I'm trying to get a new browser window to appear in front of the current page the user is looking at.  I know how to create the new window and how to detect the width and height of the current browser window.  But I need to be able to check the browsers position on the computer screens.

The way I have it configured now, it appears a certain distance from the top-left of the screen.  This however could pose a problem with different sized computer screens and especially when a user has dual monitors.

Is there any way to detect the browsers postion so that I can position my new window relative to the old?

Hi,

You can use Screen.height and Screen.Width to find the screen height and window.

Follow the below link to make you window center on the screen, irrespective of different screen sizes.

This doesn't seem to be what I'm looking for.  Is there javascript that can tell me the distance from the top or from the left the current window is?
