    stretching site

    Level 7
      I've seen sites that always fill the browser and resize whenever the browser
      size is changed. They still look good at various sizes. How is this done?

          Its called "fluid design".

            Dan,

            that might work for me. thanks. i did come across a site a few year ago
            where the site seemed to resize as the browser was resizing. I'm not sure
            if the site used flash or something else. but based on your example it
            seems that the dimensions change on the mouse up not in realtime as i resize
            the browser. obviously i prefer it to resize as the browser size is changed
            in realtime

              Dan,

              also, I imported a jpeg in your exaple and that doesn't change size at all
              when the browser is resized. I'm very new to flash. would the jpg have to
              be converted to a vector shape? the site I mentioned before has a very
              clean image. I've heard that jpg's converted to vector shapes don't look so
              good

              craig
