Determining the position of the browser in relationship to the screen

P: n/a

All,
Is their a way of finding the position of the browsers top-left-hand-corner
as it relates to the monitors screen resolution?? By that I mean that if the
browser's window is at the upper most left hand corner of the screen, the X
aces would equal 0 and the Y aces would equal 0.

The references I've been able to find refer only to the browser itself and
not the browsers position as it relates to the screen.

Any help will be appreciated

Not in a cross-browser, cross-platform way, no. Is this for an intranet
or Windows application?

And the word is axis, not aces. An ace is a playing card. :)

There are browser incompatibilities; also even different implementations
of the same properties from browser to browser.

In real webpage situation, you should not need to use these properties
anyway. I'm sure there would be a workaround for what you are trying to
achieve.

Thanks,

DU your solution worked, unfortunate the reference I found, before my post
and spent a couple of hours trying to implement, was the wrong syntax.

Unfortunately I'm just anal about the way thank look and happen on my site.

Thanks Again.
