Element.offsetHeight (Property)

The height of this element.


JScript - 3.0
Internet Explorer - 4.0
Property/method value type:Number primitive
JavaScript syntax:IEmyElement.offsetHeight

The height of the element in pixels. This value is read-only but for some objects such as images the height property should be used instead if you need to modify the physical size of the item. The changes will be reflected in this property but you cannot make the changes by altering the value of this property from your script.

The value in this property is not supposed to include any padding, border or margin widths.

Although the name of this property implies its value is related to a parent object, in fact it is a measure of the element's height and the parentage has no bearing on that whatsoever.
