Fixed 100% height based on user viewport

Hi,

Is there a way to make a 100% height based on the current viewport?

The use case will be the chat page.

We want to show the chat to have a fixed height. The input text is always at the bottom and we can just scroll at the message container and the contacts container on the left.

I did some research and can achieve this using boostraps vh-100 but using it makes the height either too small.

Hi,

Noted, we will fix this in the next update.

In the meantime can you scroll element's attributes as shown below for the contact's list:

data-kt-scroll="true" 
data-kt-scroll-activate="{default: false, lg: true}" data-kt-scroll-max-height="auto"
data-kt-scroll-dependencies="#kt_header, #kt_app_header, #kt_toolbar, #kt_app_toolbar, #kt_footer, #kt_app_footer, #kt_chat_contacts_header"
data-kt-scroll-wrappers="#kt_content, #kt_app_content, #kt_chat_contacts_body"
data-kt-scroll-offset="5px"

And for messages scroll list:

data-kt-element="messages" 
data-kt-scroll="true"
data-kt-scroll-activate="{default: false, lg: true}"
data-kt-scroll-max-height="auto"
data-kt-scroll-dependencies="#kt_header, #kt_app_header, #kt_app_toolbar, #kt_toolbar, #kt_footer, #kt_app_footer, #kt_chat_messenger_header, #kt_chat_messenger_footer"
data-kt-scroll-wrappers="#kt_content, #kt_app_content, #kt_chat_messenger_body" data-kt-scroll-offset="5px"
