jQuery.scrolling

This plugin adds the scrollin and scrollout events to jquery: these events will fire when any given element becomes visible/invisible in the browser viewport, allowing you to:

  • automatically or programmatically show/hide any HTML content as soon as it comes inside or outside the browser viewport (i.e. when the user scrolls to them).
  • prevent unnecessary processing for content that is hidden or is outside of the browser viewport.
  • trigger a custom function or behaviour (such as loading external AJAX content) when a certain point of the page is reached.

and more.

The plugin also supports frame, iframe and/or dynamically-generated content.

Requires jQuery 1.7 or above.

Usage

    $('selector').scrolling(); 
    // It supports optional hash with "checkScrolling" and "interval" keys. 
    // Check source code for details.

    $('<div>content</div>').scrolling(); 
    // It also supports raw DOM nodes wrapped in jQuery.

    $('selector').on('scrollin', function(event, $all_elements) {
      // triggers when 'selector' element comes inside browser viewport.
      // $all_elements contains all the appeared elements.
    });
    
    $('yourselector').on('scrollout', function(event, $all_elements) {
      // triggers when 'selector' element goes outside browser viewport.
      // $all_elements contains all the disappeared elements.
    });

If you want to fire the scrollIn event for elements which are close to viewport but are not visible yet you may either:

  • use the offsetTop and offsetLeft options properties during initialization.

  • add the following custom data attributes offset-top and offset-left to DOM nodes.

      $('#myEl').scrolling({ offsetTop: 100 }); 
      // appear will be fired when "myEl" is 100 or less pixels
      // below browser viewport 
    

or

    <div id="myEl" data-offset-top="100">...</div>
    // same as above using data attributes.

Appear check can also be forced by calling $.checkScrolling(). This is suitable in cases when page is in initial state (not scrolled and not resized) and when you want manually trigger appearance check.

There's also a custom scrollin jQuery filter you can use for manual checking if the element is inside the viewport or not.

    $('selector').is(':scrollin')
