Re: Resize the height and width of a container.

i had problems with that function, too. have you set the sizeunit and/or the containerflow? otherwise, what i did in the end was setting width and height of the container directly instead of using that size function

I'm a bird from outer space. But I'm not flappy o.o

Re: Resize the height and width of a container.

Remove the container first, then set container.width=some_value; container.height=some_value;
