More "Try it Yourself" examples below.


Definition and Usage

The screenX and screenY properties returns the x (horizontal) and y (vertical) coordinates of the window relative to the screen.


Browser Support

The numbers in the table specify the first browser version that fully supports the property.

Property

Technical Details

Return Value: A Number, representing the horizontal and/or vertical distance of the window relative to the screen, in pixels

More Examples

Example

Open a new window with a specified left and top position, and return its coordinates:

var myWindow = window.open("", "myWin", "left=700, top=350, width=200, height=100");
myWindow.document.write("<p>This is 'myWin'");
myWindow.document.write("<br>ScreenX: " + myWindow.screenX);
myWindow.document.write("<br>ScreenY: " + myWindow.screenY + "</p>");

Example

Cross browser solution (using screenLeft and screenTop for IE8 and earlier):

// Open a new window with a specified left and top position
var myWindow = window.open("", "myWin", "left=700, top=350, width=200, height=100");

/*
If the browser does not support screenX and screen Y,
use screenLeft and screenTop instead (and vice versa)
*/
var winLeft = myWindow.screenLeft ? myWindow.screenLeft : myWindow.screenX;
var winTop = myWindow.screenTop ? myWindow.screenTop : myWindow.screenY;

// Write the new window's x and y coordinates relative to the screen
myWindow.document.write("<p>This is 'myWin'");
myWindow.document.write("<br>Horizontal: " + winLeft);
myWindow.document.write("<br>Vertical: " + winTop + "</p>");
