Description Ian Springer 2009-11-06 11:50:00 EST
This open-source library provides a way to set the height of an IFRAME to the same height as the content inside it. This allows the IFRAME to be rendered without its own vertical scrollbar, when the content goes past the bottom of the browser window.

The license for the library is here: http://www.dynamicdrive.com/notice.htm
Comment 1 Charles Crouch 2009-11-06 13:02:07 EST
From the link above
"Users may NOT, however, redistribute or repost/ resell for download any DHTML script found on Dynamic Drive. Redistribution is defined as re-offering our scripts for download in any fashion, whether on a competing web site, an application that generates code snippets, or a CD-ROM collection of CSS/JavaScript codes etc."

So IMHO, remembering that IANAL, this license looks unacceptable
Comment 2 Charles Crouch 2009-11-06 13:50:07 EST
This license just doesn't seem in any way compatible with RHQ's GPL license so we're not going to be able to use it
