AlignIt - DOM Alignment Helpers
Align your dom elements to other elements with relative ease. Uses absolute positioning.
Usage is dead simple:
alignit(document.getElementById('test'), 'top right');
You can even get a little tricky with offsetting away from alignment points:
// align the #test object 10px away from the right border alignit(document.getElementById('test'), 'right-10 middle');
And finally, if you want to align the item against an element other than it's immediate parameter specify a third argument:
// align the test element against the document body alignit(document.getElementById('test'), 'right middle', document.body);
For a working example, I'd recommend checking out the example.
When using alignit it's worth being aware of the following:
- An element will need to be visible before you can effectively alignit. This is something I consistently forget and have been caught on multiple occasions trying to align and then show an element only to find that the alignment has failed.
