maxWidth property

Sets or retrieves the maximum width for an element.

CSS 2.1, Section 10.4

Syntax

Integer value = object.put_maxWidth(Variant v);Integer value = object.get_maxWidth(Variant* sMaxWidth);

Property values

Type: VARIANT

The maximum width for an element.

length (length)

Floating-point number followed by an absolute units designator (cm, mm, in, pt, or pc) or a relative units designator (em, ex, or px). For more information about the supported length units, see CSS Values and Units Reference.

percentage (percentage)

Integer followed by a % that specifies a percentage of the containing block width to use as the maximum width of the element. If the width of the containing block is not explicitly set, then the element has no maximum width and the IHTMLCurrentStyle4::maxWidth property is interpreted as 0%. For more information on containing blocks and how their widths are computed, see the Cascading Style Sheets, Level 2.1 (CSS2.1) specification.

Remarks

IHTMLCurrentStyle4::maxWidth was introduced in Windows Internet Explorer 7.

The IHTMLCurrentStyle4::minWidth/IHTMLCurrentStyle4::maxWidth attributes apply to floating and absolutely positioned block and inline-block elements, as well as some intrinsic controls. They do not apply to non-replaced inline elements, such as table rows and row/column groups. (A "replaced" element has intrinsic dimensions, such as an img or textArea.)

This property is enabled only under the strict !DOCTYPE.
