Sometimes with CSS values they have extensions like px when you get their values using jQuery. This is how you might go about getting the CSS value without the px. If you want to get the css propery values of a dom element such as margin then it will return the px aswell as the value.

For example:

$('#content').css('left');

Would return say: “360px”.

To get just the number value from the css property simple use this:

--ADVERTISEMENT--

$('#content').css('left').replace(/[^-d.]/g, '');
