Maintaining Scroll Box Position Upon Page Refresh?
Jul 5, 2009
I would like to have the scroll box content to go to the same position that it had before the page is refreshed rather than go to the top of the scroll box content. In other words, if the user scrolls down, then refreshes the page, I want to scroll box content to come back to the same position after the refresh.
I've got a div with an id of messages - It is essentially a chat system however chat usually adds messages to the bottom of a list which means the messages do not get pushed down while you are reading them. This system instead adds the messages to the top. I need a way of finding the current scroll position so that when a new message is added the scroll remains in the same place.
Adapting this code may not be the best method, see what you think.
I have a page where certain actions cause the page to reload and then jumps to an anchor (e.g. #title gets appended to the url) which is disorientating, I think it will soften the blow if the page scrolls to the anchor.
This is code I use to scroll to anchors with links on a page code...
I see that this is a click function. Can this just be amended so that it checks the url and scrolls accordingly?
I have a fairly conventional page split into basically 2 divs one at the top of the viewport and the other at the bottom. The top div represents the header and the bottom div represents the content.
I have a problem in that the content loads in dynamically and when you scroll the content on a page and then click a link to navigate to another page the new content loads partially scrolled, and I need the scrollbar to always start at the top of the page so that the content also does.
Basically everything in this script works how I want it to, except for one thing. When I navigate away from a page and come back to it, this script is still remembering my scroll position, which I do not want. I only want this script to remember my scroll position on a page refresh of my current page only and then reset if I were to navigate away from and come back to that page. How would I go about modifying this script to work how I want it to?
i have a div of height 500px and width 800px. i have set it as auto on over flow and usually i have 500 records displayed so it scrolls. lets say i trigger an even on row number 478 inside that scrollable div and that event causes a page reload, can i go back to that same position in side that div? how?
i have a login area (user/pass text boxes). when the user submits the form, the page is reloaded with with a global php variable "loggedIn" set to true. i also store the username and password in the page in a hidden form -- so that it can be passed to other pages on the site through standard navigation (maintaining the "loggedIn" status). however, is there any way to save this information if the user hits refresh?
as it stands, whenever the user hits refresh, the user/pass data is lost, and loggedIn is set to false. can this be worked around without using cookies?
Rather than have several different pages, an app was designed to have different sections, all on one page. To get to the different sections the browser is scrolled down. It may take several submits before everything gets filled out correctly. The user complained because the page would not scroll to the previous position, code was installed to save and restore the page position, but it doesn't always go to the same place. Sometimes it does. Sometimes it doesn't. Two text boxes are used to save position, and the page is regenerated with x and y as literals by the server. The problem seems to be what values are saved as the page is submitted. Code:
Or, is there a better way to achieve what it is I'm trying to do? I just want to have my iframe automatically scroll to specific position on the webpage.
I am making an iphone app...the how-to section is basically one long page that shifts the view to a different div on a touch event. So, say I scroll down 50 lines on div1 and click a link to take me to the top of div2. How would I maintain the scroll position of div1 so when i click 'back' it shifts the view back to div1 and to the last position they were at?
I have a home grown lightbox effect as my client cannot have community code such as JQuery, mootools etc running on their site (don't ask me....). All is working fine, the background darken mask with the box itself with the content. The only problem I'm having is what happens when the user scrolls.
As the mask is calculated upon clicking a link to display the lightbox, the method calculates the current screen area and uses that to create the height and width of the mask. But obviously if you scroll, you leave the mask behindat the top of the screen covering the calculated area. Is there a way to access the onscroll event to say rerun the specific function that calculates the mask area when the user scrolls so the mask stays constantly covering the available screen area? I suppose this is similar to those scripts where a div remains in view when the user scrolls - presumably something along those lines?
I found and tried a script to do with captured delta movement of the mousewheel but that disconnect the mouse wheel from the scrolling of the scroll bar and associated it only with the script in hand - I would like the browser to still scroll and my function to be fired on each scroll event.
how to automatically scroll the page inside an IFrame? I have an IFrame that has no scroll bars, but there's a bit of whitespace that I want to get rid of. Unfortunately, the page in question doesn't have an element in the right area with an ID that I can anchor to.
Running a loop that checks the position of the scroll bar. If the scroll bar height is the same as its div container it is always positioned at the bottom.Else the scroll bar is not positioned at the bottom and allowed to scroll freely.Problem I am having is telling the scroll bar to be positioned back at the bottom if the user scrolls to the bottom again.
