How to resize the issue tab area dinamically?


My plug-in fetches a lot of data form the server after it is loaded. So, the required height to display all the new content can be greater than the available.

How can a JIRA issue tab panel be re-sized by using java-script to allow all the content to be visible?

(Please, see the attached picture)

Many thanks,

This widget could not be displayed.

You should put your content in a DIV element with scrollbars

<div style="overflow: scroll">

<!-- your content here -->


It does not work :(, content is clipped. The scrollbars are shown but not activated when the content is bigger than the tab area.

Answering myself... it is automatically resized to fit the content size so there is nothing to do.

The problem was the <div> -> <svg> -> graph DOM hierachy. Graphs can be painted out of the svg container boundaries... reagrdless any <div> setting.
