Height in jQuery

Height is the vertical measurement of the container, for example, height of a div. It excludes the padding border and margin.

To get the height of an element in jQuery, use the height() method in jQuery.

Example

You can try to run the following code to get the height:

Live Demo

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/3.2.1/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script>
$(document).ready(function(){
    $("button").click(function(){
        alert("Height of div element: " + $("div").height());
    });
});
</script>
</head>
<body>

<div style="height:300px;width:450px;padding:20px;margin:1px;border:1px solid red; background-color:gray;"></div><br>

<button>Get Height of div</button>

</body>
</html>

               var color = $(this).css("background-color");
               var height = $(this).innerHeight();
               $("#result").html("Inner Height is <span>" +
                  height + "</span>.");
               $("#result").css({'color': color, 'background-color':'gray'});
               $("#result").height( height );
            });    
         });
      </script>
       
      <style>
         #div1{
