Is there a way to retrieve the position (X,Y) of an HTML element?

    You can use the .position() function of JQuery.

    From the official documentation,

    <style>
      div {
        padding: 15px;
      }
      p {
        margin-left: 10px;
      }
      </style>
      <script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery-1.10.2.js"></script>
    
    <div>
      <p>Hello</p>
    </div>
    <p></p>
    
    <script>
    var p = $( "p:first" );
    var position = p.position();
    $( "p:last" ).text( "left: " + position.left + ", top: " + position.top );
    </script>
