    screenY

    « DOM Reference

    Summary

    Returns the vertical coordinate of the event within the screen as a whole.

    Syntax

    var pixelNumber = event.screenY; 
    
    • pixelNumber is the offset from the top of the screen in pixels.

    Example

    <html>
    <head>
    <title>screenX\screenY example</title>
    
    <script type="text/javascript">
    
    function showCoords(evt){
      alert(
        "screenX value: " + evt.screenX + "\n"
        + "screenY value: " + evt.screenY + "\n"
      );
    }
    
    </script>
    </head>
    
    <body onmousedown="showCoords(event)">
    <p>To display the mouse coordinates click anywhere on the page.</p>
    </body>
    </html>
    

    Notes

    When you trap events on the window, document, or other roomy elements, you can get the coordinates of that event (e.g., a click) and route it properly, as the "clickMap" example demonstrates.
