jQuery custom content scroller

jQuery custom content scroller

Highly customizable custom scrollbar jQuery plugin. Features include vertical and/or horizontal scrollbar(s), adjustable scrolling momentum, mouse-wheel (via jQuery mousewheel plugin), keyboard and touch support, ready-to-use themes and customization via CSS, RTL direction support, option parameters for full control of scrollbar functionality, methods for triggering actions like scroll-to, update, destroy etc., user-defined callbacks and more.

Current version 3.1.5 (Changelog)
Upgrading from version 2

When upgrading from version 2.x to 3.x it’s important to use version 3 CSS and .png files. Version 3 is backwards compatible but it’s also a huge overhaul. One significant change is that you don’t need to call the update method manually (the script does it automatically). For more info see changelog.

Version 2 is still maintained and updated here.


How to use it

Get started by downloading the archive which contains the plugin files (and a large amount of HTML demos and examples). Extract and upload jquery.mCustomScrollbar.concat.min.js, jquery.mCustomScrollbar.css and mCSB_buttons.png to your web server (alternatively you can load plugin files from a CDN).

Instead of hosting the plugin files on your web server, you can load them directly from a CDN like jsdelivr, Github etc.

  • jsdelivr versioned/minified
    • //cdn.jsdelivr.net/jquery.mcustomscrollbar/3.0.6/jquery.mCustomScrollbar.concat.min.js
    • //cdn.jsdelivr.net/jquery.mcustomscrollbar/3.0.6/jquery.mCustomScrollbar.min.css
    • //cdn.jsdelivr.net/jquery.mcustomscrollbar/3.0.6/mCSB_buttons.png
  • Github latest/minified

    • //malihu.github.io/custom-scrollbar/jquery.mCustomScrollbar.min.css
    • //malihu.github.io/custom-scrollbar/mCSB_buttons.png


HTML

Include jquery.mCustomScrollbar.css in the head tag your HTML document (more info)

jquery.mCustomScrollbar.css contains the styling of the custom scrollbar and themes. It should normally be included in the head tag of your html (typically before any script tags). If you wish to reduce http requests and/or have all your website stylesheet in a single file, you should move/copy scrollbars styling in your main CSS document.

mCSB_buttons.png contains all the button arrows (up, down, left and right) as image sprites for all scrollbar themes. The plugin archive contains the PSD source (source-files/mCSB_buttons.psd) so you can change them or add your own. This file should be in the same directory with plugin stylesheet.


<link rel="stylesheet" href="/path/to/jquery.mCustomScrollbar.css" />

Include jQuery library (if your project doesn’t use it already) and jquery.mCustomScrollbar.concat.min.js in the head tag or at the very bottom of your document, just before the closing body tag

Some frameworks and CMS include jQuery library in the head tag to make sure it’s loaded when other scripts request it. Usually, including .js files on the bottom of the HTML document (just before the closing body tag) is recommended for better performance. In any case, jQuery must be included first, before plugin scripts.


<script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.11.1/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="/path/to/jquery.mCustomScrollbar.concat.min.js"></script>

CSS

The element(s) you want to add scrollbar(s) should have the typical CSS properties of an overflowed block which are a height (or max-height) value, an overflow value of auto (or hidden) and content long enough to require scrolling. For horizontal scrollbar, the element should have a width (or max-width) value set.

If you prefer to set your element’s height/width via javascript, you can use the setHeight/setWidth option parameters.

Initialization

Initialize via javascript

After files inclusion, call mCustomScrollbar function on the element selector you want to add the scrollbar(s)

<script>
    (function($){
        $(window).on("load",function(){
            $(".content").mCustomScrollbar();
        });
    })(jQuery);
</script>

more info

The code is wrapped in (function($){ ... })(jQuery);. This ensures no conflict between jQuery and other libraries using $ shortcut (see Avoiding Conflicts with Other Libraries for more info). The plugin function is called in $(window).on("load") so it executes after all page elements (like images) are loaded.

