Dojo Dgrid - Use remaining space in block


I have a block like this:

<div class="container"> <div class="someStuff">Some stuff of unknown height</div> <div class="myDGrid" data-dojo-attach-point="dgrid"></div> </div>

The DGrid is started like this:

new (declare([OnDemandGrid, DijitRegistry]))({ store: ..., columns: ... }, this.dgrid);


<ul><li>The container block has some height. </li> <li>The someStuff block has some height that is dynamically set. </li> </ul>

The myDGrid block contains a Dojo DGrid. It should use the remainder of the space in container. For example:

<ul><li>If container is 400px and someStuff is 200px then myDGrid should be 200px. </li> <li>If container is 300px and someStuff is someStuff is 10px then myDGrid should be 290px.</li> </ul>

The dgrid should have scrollbars if all rows cannot be shown.

What is the best way to do this?


One solution is to change the html to this:

<div class="container"> <div class="someStuff">Some stuff of unknown height</div> <div class="containsDGrid"> <div class="myDGrid" data-dojo-attach-point="dgrid"></div> </div> </div>

And then use CSS like this:

.container { display: table; } .someStuff { display: table-row; } .containsDGrid { display: table-row; height: 100%; } .dgrid { width: 100%; height: 100%; } .dgrid .dgrid-scroller { overflow-y: auto; overflow-x: hidden; }
