This is an experimental technology
Because this technology's specification has not stabilized, check the compatibility table for usage in various browsers. Also note that the syntax and behavior of an experimental technology is subject to change in future versions of browsers as the specification changes.

The Range.getClientRects() method returns a list of ClientRect 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();
