Scenario: You have a div with some text, this div has no css width, no jquery width, no width attribute assigned to it in any way. However it has a width due to the content that is inside it, this is undefined, reports as "null" in jQuery. My question is: is there any way to retireve the width of this div?
with jquery you can do below
$(element).width() should give you the actual width. With
$(element).outerWidth(includeMargin) you can even get the width including padding, border, and, if desired, the margin.
