clientHeight

DHTML property that represents the inner height of an element. This includes possible padding but not scrollbar (if present, if rendered), not border nor margin. If the element has an horizontal scrollbar, then its height value is substracted from the css height property value and from the vertical css padding value of the element in the computation of the clientHeight value.

Syntax and Values

var intElemClientHeight = document.getElementById(id_attribute_value).clientHeight;

intElemClientHeight is a variable storing an integer corresponding to the clientHeight pixel value of the element. clientHeight is a read-only property.

Notes

An element's clientHeight is a measurement which includes the element CSS height and the element vertical padding and, if rendered, substracting the height of horizontal scrollbar.
