Say I've got a frameset like
--------| | || | |--------
Now if I have a document.onmousedown = someFunction
and then have function someFunction(e)
, then the event 'e' will have e.clientX
which hold the current mouse position relative to that frame. If I'm in the right frame though, then I'd need to add the width of the left frame to get the position relative to the browser window.
Is there some way to get the mouse position outside the frames, or without an 'e'? It's been driving me bonkers.
