Customizing the DA detail.php page Q2

Customizing the DA detail.php page Q2

I am working through the DA gsg and I am stuck on page 21 of the PDF guide.
This is the instruction that is giving me a problem.

"There’s one final adjustment to make: remove the static height value to allow the header area to expand dynamically.
12.From the Tag Selector, choose <div #WADAPageHeaderArea>. Select Window > CSS Styles and switch to Current mode. In the Properties pane, select the Height entry and click the the trashcan icon to remove it."

But on my page when I click <div #WADAPageHeaderArea> in the Properties Pane beneath the page I have DIV ID, Class, and Edit CSS. If I click Edit CSS to reveal CSS Styles Current or I select Window > CSS Styles and switch to Current mode and then locate height in Summary I have a figure of 200px. When I select the height entry there is no trash can icon

What am I doing wrong please?

Hi,

Maybe you need to be editing the .css page containing the css rule that is linked to your current page.

You can always view css rules contained in a page but if that rule is there via a linked css rules page you will need to edit that one. You can see any linked or referenced pages at the top left corner of your document (near the tabs)

Hello Russ and thank you for responding to my question.
In fact the problem was me (nothing new there then) and my lack of familiarity with DW CS3 terminology.
The solution turned on like a light bulb this morning when I did something different. On my screen I had too many window tabs open (mine are on the RHS of the screen with the Files tab always open)
Once I closed the Files tab all was revealed as the say. Basically I had been obscuring that part of the Tabbed window that contained the CSS Styles/Current Properties because too may tabs were open and the Files tab content was taking the majority of the screen area.
I have been confusing the "Properties" pane that appears under the full page with the "Properties" pane that is part of CSS Styles/Current.
Not knowing there were two areas called "Properties" gave rise to my inability to select the correct one.
I guess this was an excellent example of "Most problems have simple orgins so most solutions are therefore simple"
Thanks again for your help - it helped me learn something new.
