I need to know the position of a div inside iframe
I used the following java script code


Iframe width =400px
table inside the iframe width =1200px
when I try to get the position of the (overlayPanel.offsetLeft)) the alert shows (323)
but this is not what I need, I need the position without the scrolling part, I mean the position I am seeing relative to the Iframe width which should be (65)

(323) is the absolute position including the hidden part of scroll

any idea ?
