Example of jQuery innerHeight() method

Let's take an example to demonstrate the jQuery innerHeight() method.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html xmlns="">
    <script src="">
<script type="text/javascript">
   $(document).ready(function () {
       $("button").click(function () {
       $("#divHeight").html("Inner Height of div is: " + $("#Main").innerHeight());
   <div id="Main" style="height:100px;width:400px;padding:10px;margin:3px
       ;border:1px solid blue;background-color:lightpink;"></div><br> 
<button>Click here to get the inner height of the div</button> 
   <div id="divHeight"></div>


Above code snippet when we click on button then it will show above div id=”main”

innerHeight inside div id=”divHeight”.
