Twitter Bootstrap: div in container with 100% height

Using twitter bootstrap (2), I have a simple page with a nav bar, and inside the

container
I want to add a div with 100% height (to the bottom of the screen). My css-fu is rusty, and I can't work this out.

Simple HTML:

<body>
<div class="navbar navbar-fixed-top">
<!-- Rest of nav bar chopped from here -->
</div>
<div class="container fill">
<div id="map"></div> <!-- This one wants to be 100% height -->
</div>
</body>


Current CSS:

#map {
width: 100%;
height: 100%;
min-height: 100%;
}

html, body {
height: 100%;
}

.fill {
min-height: 100%;
}



  • EDIT *



I've added height to the fill class as suggested below. But, the problem is that I add a padding-top to the body to account for the fixed navbar at the top. This affects the 100% height of the "map" div and means that a scrollbar gets added - as seen here: http://jsfiddle.net/S3Gvf/2/ Can anyone tell me how to fix?

Answer

Set the class .fill to height: 100%

.fill { 
    min-height: 100%;
    height: 100%;
}

JSFiddle

(I put a red background for #map so you can see it takes up 100% height)
