This is an experimental technology
Check the Browser compatibility table carefully before using this in production.

The Range.getClientRects() method returns a list of DOMRect objects representing the area of the screen occupied by the range. This is created by aggregating the results of calls to Element.getClientRects() for all the elements in the range.

Syntax

rectList = range.getClientRects()

Example

range = document.createRange();
range.selectNode(document.getElementsByTagName("div").item(0));
rectList = range.getClientRects();
