var y = event.pageY;     // Get the vertical coordinate
var coor = "X coords: " + x + ", Y coords: " + y;

Definition and Usage

The pageY property returns the vertical coordinate (according to the document) of the mouse pointer when a mouse event was triggered.

The document is the web page.

Tip: To get the horizontal coordinate (according to the document) of the mouse pointer, use the pageX property.

Note: This property is read-only.

Note: This property is non-standard, but works in most major browsers.

More Examples

var y = event.pageY; 
var coor = "X coords: " + x + ", Y coords: " + y;
document.getElementById("demo").innerHTML = coor;

A demonstration of the differences between clientX and clientY and screenX and screenY:

var pX = event.pageX;
var cX = event.clientX;
var pY = event.pageY;
var cY = event.clientY;
var coords1 = "page - X: " + pX + ", Y coords: " + pY;
var coords2 = "client - X: " + cX + ", Y coords: " + cY;
