JavaScript move image


This section illustrates you how to move an image on the window using JavaScript.

In the following code, we have defined an image 'node.jpg' in order to move it on the browser. For this, we have used onClick event handler to specify what should happen when the mouse is clicked on the window. The properties clientX and clientY of event object indicates the cursor's horizontal and vertical position when the event occurs relative to the upper-left corner of the window and the pageX and pageY provide coordinates in the document's space. To set the element top position relative to the next element top edge we have used the property style.left and the syle.left sets the position of the left edge of an element relative to the left edge of the next element. This code works correctly on Internet Explorer.

Here is the code:

<h2>Move Image</h2>
<script type="text/javascript">
var X, Y;
function moveImage(){
X = (document.layers) ? e.pageX : event.clientX
Y = (document.layers) ? e.pageY : event.clientY
<img id="image" src="node.jpg"></img>

Output will be displayed as:

If you click anywhere on the window the image will moved to that position.
