# How Can One Find The Absolute X-value (from Body 0) Of The Lower Edge Of A Given Element

Jan 6, 2006

Imagine a mess of div-elements nested inside each other
some relative, some absolute.

Some of them grows when their children grows...

And at some point, I want the x-coordinate of the bottom
edge of the element that is lowest down on the page.

Of course I need to support the most popular UAs on each
major platform (Not NS4.x)

(In my particular case, I'm only interested in div elements)...

Any hints on this?

## Search And Replace Body Text With Lower-case Text

Apr 19, 2010

The javascript below is looking for the word 'margaret thatcher' in the body and surrounding it with a link. It's lower-case but the script is ignoring the case so that won't matter. But, the problem is that because Margaret Thatcher is a proper noun, it will be capitalized in the body text yet replaced with lower-case text. How can I modify this script to look for the word while ignoring the case but use the same text it found as the replacement instead of using the text object?

## Jquery :: Get Width From The Center Of An Element To The Edge Of Viewport?

Apr 9, 2010

Essentially the idea is to make Element-B and Element-C to cover the area horizontally starting from center of Element-A and ending at the edge of viewport.So, I guess i want to get the distance value from the center of Element-A to the edge of viewport

Element-A doesnt have static position or size.
Element-B and Element-C verticalposition or height is
irrelevant.

I was thinking something like this:Calculate width of Element-A and divide it by two ( Or just get half the width if theres a way. )
Get the distance from the edge of Element-A to the edge of Viewport Add up these calculated values.Of course unless theres way to get that this width straight up )I was trying to look for a way to do list item 2.

## Function That Can Cause An Element To Slide Down As In Fly From An Edge Of A Screen To The Location That It Is Supposed To Be At??

Feb 8, 2011

Is there a jQuery function that can cause an element to slide down as in fly from an edge of a screen to the location that it is supposed to be at? The slideDown();function causes an element to start at the top of the container the element it is applied to and then roll down. I guess what I am looking for is something that would on an event slide from an edge of a screen or browser window to where it is supposed to go? Are there any functions or transitions like that?

## JQuery :: How To Know The Exact Absolute Position Of An Element In The Browser

Jan 22, 2011

i would like to know the absolute position of an element (e.g. <LI>) in the browser. i nned to know it in order to place juste beside another element (e.g. submenu).

for example: i have a <li> tag which is at 400px from my browser left border (because it is inside a div which is screen centered). this <li> has a width of 180 px so if i want to know the most left position for my submenu, i should get 400 + 180 = 580 px (from the browser left border).

i tried offset but without success. in fact it returns me 0.

## Cannot Find Body Node Of The DOM To Assign Event-handlers

Jun 9, 2011

What I am coding now is a piece of a much larger project that I am, for the moment, developing on my own. This code, relatively useless on its own, is essentially practice or proof -of-concept. Much of it will probably be used in the larger project. If at times, it seems that I am using a cannon to kill a fly, this is why.

Additionally, I do not claim credit for all the code here. Some of it is copied from other sources. I have studied it, understood it , then modified it appropriately, making it my own.

However, the code is broken. I have tested it on Internet Explorer 9.0.??? and Firefox 4.0.1. It breaks in both browsers. I have previously tested it in Chrome, but not recently. On IE I have used the built in debugger, and I have been using Firebug in Firefox. I have also used the debugger at [URL] quite frequently. JSLINT returns some 'Bad Type' errors regarding 12 lines in the html body, each having the structure: <td><input /></td>. I can find no explanation for the 'Bad Type' errors. Otherwise, according to JSLINT, the code is fine.

The predecessor to this code worked fine. I had been using inline event handlers (onblur and oninput) that called the doMath function when one enters data into the table. The values are then averaged and summed. All this is extremely basic. The problem began when I removed the inline event handlers and began to use window.onload (I believe I am using document.onload now, but the problem has not changed.)

I have adopted Douglas Crockford's 'walkTheDom' recursive function to find all tags with a particular class name. I would like to assign every element in the array returned by this function an event handler.

This is the problem: This script simply cannot find the body node of the DOM ( and, seemingly, none of its child nodes either). Initially I tried 'document.body', which failed. I then began with 'this' (essentially 'document') and tried walking the DOM to get to it ('body') eventually. This, too, failed. I tried array index notation to refer to it(I forget the specific syntax), and most recently, I've given it ('body') an id and referred to it directly using 'document.getElementById()'. These most recent attempts also failed.

After hours of figuratively bashing my head against the wall looking at code and probably even more time doing research online, I am extremely frustrated. As often seems to be the case, my problem is probably simple

I have included most of the code, even though it is a little long. This way you may easily copy the code and reproduce the problem yourself. I do not often post to forums, and, more relevant, I have no idea where the error may be located.

Potential problem areas are in RED.

## JQuery :: Removal Of Element Before Body?

Sep 14, 2009

How can I remove an element before the body of the document, the long and the short of it is that a script I use places a statement (amongst other things) dynamically into my web pages and based upon which browser I use, sometimes it places it inside the <head> and sometimes places it before the <head> and in some browsers not at all. I know it shouldn't, but it does. So basically, is there a way of removing the br statement if it exists before the body element?

## Exlude An Element From Body Onclick Event?

Apr 16, 2010

I have a table full of images and a button which when turned on uses the arrow keys to navigate around the table. When the button is turned on clicks to the empty body area of the page will redirect the focus to the button which keeps the arrow keys activated, but i want to prevent this from happening when the user clicks inside the table itself. I suppose what im looking for is something like:

Code:
var elementClicked = (whatever the syntax is for the element name that was clicked)
if(elementClicked != myTable1){

## JQuery :: Find Element With Same Class Name?

Oct 7, 2010

This is probably a dumb question (noob) but I cannot seem to find the answer, either here or on StackOverflow or even Googling...

But I need the class name to be a variable so this function is reusable.

What am I doing wrong?

## JQuery :: 1.4.2 Equivalent Of Find (Element)

Aug 14, 2011

<script src="jquery.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
\$('body').append('<iframe>');
} appendIframe = function() {
\$('iframe').contents().find('body').append('appended');}
</script>
<button onClick="javascript:appendIframe();">appendIframe</button>

Now this work perfectly fine with jQ 1.6.2, but does not work with 1.4.2 because 1.4.2 does not yet know .find(element).
