Problem setting height in IE and button border

Recommended Posts

I am having a problem with IE, I just can't figure out how to fix it. In firefox it [a href=\"http://img132.imageshack.us/img132/7467/firefoxprob1nw.gif\" target=\"_blank\"]looks ok[/a] apart from the fact the button won't go bellow the table (even though there are <br />) but in IE there are two problems [a href=\"http://img159.imageshack.us/img159/7830/ieproblem3ul.gif\" target=\"_blank\"]as you can see[/a]. The button has no border at the bottom of the button and the blue image background (members info and change your password) should be set to 25px in height, but in IE it doesn't use that height. Any ideas?

Here is my code html code for these tables:
[code]<center>
<div class='member_wrap'>
<form action='./password_proccess.php' method='post'>
<div class='member_left'>
        <table class='main_table_members' cellpadding='0' cellspacing='1'>
        <tr>
        <td width='100%' class='table_top'>Members Info</td>
        </tr>
        <tr>
        <td class='column1' width='100%'><b>Welcome John Smith</b><br /><br />
        • <a href='/customers/help.php'>Help Page</a><br />
        • <a href='/customers/support.php'>Contact Support</a><br />
        • <a href='/customers/order.php'>Products</a><br />
        • <a href='/customers/email_edit.php'>Change my email</a><br />
        • <a href='/customers/password_edit.php'>Change my password</a><br />
        • <a href='/customers/logout.php'>Logout</a></td>
        </tr>
        </table>
</div>
<div class='member_right'>
        <table class='main_table_members' cellpadding='0' cellspacing='1'>
        <tr>
        <td width='100%' colspan='2' class='table_top'>Change Your Password</td>
        </tr>
        <tr>
        <td class='column1' width='50%' valign='top'><b>Your new password:</b></td>
        <td class='column2' width='50%' valign='top'><input type='password' name='password_edit' /></td>
        </tr>
        <tr>
        <td class='column1' width='50%' valign='top'><b>Confirm your current password:</b></td>
        <td class='column2' width='50%' valign='top'><input type='password' name='password_edit2' /></td>
        </tr>
        <tr>
        <td class='column1' width='50%' valign='top'><b>Confirm your current password:</b></td>
        <td class='column2' width='50%' valign='top'><input type='password' name='password_confirm' /></td>
        </tr>
        </table>
</div>
<br /><br /><input type="submit" value="Save Changes" />
</form>
</div>
</center>[/code]

Here is the css used:
[code].member_wrap {
    width: 98%;
    text-align: center;
}

.member_left {
    float: left;
    width: 28%;
    /*height: 100%;*/
    text-align: center;
}

.member_right {
    float: right;
    border: 0;
    width: 71%;
    text-align: left;
}

.main_table_members {
    margin: 0;
    padding: 0;
    width: 100%;
    height: 200px;
    background-color: #FFFFFF;
    border: 1px solid #000000;
}

.table_top {
    margin: 0;
    padding: 5px;
    height: 25px;
    text-align: center;
    background: #175299 url("/images/top_bg.gif");
    color: #FFFFFF;
    font-weight: bold;
    border: 0;
}

.column1 {
    margin: 0;
    padding: 5px;
    text-align: left;
    background-color: #dbdbdb;
    border: 0;
    vertical-align: top;
}

.column2 {
    margin: 0;
    padding: 5px;
    text-align: left;
    background-color: #cbcbcb;
    border: 0;
}

.column3 {
    margin: 0;
    padding: 5px;
    text-align: left;
    background-color: #e3e3e3;
    border: 0;
}[/code]

looks like a padding issue

add this

form{
padding:0px;
margin:0px;
}

and see what happens.

just for giggles take the [code]<center></center>[/code] out of the HTML so it aligns left and see what happens.

I don't see any style for the button in the code you posted, but IE will hide the border if the inside content is a tiny bigger than the actuall container.

You can fix it by removing the height of the button and just setting the padding-top and padding-bottom.

Also, you need to clear the floated layers before the button
[code]
.clear_div {font-size:1px;
     overflow:hidden;
     clear:both;}
[/code]
[code]
</div>
<div class="clear_div">&nbsp;</div>
<input type="submit" value="Save Changes" class="button" />
[/code]
This should fix the firefox issue

I cannot find your button style in the code you posted, so I cannot really find the bug. Just a random guess,

Try to remove the height out of the style, and add padding to the top and bottom.

If you can post the style for the button, I may find the bug.
