Repeat region horizontal positioning errors

I've produced a repeat region with the data assist wizard to have 5 columns and it works a treat except for when you load a page before the images have been cached. When the page loads the repeat regions expand on the width then shrink back their proper size, when the page is viewed again it appears fine, this obvioulsy is not right can you help.

Also my client wants the columns to vary dependanty on the size of the screen that it is viewed on e.g 5 columns on an 18" monitor and 8 columns on a 21" monitor is this possible.

not sure if this post should be in the dataassist forum.

I can't answer the first part, but...

Screen size can't be determined by a browser, what you would need to do is use the screen resolution, showing a different layout depending on the resolution of the browser.

i should think its possible, but have not attempted it

One thing you can try is to preload the images. This would cache the images so they don't have to load and the images wouldn't cause the layout to show up and then change.

As for the different amount of columns for the different screen size, as Craig said, the size of the monitor doesn't determine the resolution that the browser is being displayed at. You would want to get the browser width and display a certain number of rows depending on that. This would have to be something you'd implement on your own though, since it would require custom coding to achieve.

I can see what you're referring to. What you can do is to put a div around the image and specify the height and width on that div so the space is taken up before the image is loaded.
