I have implemented a
_repr_html_() function for my Python class so it can be displayed nicely in the notebook.
The HTML I create is dual purpose: wrapped in the full html/body tags for creating a web page to get viewed in a browser and only the relevant div for getting viewed in the notebook.
The div contains a nested div that uses the style settings “width: 100%; height: 100%” which in turn contains a nested div with “width: 100%; display: flex;” so that what I show there will automatically adapt to resizing of the browser window. That works well.
When I use that HTML with the notebook, the generated output nicely adapts to the width of the cell, but the height is always the same.
When I remove the “height: 100%”, the output size does not change.
When I set the height to some specific smaller value, the output size still does not change but instead the output is shown in a smaller viewport with a scroll bar on the right.
What I would like instead is for the viewport used to visualize my div becoming smaller.
Where does the height for the output in a cell come from? How can I change it for all cells, how can I change it for one particular cell?
