HTMLElement.offsetWidth

The HTMLElement.offsetWidth read-only property returns the layout width of an element as an integer.

Typically, offsetWidth is a measurement in pixels of the element's CSS width, including any borders, padding, and vertical scrollbars (if rendered). It does not include the width of pseudo-elements such as ::before or ::after.

If the element is hidden (for example, by setting style.display on the element or one of its ancestors to "none"), then 0 is returned.

Syntax

var intElemOffsetWidth = element.offsetWidth;

intElemOffsetWidth is a variable storing an integer corresponding to the offsetWidth pixel value of the element. The offsetWidth property is a read-only.

This property will round the value to an integer. If you need a fractional value, use element.getBoundingClientRect().
