CSS position Property

Definition

The position property places an element in a static, relative, absolute or fixed position.
Inherited: No

JavaScript Syntax

CSS properties can also be dynamically changed with a JavaScript.
Scripting Syntax: object.style.position="absolute"

Example

h1
{
position:absolute;
left:100px;
top:150px;
}

Possible Values

Value Description
static Default. An element with position: static always has the position the normal flow of the page gives it (a static element ignores any top, bottom, left, or right declarations)
relative An element with position: relative moves an element relative to its normal position, so "left:20" adds 20 pixels to the element's LEFT position
absolute An element with position: absolute is positioned at the specified coordinates relative to its containing block. The element's position is specified with the "left", "top", "right", and "bottom" properties
fixed An element with position: fixed is positioned at the specified coordinates relative to the browser window. The element's position is specified with the "left", "top", "right", and "bottom" properties. The element remains at that position regardless of scrolling. Works in IE7 (strict mode)
