Sys.UI.DomEvent clientX Field

Gets the x-coordinate of the mouse pointer's position relative to the client area of the browser window, excluding window scroll bars.

Syntax

var clientX = domEventVar.clientX;

Return Value

An integer that represents the x-coordinate in pixels.

Remarks

Use the clientX field to gets the horizontal offset of the mouse pointer's position relative to the client area of the browser window. The client area excludes window scroll bars.

Example

The following example shows how to use the clientX field to retrieve the x-coordinate of the mouse pointer's position relative to the client area of the browser window.
