Suggesting 2 methods: Number.between() & Element.getFullSize()

Reported by AHHP | June 1st, 2010 @ 11:23 AM

I've created two methods below for my works because are very handy for me and may help others.
These are not general and perfect, and should develop.

 * Check for a number to be between of two numbers
 * @param number min Minimum number
 * @param number max Maximum number
 * @param mixed equals Set to includes min, max in checking
 * @return boolean
 between: function(min, max, equals) {
  return equals ? (this >= min && this <= max) : (this > min && this < max);
var year = new Date().getFullYear();
if(year.between(2009, 2011, '=')) {
 // do something nice
 * Get outer width/height of an element
 * @param string property ['height'|'width'] to return specified property. Default to 'width'.
 * @return integer
 getFullSize: function(property) {
  var property = (property == 'height' || property == 'width')  ? property : 'width';
  var styles = {
   width: ['width', 'margin-left', 'margin-right', 'padding-left', 'padding-right', 'border-left-width', 'border-right-width'],
   height: ['height', 'margin-top', 'margin-bottom', 'padding-top', 'padding-bottom', 'border-top-width', 'border-bottom-width']
  var size = 0;
   size += this.getComputedStyle(style).toInt();
  }, this);
  return size;
var maxHeight ='element').getFullSize('height');
var minHeight ='element').getFullSize('width');

    MooTools makes it easy for you to extend the native types in JavaScript to create a custom methods. The goal of MooTools Core is to stay lightweight and to only provide the most important features. Feel free to create a plugin and add it to the Forge ( ).

    Also note that your proposed "Number.between" method already exists in MooTools Core under the name "limit" (see )

    No, the proposed Number.between checks whether a value is within a range resulting in a Boolean. The existing Number.limit results in a Number within the range.

    IMO, getFullSize should be implemented in 2.0 (if it isn't already, can't remember). Although with the plain syntax: element.getStyle('width', 'px'). It may already work in kamicane's personal branch.
