Trying to find a way to retrieve

<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/2.1.1/jquery.min.js"></script>

<h1 id="myh1" style="font-size:30px;">Heading 1</h1>
<input type="text" id="get-inline" />

You can get value of any internal css using this script: Try this:

Jsfiddle: https://jsfiddle.net/hfud139c/


<div id="myh1" style="padding-top:10px;height:10px;">Content</div>


$.fn.inlineStyle = function (prop) {
         var styles = this.attr("style"),
         styles && styles.split(";").forEach(function (e) {
             var style = e.split(":");
             if ($.trim(style[0]) === prop) {
                 value = style[1];           
         return value;

    var width = $("#myh1").inlineStyle("padding-top");
