View Full Version : Ap Div

01-26-2010, 04:50 PM
Evening all
I've been building a site which is made up of tables (because I'm trying to learn div's) I have an image for my header and a swf movie file underneath that. I want to put a small promotional image half over the header and the swf movie. I have managed to do it using an AP Div and it looks great on my monitor but I know it wont be in the same place on a smaller or larger monitor. Is there another setting to lock an AP div other than top and left of browser? I have tried to do it with a different div but it either goes before or after my table and not over the image and swf. HELP please!

AP Divs are placed relative to the browser window UNLESS they are within a parent div with the CSS position property set to relative. In that case they are positioned relative to the parent div.

That said, why are you using a table if you're trying to learn to use divs (and CSS positioning I assume)?

Hi DWCourse
I have had to use tables because I've been struggling with div's. I'm trying to introduce myself to them gradually. Can I put a div around my tables and call it a wrapper div and then positoion the ap div within that?

Yes, I think you can. Try it.

Yippee I've sorted it. I put a wrapper div around my tables and made the ap div reletive to the wrapper. Hopefully getting to grips a little now with divs. Thanks for the help
