PageX and pageY for IE


Default_flex    0

I want to know what are the pageX and pageY equivalents for IE. pageX and pageY work on firefox, they are great because they get the actual position of the mouse relative to the page and not the window like clientX and clientY. any suggestions?

thanks guys

QuirksMode has this script fragment

if (e.pageX || e.pageY) {
	posx = e.pageX;
	posy = e.pageY;
else if (e.clientX || e.clientY) {
	posx = e.clientX + document.body.scrollLeft
		+ document.documentElement.scrollLeft;
	posy = e.clientY + document.body.scrollTop
		+ document.documentElement.scrollTop;

e is the event, posx and posy now contain the pageX and pageY values, if IE supported them.
