Remarks

Only use the IHTMLCSSStyleDeclaration::right attribute when the IHTMLCSSStyleDeclaration::position attribute is set; otherwise, the value of the IHTMLCSSStyleDeclaration::right attribute is ignored.

You cannot use the IHTMLCSSStyleDeclaration::right property in script to calculate the position of the object in the document, because the value of the IHTMLCSSStyleDeclaration::right property is a string. Instead, use the IHTMLRuleStyle2::pixelRight property or the IHTMLRuleStyle2::posRight property.

You cannot use the IHTMLCSSStyleDeclaration::right property to calculate the position of the object in the document, because the value of the IHTMLCSSStyleDeclaration::right property is a string.

For more information about how to access the dimension and location of objects on the page through the DHTML Object Model, see Measuring Element Dimension and Location with CSSOM in Internet Explorer 9.

Examples
