asked on

how to retrieve value of "top" on an element

I'm moving the element displayscreens around and need to know if it exceeds a certain amount (see code attached). So I'm trying to read the value of "top" like this:

if ($('#displayscreens').attr('top')==2484)

But it isn't working. So I added an alert:

lert($('#displayscreens').attr('top'));

That keeps telling me "undefined". How can I figure the "top" value so I know how far the user has moved #displayscreens? Thank you!
$('#gr_mwc_arrowleft').click(function(){
	alert($('#displayscreens').attr('top'));
	if ($('#displayscreens').attr('top')==2484) {
	} else {
		$('#displayscreens').animate({top: '+=414px'}, 1000);
	}
});
