DOMRect

Draft

This page is not complete.

A DOMRect describes the size and position of a rectangle.

The type of box represented by the DOMRect is specified by the method or property that returned it. For example, VREyeParameters.renderRect from the WebVR API specifies the viewport of a canvas into which visuals for one eye of a head mounted display should be rendered.

It inherits from its parent, DOMRectReadOnly.

Constructor

DOMRect()
Creates a new DOMRect object.

Properties

DOMRect inherits properties from its parent, DOMRectReadOnly. The difference is that they are not read-only anymore.

DOMRectReadOnly.x
The x coordinate of the DOMRect's origin (typically the top-left corner of the rectangle).
DOMRectReadOnly.y
The y coordinate of the DOMRect's origin (typically the top-left corner of the rectangle).
DOMRectReadOnly.width
The width of the DOMRect.
DOMRectReadOnly.height
The height of the DOMRect.
DOMRectReadOnly.top
Returns the top coordinate value of the DOMRect (has the same value as y, or y + height if height is negative.)
DOMRectReadOnly.right
Returns the right coordinate value of the DOMRect (has the same value as x + width, or x if width is negative.)
DOMRectReadOnly.bottom
Returns the bottom coordinate value of the DOMRect (has the same value as y + height, or y if height is negative.)
DOMRectReadOnly.left
Returns the left coordinate value of the DOMRect (has the same value as x, or x + width if width is negative.)

Methods
