scrollWidth/scrollHeight function

Reported by: Owned by:
Priority: undecided Milestone: 1.5

I would like a function to return the actual width of an element event if it is overflow:hidden;

Actual width: the width the element would have if it had width:auto and it was under the body element.

e.g. I have a table of divs that hold text. If text is too much for the current div to show (actual width) maybe activate a tooltip function.

Something like that

Also a serializeArray for all elements not only on forms. I have done something similar but would like it native.

Please post different feature requests as different tickets. And provide a better description on how you would expect serializeArray to work on arbitrary elements

I’m not sure of the usefulness of this versus $.fn.attr("scrollTop").

These kinds of suggestions are great to implement as simple plugins where you can test their utility; once they are written and debugged we can consider them for inclusion.
