    Hi there --

    I've built a little Javascript function to properly set the height of my Splitters when they're loaded on a TabPanel that keeps them hidden at the completion of the page's load event.  However, there's trouble in paradise: When I try to grab the new height variable with a call to pane.getContentElement().scrollHeight... I get zero as a result!

    This definitely isn't right; there's a 600-pixel tall image in the pane.  What's going on?



    function ResetRadPaneHeight(splitterID, paneID) {
        var splitter = $find(splitterID);
        if (splitter) {
            var pane = splitter.getPaneById(paneID);
            var height = pane.getContentElement().scrollHeight;
            if (height != 0) { // if height is 0, something is amiss...
                alert('For some reason ' + paneID + '.getContentElement().scrollHeight = 0');
        } else {
            // recursively try this function again in 1 second
            setTimeout('ResetRadPaneHeight(\'' + splitterID + '\', \'' + paneID + '\');', 1000);

    Hi Jesse,

    I tried to reproduce the problem with the provided JavaScript function but to no avail. Could you please provide more detailed information regarding the specific scenario?
    • Which version of RadControls and .NET Framework are used in the application?
    • Under which browser and its version the problem occurs?
    • Could you please provide sample runnable project that reproduces the problem so we can investigate it further?

    For your convenience I have attached my test project. Please modify it to a point where the problem occurs, open a support ticket and send it back - we will check it right away.

    All the best,
    the Telerik team
