Nifty scroll events for jQuery

Adds slick new scroll events to jQuery (like

enter
and
leave
) so you can drop scrolling effects like a boss. Requires jQuery 1.11+.

Usage

Load up

jquery.scrollex.min.js
(after jQuery):

Then call

scrollex()
on a selector with a configuration object, which is where you'll associate handlers with the events you want to use and set various Scrollex options (see Configuration Reference below). For example, this uses the
enter
and
leave
events to change the background color of
#foobar
to green when we scroll within its boundaries (its contact area), then back again when we scroll out of it:
$(function() {
  $('#foobar').scrollex({
    enter: function() {

  // Set #foobar's background color to green when we scroll into it.
    $(this).css('background-color', 'green');

},
leave: function() {

  // Reset #foobar's background color when we scroll out of it.
    $(this).css('background-color', '');

}

}); });

Events

Scrollex supports the following events:

enter

Triggered when the viewport enters an element's contact area. Behavior can be tweaked using the

mode
,
top
, and
bottom
options (see next section).

leave

Triggered when the viewport leaves an element's contact area. Behavior can be tweaked using the

mode
,
top
, and
bottom
options (see next section).

initialize

Triggered as soon as

scrollex()
is called on an element.

terminate

Triggered as soon as

unscrollex()
is called on an element, which is used to gracefully undo a previous
scrollex()
call.

scroll

Triggered as the viewport scrolls through an element. The handler associated with this event is called with a normalized value representing how far the viewport has scrolled through the element (between

0
and
1
, although values outside this range are possible if the viewport is above or below the element). For example:
$(function() {
  $('#foobar').scrollex({
    scroll: function(progress) {

  // Progressively increase #foobar's opacity as we scroll through it.
    $(this).css('opacity', Math.max(0, Math.min(1, progress)));

}

}); });

mode
,
top
, and
bottom

Events that depend on the viewport's position relative to an element's contact area (currently just

enter
and
leave
) can be further tweaked using the
mode
,
top
, and
bottom
options.

mode

This determines the rules Scrollex uses to figure out when the viewport is considered "inside" or "outside" an element's contact area. Can be any of the following:

Value

Behavior

default
| Element's contact area must fall within the viewport.
top
| Top viewport edge must fall within the element's contact area.
bottom
| Bottom viewport edge must fall within the element's contact area.
middle
| Midpoint between top/bottom viewport edges must fall within the element's contact area.

top
and
bottom

These let you "pad" the edges of an element's contact area using either a pixel value (

150
) a percentage of that element's height (
25%
), or a percentage of the viewport's height (
20vh
). Positive values work inward and shrink the contact area, while negative values work outward and expand the contact area. For example, this expands the contact area of
#foobar
by 20% of its height in both directions, resulting in
enter
triggering a bit earlier and
leave
a bit later:
$(function() {
  $('#foobar').scrollex({
    top: '-20%',
    bottom: '-20%',
    enter: function() {
      $(this).css('background-color', 'green');

},
leave: function() {
  $(this).css('background-color', '');
}

}); });
