I would like to know if there's any way to know the absolute position of the browser's visible canvas. Ex: if I'm at a webpage and I scroll down 200px, I would like to know I'm on the coordinate {X,200}.

Is there a way to do this using Selenium Webdriver?


PS - I know that the Element has the property Position, which returns his absolute position on the page. I'm not sure if this may help, though.

This has been asked a few times on StackOverflow and every answer I found points to using JavaScriptExecuter.

  • Thanks Kirbycope, but what I'd like to know is in which position I am when I go to the bottom of the page, and not to scroll there. But this will be useful anyways, thanks!

  • The same principle applies. You can use the JavaScriptExecuter to get the values you need. Here is an example, stackoverflow.com/a/3464890/1106708
