In Requests-HTML, you can set the height and width dimensions for sending a request by utilizing the render method. The render method allows you to execute JavaScript within the context of the page, enabling you to modify its appearance before parsing and retrieving the content.

Here's an example of how to set the height and width dimensions when sending a request with Requests-HTML:

from requests_html import HTMLSession # Create an HTML session session = HTMLSession() # Define the URL you want to request url = '' # Define the desired height and width dimensions desired_height = 800 desired_width = 1200 # Send a request and render the page with the specified dimensions response = session.get(url, render=True, scrolldown=1, sleep=2, keep_page=True, browser_args=['--window-size={},{}'.format(desired_width, desired_height)]) # Access the rendered content content = response.html.html # Now you can parse and manipulate the content as needed

In the code above, we use the render method with render=True to enable rendering of the page, and we set the desired_height and desired_width variables to the desired dimensions. We pass the --window-size argument to the browser instance via browser_args to set the height and width dimensions.

Please note that using render=True and rendering the page with specific dimensions may require additional dependencies like pyppeteer or pyppdf. Make sure you have installed these dependencies and the appropriate browser binaries to enable rendering.

Keep in mind that using rendering with Requests-HTML might add extra overhead and dependencies to your project, so use it judiciously based on your specific use case and performance requirements. If you don't need JavaScript rendering and just want to fetch and parse the HTML content, the basic get method without render=True should suffice.
