I have a HTML file that has a lot of content. In it I have a <div id="d1">somecontent</div> block. Would it be possible for me to know the position of this d1 (absolute or relative) displayed on the page / window if not setting it first ?
i,m trying to make a map who show me as position A and a target adress as point B.I have made it so i can choose adress a and adress b from a dropdown but i want to automaticly load my position as possition A then choose position B from a dropdownlist. How can i do this ?
#navigation li is the parent element, which is positioned relative.The ul element above that is also position relative. I previously tested a click function and was able to confirm I was getting the correct position back, so now I just need to set the CSS property correctly for all of those links.The reason I want to do this is I have a set of links that appear over a photo of a city skyline. When you hover over those items, I want them to be given a background image that is a blurred and lightened version of the same photo so it needs to line up (sort of like the tabs are made of frosted glass).
The td is name 'online' and the friends box is named 'menufriends'. (with id's, of course.) My problem is that I need the friends box to display next to the td. So what when you click the td, it shows up to the right of it instead of below the menu. I have tried all sorts of different methods and cant even get it to change its position.
Before you immediately give me an answer, let me describe fully what I'm trying to do, as it's not as simple as the title suggests.
I need to get the absolute position of a DIV (top and left properties) relative to the viewport/screen.
I've tried using .offsetTop and .offsetLeft, but these return the top and left properties relative to the DIV's immediate parent element, not the viewport (unless of course the DIV is top-level and not contained in any other DIVs).
So, is there any way to retrieve the absolute position of a DIV relative to the viewport, even if that DIV is nested in other DIVs?
What i want to do is calculate the vertical-middle right-sided position of text fields in x, y meaning in top and left margins. How can I do that?
This is something I've been trying to do for a while now and I feel silly for not getting it working. I'm sure it should be possible.
I want to find the position on the users screen of a popup window. I know I can position one where I want, but say the user then moves it, can I then get X-Y coordinates so I can know where the user has moved it? I can get the width and height without issue...
The snippet below is related to some code that I'm developing that will eventually cause a scrolling DIV (overflow-y:scroll) to scroll to bring a specified element into view. I actually developed the code about a year ago. The code worked under IE6, but does not appear to work under IE7. Is offsetTop still a valid means of getting the position of an element?
If I open a new browser window with the function window.open() on internet explorer for Mac, the new window is moved a few pixel orizontally and vertically with reference to the previous window. I tried to force the position of the genereted window with screenX=0,screenY=0 but it doesn't seem to help. Is there a solution?
