At this (http://htmldoodads.appspot.com/dimensions.html) link the the scrollbar width is calculated when you zoom it in or out.
But it is working only for chrome not  working for IE 9
I did not check the other browsers. Can anybody make this functions cross browser using pure JS?
Thank you..

The function is:


var outerDiv = document.createElement('div');
outerDiv.style.width = outerDiv.style.height = '500px';  // enough for all the scrollbars
var div = outerDiv;
for (var i = 0; i < 10; ++i) {
  var child = document.createElement('div');
  child.style.overflowY = 'scroll';
  div.appendChild(child);
  div = child;
}
document.body.appendChild(outerDiv);
var outerDivWidth = outerDiv.clientWidth;
var innerDivWidth = div.clientWidth;
var scrollbarWidthCss = (outerDivWidth - innerDivWidth)/10;
document.body.removeChild(outerDiv);
return scrollbarWidthCss;
