How do I get asp to read the style properties of a div?

Recommended Posts

Hi all I have a page where many divs are generated by a database. Each of these divs has a set of Style properties stored in the database ie. Top, Left, Width, Height…<%tid = 1 do while not objRS.eof tmpStrng = "<div id='div" & tid & "' class='drsElement drsMoveHandle' style=" tmpStrng = tmpStrng + "left:" & objRS("pX") & "px;" tmpStrng = tmpStrng + "top:" & objRS("pY") & "px;" tmpStrng = tmpStrng + "width:" & objRS("pW") & "px;" tmpStrng = tmpStrng + "height:" & objRS("pH") & "px;" tmpStrng = tmpStrng + "border-width:" & objRS("pBorder") & ";>" tmpStrng = tmpStrng + "background-image:url(" & objRS("pBkg") & ");" tmpStrng = tmpStrng + "<div style='overflow:hidden;height:100%'>" tmpStrng = tmpStrng + "<img src=" & objRS("pImage") & " width='100%' height='100%'>" tmpStrng = tmpStrng + "</div></div>" response.write(tmpStrng) tid = tid + 1 objRS.movenext Loop%> Then some JavaScript allows you to drag and drop, and resize all these divs. No problems there. Now, when one clicks “Save” (submit), I need the page to loop through all the divs and retrieve their new Style properties, and save the data back to the database. All of the database scripting is asp, and I am using an Access database. How do I get asp to read the style properties of a div?ThanksDave

The way I would go about solving this problem would be to have just 2 fields in the database width and height and as it is being constructed by asp to pull the values from the database and write them in the style. Then have 2 hidden fields on the page that have the take on the value of the width and height of each of the dividers. Then when the user hits save it would send the values of the hidden fields to the asp page which would update the database.
