Description Author

This object can measure page area width and height interactively.

It lets the user define an area in the page dragging the mouse pointer.

The object renders the area outline as the mouse moves, showing the width and height of the area in pixels, as well the coordinates of the top-left corner of the area.

A bookmarklet is also available, so this object can be used as link placed for instance in the browser toolbar.

Sometimes developers need to inspect the elements in the pages generated by their applications to check if they have the dimensions they expect, besides other types of page element details.

This object can assist developers in that task. It lets them point and click on the page to measure the areas that cover the elements they want to check.
