WebRenderer DOM




Element from point




Retrieving DOM elements from a mouse click/point on screen

The WebRenderer DOM method elementFromPoint is one of the DOMs most useful and powerful methods. elementFromPoint retrieves the HTML DOM element from the point. This is particularly useful for getting IElements from mouse clicks on screen.

//Required imports
import com.webrenderer.event.MouseAdapter;
import com.webrenderer.event.MouseEvent;

IBrowserCanvas browser = BrowserFactory.spawnMozilla();

//Getting the DOM Document
IDocument document = browser.getDocument();
IElement element = document.elementFromPoint(100, 100);

Practical example in a Mouse Listener

browser.addMouseListener(new MouseAdapter() {
   public void onClick(MouseEvent e) {
         //Getting the IElement from the corresponding click
         IElement element = document.elementFromPoint(e.getX(), e.getY());
         System.out.println("Element:" + element.getTagName());
