pui.getDimensions( container )

This function returns the dimensions of a Rich Display File screen based on the elements occupying that screen.  The function returns an object with the following properties:

  • x1 - the x-coordinate of the left-most element on the screen

  • y1 - the y-coordinate of the top-most element on the screen

  • x2 - the x-coordinate of the right-most part of the screen

  • y2 - the y-coordinate of the bottom-most part of the screen


  • container - a reference to the DOM object, which serves as the container for the elements on the screen; a special value pui.runtimeContainer can be used here to utilize the default container for a Rich Display File application


var dimensions = pui.getDimensions(pui.runtimeContainer); var x1 = dimensions.x1; var y1 = dimensions.y1; var x2 = dimensions.x2; var y2 = dimensions.y2; var width = x2 - x1; var height = y2 - y1;
