Detect screen resolution in javascript and dynamically change a .css file

Hi E's, I have a page that contain a 'Drop-in content box', and that box appear every time the page is load, you can see in attach image.
I want put this box in the middle of the page, I try change the css in this line, but don't work:
CODE:<div id="dropin" style="position:absolute;visibility:hidden;left:200px;top:100px;width:500px;height:300px;
(I try change left and top to auto but the box open in position zero).

So, the only solution I see for this issue is take the measure of screen and give values to left and top dinamically.
Example, the box size is 200*200, screen resolution is 800*600, so, for open in the center: left 300px and top 200px.

How I do this in javascript?

Regards, JC

This sample page contains the javascript that show how to center a div in the screen or in the visible area of the browser (without toolbars).

You can easily adapt it to your needs.

Remember that it works if the div dimensions are set by the stylesheet.
   
<html>
  <head>
  <title></title>
<script>
window.onload = function() {
   document.getElementById("btn1").onclick = function(e) {
      var elem = document.getElementById("dropin");
      var coords = getCoords(elem);
      elem.style.top = coords.y + "px";
      elem.style.left = coords.x + "px";
   
   }
   
   document.getElementById("btn2").onclick = function(e) {
      var elem = document.getElementById("dropin");
      var coords = getCoords2(elem);
      elem.style.top = coords.y + "px";
      elem.style.left = coords.x + "px";
   
   }
   
   function getCoords(elem) {
      return { x:(screen.width - parseInt(elem.style.width)) / 2,
               y:(screen.height - parseInt(elem.style.height)) / 2 
             }
   }
   
   function getCoords2(elem) {
      return { x:(document.body.clientWidth - parseInt(elem.style.width)) / 2,
               y:(document.body.clientHeight - parseInt(elem.style.height)) / 2 
             }
   }
}
   
</script>
  </head>
  <body>
<div id="dropin" style="position:absolute;left:200px;top:100px;width:500px;height:300px; border:1px solid black"></div>
<input id="btn1" type="button" value="Center screen"> <br>
<input id="btn2" type="button" value="Center browser"> <br>
 
  </body>
</html>

Hi @bugada, I need more help, my knolgement in javascript is very poor.
I try reconstruct all the script but the result is not good, so, I need a help, realy!
If nobody helps with @bugada script (I really believe is a good script, I test in my server and work), I like to show what is my idea:
1 - Javascript detect screen resolution, and made a script for when I call the code of the box, box appear in the center. I don't know do that script, and worst, I don't know how I connect the variables to the box.

Help me with your code, or somebody give me a new idea for put the box in the center of the screen.

Regards, JC

Added the getCoords() function in your script, after the function truebody()
Added line 24 to set new x position.
Added getCoords("dropin").x at line 31 in order to get proper x limit.

That's all. Try it.
