Embedded View Applet fix

Here is a fix for the embedded view problem on a browser (if your view is embedded in a frame). Code Explanation – Let's assume that there are two frames, "Left" and "Right" and the view is embedded in the "Right" Frame.

This code attempts to resize the frame in which the view is embedded causing the view applet to resize. This fix has worked for me every time.

To use the code simply create an action button on the form where the view is embedded and paste this code. Whenever the view doesn't load properly and shows a gray box then click on the button to fix the view display.

//Browser Check
ns4 = (document.layers)? true:false
ie = (document.all)? true:false

if(ie) {
if (parent.document.body.cols == '25%,75%')
{parent.document.body.cols = '25%,75%';}

if(ns4) {
if (parent.self.screen.cols == '25%,75%')
{parent.self.screen.cols = '25%,75%';}
