jQuery How to Get Mouse Cursor Position

Nov 25, 2012

In this 
jQuery snippet I will explain how to get current mouse or cursor position in jQuery.

In previous posts I explained jQuery Allow only numbers in textbox, jQuery Accordion Menu Example,
jQuery lightbox slideshow, jQuery Create Rounded Corners Textbox and many articles relating to JQuery, Now I will explain how to get current position of mouse or cursor in JQuery.

To implement this functionality we need to write the code like as show below

<script type="text/javascript">
$(function() {
$(document).mousemove(function(e) {
$('#lbltxt').html("X Axis: "+e.pageX+"<br/>"+ "Y Axis: "+e.pageY);
If you want to see it in complete example write the following code in your aspx page

<html xmlns="">
<head runat="server">
<title>jQuery Get Mouse or Cursor Position</title>
<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
$(function() {
$(document).mousemove(function(e) {
$('#lbltxt').html("X Axis: "+e.pageX+"<br/>"+ "Y Axis: "+e.pageY);
<form id="form1" runat="server">
<label id="lbltxt" />
Live Demo

To check Live demo try to move your cursor and check x and y axis values below
