class method Event.pointerX

View source on GitHub →

Event.pointerX(event) → Number

Returns the absolute horizontal position of the pointer for a mouse event.

Note that this position is absolute on the <body>, not on the viewport: scrolling right increases the returned value for events on the same viewport location.

This method can be called either as an instance method or as a generic method. If calling as a generic, pass the instance in as the first argument.
