getPosition function in iutils.js (interface) fails for in-line elements in Opera

Description (last modified by joern)

Trying to use the ScrollTo function, I found that it wouldn't work in Opera. After some debugging, I realized that if the anchor (element I wanted to scroll to) was an inline element, it would fail. Block elements work fine. I posted this in the discussion forum:


and Brandon Aaron responded that he just fixed the same problem in dimensions.js:


The code that Brandon included in dimensions.js is near the bottom of the page:

	// Opera thinks offset is scroll offset for display: inline elements
	if (options.scroll && jQuery.browser.opera && jQuery.css(elem, 'display') == 'inline') {
		sl -= elem.scrollLeft || 0;
		st -= elem.scrollTop  || 0;

This duplication of code (same functionality in iutils.js and dimensions.js) should be eliminated, if possible, in order to keep jQuery as simple as possible.

i used following code (note added if) [code]

if(!jQuery.browser.opera && jQuery(e).css('display') != 'absolute')

while (el && el.tagName.toLowerCase() != 'body') {

x -= el.scrollLefty -= el.scrollTop

el = el.parentNode;
