Finding the Position of an Element      Number of views: 1766

Yesterday, I was searching for a piece of javascript that can find an element's position in a page, and I have found this (sorry, I don't have the link to the source, but, I'll add it later)


var xPos=0;
var yPos = 0;

function findPos(obj){

xPos = obj.offsetLeft;

yPos = obj.offsetTop;


while  (obj.offsetParent){


  yPos =yPos+obj.offsetParent.offsetTop;


  if (obj==document.getElementsByTagName( 'body' )[0])
    { break}



you can call it just by passing the element by itself, you can use "document.getElementById('the object id');" to get the reference of your object,
