event.pageY Property

An event is an action occurred by the user. Therefore, many functions and methods can be set according to those actions performed. When these actions are defined for an event interface, we term those as the event properties. There are various predefined event properties in jQuery. Here, let's discuss the event.pageY Property.

The event.pageY is a built-in property in jQuery. This property helps to get the current position of the mouse pointer relative to the top edge of the document. It can be the web page (document) or some selected area within the document also. We can use any of the needed mouse pointer methods in jQuery and further find out its position in the document using event.pageY property. Since, this clearly states 'pageY', hence, it will return the pointer value along the Y-axis of the document.

event.pageY Property Syntax


Since this is a property, it does not accept any parameters. Generally, event.pageY is used with event.pageX to get an appropriate result. The below example helps us to know the position of the mouse pointer inside the div box specifically.
