How Do I Get the Absolute Position of a DIV?
Before you immediately give me an answer, let me describe fully what I'm trying to do, as it's not as simple as the title suggests.
I need to get the absolute position of a DIV (top and left properties) relative to the viewport/screen.
I've tried using .offsetTop and .offsetLeft, but these return the top and left properties relative to the DIV's immediate parent element, not the viewport (unless of course the DIV is top-level and not contained in any other DIVs).
So, is there any way to retrieve the absolute position of a DIV relative to the viewport, even if that DIV is nested in other DIVs?
Thanks for any help!
