JQuery - .attr() not working

JQuery - .attr() not working

JQuery - .attr() not working

Still struggling with fancybox and looking for a work around. At this point, I am attempting to change the height property of a layer using


function resizefancy(newheight) {
$(".fancybox-inner").attr({ height: newheight });

I do not get any visible errors but yet, the layer remains intact and does not resize ... what can I possibly be doing wrong?

The good thing about not knowing is the opportunity to learn - Yours truly, 2008.

RE: JQuery - .attr() not working

Is height an attribute and not a style? To change things like height I would usually use the $(elem).css() method

Or for fancybox rather than a normal element you can set the height options in the constructor $(elem).fancybox({height:whatever})

Or if you just want to resize the box for the current content you can call $.fancybox.update()
