I placed a link inside a cell in grid and i would like to get the absolute position of the link for placing there a div with data.
how do i get/catch the position of the event ?
You can get link object from the onclick event handler of the link.
<a href="…" onclick=“var ev =(event||arguments);…”>your link
Using ev you can get source html element and then get its position .
Grid has two internal functions which possibly could help you:
left = getAbsoluteLeft(obj);
top = getAbsoluteTop(obj);
