Hello experts
I 'm trying to use the position of one div so that i can add a new div in an absolute position using the left and top values of the first one
My code:
var position = $('#' + nextdiv).position();
left1 = position.left;alert(left1);
left2 = 186;
left = left1 + left2 ;alert(left);
top1 = position.top;alert(top1);
top2 = 10;
top = top1 + top2; alert(top);

left1 alert is 0 , that is ok
left alert is 186 , that is ok too
top1 alert is 50
but top alert is [object window]  instead of 60
Any help?

You can't use 'top' as a variable name. Change it to something else:

topTotal = top1 + top2;
alert(topTotal);

Open in new window
