Get A Style Attribute

I'd like to be able to get the style.left value. I can set the left edge of an element with

document.getElementById(obj).style.left = 15px

how can I get the current value?

You can read the property:

alert(document.getElementById(obj).style.left);

Keep in mind that unless you've actually set the style attribute of the element, the property will be empty. It doesn't obtain the style that was given through the stylesheet.But rather than finding the style property, if you want to check the position use offsetLeft and offsetTop:

alert(document.getElementById(obj).offsetLeft);
