Fx.Scroll Method: constructor

Syntax

var myFx = new Fx.Scroll(element[, options]);

Arguments

  1. element - (mixed) A string of the id for an Element or an Element reference to scroll.
  2. options - (object, optional) All Fx Options in addition to offset and wheelStops.

Options:

  1. offset - (object: defaults to {'x': 0, 'y': 0}) An object with x and y properties of the distance to scroll to within the Element.
  2. wheelStops - (boolean: defaults to true) If false, the mouse wheel will not stop the transition from happening.

Returns

  • (object) A new Fx.Scroll instance.

Examples

var myFx = new Fx.Scroll('myElement', {
    offset: {
        x: 0,
        y: 100
    }
}).toTop();

Notes

  • Fx.Scroll transition will stop on mousewheel movement if the wheelStops option is not set to false. This is to allow users to control their web experience.
  • Fx.Scroll is useless for Elements without scrollbars.

Fx.Scroll Method: set

Scrolls the specified Element to the x/y coordinates immediately.

Syntax

myFx.set(x, y);

Arguments

  1. x - (number) The x coordinate to scroll the Element to.

Returns

  • (object) This Fx.Scroll instance.

Examples

var myElement = $(document.body);
var myFx = new Fx.Scroll(myElement).set(0, 0.5 * document.body.offsetHeight);

Fx.Scroll Method: start

Scrolls the specified Element to the x/y coordinates provided.

Syntax

myFx.start(x, y);

Arguments

  1. x - (number) The x coordinate to scroll the Element to.
  2. y - (number) The y coordinate to scroll the Element to.

Returns
