Hi,

I am wondering if I could calculate the distance between an object and the top edge of the browser using javascript?

This method ( getposOffset(obj, "top") ) return the absolute height of the object on the page, but I want to know the height of the object to the top edge, not top of the page. As I scroll down, the height/distance between the object and the edge keep changes, that is what I need to know.

Thanks.

At the bottom of this page is a sample script on how to get window.pageYOffset, document. body.scrollTop or document.documentElement.scrollTop.
Not tested, just googled it.
