Set Element’s Min-Height to Height of Another Element

For this example, we’re looking to give #contentinner a min-height that equals the height of #sidebar.

var $contentinner = $('#contentinner');
var sidebarheight = $("#sidebar").height();
        'min-height' : sidebarheight + 'px'

He's never far from a computer... or an iPad (for testing purposes, of course). If you've been to a WordCamp in Southern California, he probably already knows who you are (or maybe not - he's terrible with names). Dave currently teaches courses at California State University, Long Beach alongside his small business at (and his students think he's pretty boss).
