I am very new to JavaScript and am trying to use JavaScript to determine the height of a div. The div starts in the middle of the browser window and I need it to extend to the bottom of the window. How can the window height be determined and used to accomplish this?

Thanks in advance!


Thanks for the suggestion. I have looked into jQuery today and can use it to find the window and div height, but how can I account for the offset for a centered div?

divide by 2 (half the width of the div)

div.left = (window.width / 2) - (div.width / 2)

That should center the div (you'll want this to happen on the resize event as well).

Thanks for leading me in the right direction! I got everything working correctly.
