get absolute XY position from grid


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[0]);…”>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);
