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 not the vertical scrollbar (if present, if rendered), border or margin.

Syntax

var intElemClientWidth = element.clientWidth;

intElemClientWidth is an integer corresponding to the clientWidth of element in pixels. clientWidth is read–only.

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