Window.convertPointFromNodeToPage()

Non-standard
This feature is non-standard and is not on a standards track. Do not use it on production sites facing the Web: it will not work for every user. There may also be large incompatibilities between implementations and the behavior may change in the future.

Given a Point specified in a particular DOM Node's coordinate system, the Window method convertPointFromNodeToPage() returns a Point which specifies the same position in the page's coordinate system. This method is non-standard and should not be used.

Please review the Browser compatibility section before using this method, as it's not widely supported (nor is the Point object it uses).

Syntax

Point = Window.convertPointFromNodeToPage(node, nodePoint);

Parameters

node
The Node in whose coordinate system the Point specified by nodePoint is described.
nodePoint
A Point object describing a point in node's coordinate system; this point will be converted to the page's coordinate system.

Return value

A Point object specifying a point in the page's coordinate system.

Specifications

This method was specified in the defunct 20 March 2009 Working Draft of CSS 2D Transforms Module Level 3. It is not present in the current CSS Transforms Module Level 1 Working Draft.
