Full height background color with bootstrap?

So I have a page and am using bootstrap for styling. Am trying to force the background-color to be full height, but because my content doesn't fill, it leaves a large white space at bottom.

My code starts as:

<div class="container-fluid" style="background-color: #f5faff; font-family: Segoe UI; padding: 0;">
<div style="background-color: #0070c0; min-height:100px;">
<h1 style="color: #ffffff; font-size: 24px; padding-left:20px; padding-top: 30px;">Problem Phase Worksheet:</h1>
</div>
<form class="form-horizontal" role="form" style="padding-left: 20px; padding-top: 20px;">
<div class="col-md-6">
<div class="form-group">
<span style="color: #0070c0; font-size: 18px;">Inputs</span>
</div>
<div class="form-group">
<label class="control-label" for="criteria" style="font-size: 14px;">Criteria: <a href="#criteriaModal" data-toggle="modal"><span style="color: #afabab;" class="glyphicon glyphicon-question-sign"></span></a></label>
<input type="text" class="form-control" id="criteria" ng-model="criteria" style="font-size: 14px;" placeholder="(e.g. more than 80%)">
</div>
<div class="form-group">
<label class="control-label" for="customer" style="font-size: 14px;">Customer: <a href="#criteriaModal" data-toggle="modal"><span style="color: #afabab;" class="glyphicon glyphicon-question-sign"></span></a></label>
<input type="text" class="form-control" id="customer" ng-model="customer" style="font-size: 14px;" placeholder="(e.g. enterprise system admins)">
<!-- <p style="font-size: 12px;">(e.g. Infrastructure admins, network engineer, etc..)</p> -->
</div>
<div class="form-group">
<label class="control-label" for="task" style="font-size: 14px;">Job to be Done: <a href="#criteriaModal" data-toggle="modal"><span style="color: #afabab;" class="glyphicon glyphicon-question-sign"></span></a></label>
<input type="text" class="form-control" id="task" ng-model="task" style="font-size: 14px;" placeholder="(e.g. keeping servers up to date)">
</div>
<div class="form-group">
<label class="control-label" for="problem" style="font-size: 14px;">Problem: <a href="#criteriaModal" data-toggle="modal"><span style="color: #afabab;" class="glyphicon glyphicon-question-sign"></span></a></label>
<input type="text" class="form-control" id="problem" ng-model="problem" style="font-size: 14px;" placeholder="(e.g. it takes to long (24+ hours) )">
</div>
</div>

</div>


And looks like:

What am I doing wrong on this? I have tried using the row-fluid class on parent div and all, but no luck. Thoughts?

Answer

container-fluid does not set the div to be full height

try setting the background-color directly to

<body>

instead, if your design allows it
