I'd be interested to hear a suggestion on how I would have correctly applied that snippet -- and make the spaces collapse -- and I would test the code too, for my own satisfaction. That was the original issue in this thread even though I've advanced to better schemes for making my project -- with the help of all of you.
