Browser Compatibility

I have two strings of IE code that I can’t find Mozilla equivalents for.

String 1. I need the full page height of the iFrame. Not the screen height. This works in IE but not others.
[INDENT]document.body.scrollHeight[/INDENT]

String 2. Calling a function that’s in the parent window from the child(iFrame) window. Both of these work in IE, but not other browsers.
[INDENT]window.top.myFunction()[/INDENT]
[INDENT]window.parent.myFunction()[/INDENT]

I know the problem isn’t the function. It’s been tested on all major browsers and works fine.

If anyone has any idea please respond and thank you!

@nbcrockettauthorAug 08.2005 — Is there anyone who can help me with this question.

@UltimaterAug 08.2005 — A wild guess (untested):
<i>
</i>var sh=(document.body.scrollheight &gt;= document.body.clientHeight)?
document.body.scrollheight:document.body.clientHeight;

2) try it without "window."
top.myFunction()

parent.myFunction()

@nbcrockettauthorAug 09.2005 — The function code didn't work and I can't test the height code properly without it. I do have a question about the height code. Is the '?' mark supposed to be there or was that a typo and it should be ';'. Thanks for your suggestions. Do you have any other ideas that might make this work?

@UltimaterAug 09.2005 — Yes the question mark is supposed to be there. You can put that statement on one line if you wish (doesn't make a difference). I just put it on two so you can see the whole code w/o having to scroll.

Let me show you a simple example using the question mark:
<i>
</i>&lt;script type="text/javascript"&gt;
var a=(true)?"yes":"no"
alert(a)
var b=(false)?"yes":"no"
alert(b)
&lt;/script&gt;

Success!
