The Element.clientWidth property is zero for elements with no CSS or inline layout boxes; otherwise it's the inner width of an element in pixels. It includes padding but excludes borders, margins, and vertical scrollbars (if present).

Note: This property will round the value to an integer. If you need a fractional value, use element.getBoundingClientRect().
