Hi. Is there any way of getting an element real size from javascript, when
this element was previously assigned a width and height of 100%?
Thanks,
Alex.

In IE you can use the getBoundingRect() method. Look ut up on MSDN for
documentation and examples. In most cases, you can use offsetHeight and
offsetWidth of the element, like

var e = document.getElementById("myDiv");
alert(e.offsetHeight);
alert(e.offsetWidth);

yes you can do this with the help of jQuery.


$(document).ready(function(){
$("div.width").append($("div.width").width()+" px");
$("div.innerWidth").append($("div.innerWidth").innerWidth()+" px");
$("div.outerWidth").append($("div.outerWidth").outerWidth()+" px");
});