You can change the function selector ".content" to any selector you want (an element id, class name, js variable etc.). For instance, if you want custom scrollbars to apply on the element with id content-1, you simply do:

$("#content-1").mCustomScrollbar();

You may also have multiple selectors by inserting comma separated values

$(".content,#content-1").mCustomScrollbar();

The above code adds custom scrollbars to a)every element with class name content and b)the element with id content-1.

Additionally, you may want to call mCustomScrollbar multiple times within a page in order to set different options (configuration and option parameters explained below) for each selector

<script>
  (function($){
    $(window).on("load",function(){
      $("#vertical-content").mCustomScrollbar({
        theme:"light-3",
        scrollButtons:{
          enable:true
        }
      });
      $("#horizontal-content").mCustomScrollbar({
        axis:"x",
        theme:"3d"
      });
    });
  })(jQuery);
</script>

Initialize via HTML

Add the class mCustomScrollbar to any element you want to add custom scrollbar(s) with default options. Optionally, set its axis via the HTML data attribute data-mcs-axis (e.g. "x" for horizontal and "y" for vertical) and its theme via data-mcs-theme. For example:

<div class="mCustomScrollbar" data-mcs-theme="dark">
  <!-- your content -->
</div>

Basic configuration & option parameters

axis

By default, the script applies a vertical scrollbar. To add a horizontal or 2-axis scrollbars, invoke mCustomScrollbar function with the axis option set to "x" or "yx" respectively

$(".content").mCustomScrollbar({
    axis:"x" // horizontal scrollbar
});
$(".content").mCustomScrollbar({
    axis:"yx" // vertical and horizontal scrollbar
});

theme

To quickly change the appearance of the scrollbar, set the theme option parameter to any of the ready-to-use themes available in jquery.mCustomScrollbar.css, for example:

$(".content").mCustomScrollbar({
    theme:"dark"
});

Configuration

You can configure your scrollbar(s) using the following option parameters on mCustomScrollbar function
Usage $(selector).mCustomScrollbar({ option: value });

setWidth: false
Set the width of your content (overwrites CSS width), value in pixels (integer) or percentage (string).
setHeight: false
Set the height of your content (overwrites CSS height), value in pixels (integer) or percentage (string).
setTop: 0
Set the initial css top property of content, accepts string values (css top position).
Example: setTop: "-100px".
setLeft: 0
Set the initial css left property of content, accepts string values (css left position).
Example: setLeft: "-100px".
axis: "string"
Define content’s scrolling axis (the type of scrollbars added to the element: vertical and/of horizontal).
Available values: "y", "x", "yx".

  • axis: "y" – vertical scrollbar (default)
  • axis: "x" – horizontal scrollbar
  • axis: "yx" – vertical and horizontal scrollbars
scrollbarPosition: "string"
Set the position of scrollbar in relation to content.
Available values: "inside", "outside".
Setting scrollbarPosition: "inside" (default) makes scrollbar appear inside the element. Setting scrollbarPosition: "outside" makes scrollbar appear outside the element. Note that setting the value to "outside" requires your element (or parent elements) to have CSS position: relative (otherwise the scrollbar will be positioned in relation to document’s root element).
scrollInertia: integer
Set the amount of scrolling momentum as animation duration in milliseconds.
Higher value equals greater scrolling momentum which translates to smoother/more progressive animation. Set to 0 to disable.
autoDraggerLength: boolean
Enable or disable auto-adjusting scrollbar dragger length in relation to scrolling amount (same bahavior with browser’s native scrollbar).
Set autoDraggerLength: false when you want your scrollbar to (always) have a fixed size.
autoHideScrollbar: boolean
Enable or disable auto-hiding the scrollbar when inactive.
Setting autoHideScrollbar: true will hide the scrollbar(s) when scrolling is idle and/or cursor is out of the scrolling area.
Please note that some special themes like “minimal” overwrite this option.
autoExpandScrollbar: boolean
Enable or disable auto-expanding the scrollbar when cursor is over or dragging the scrollbar.
alwaysShowScrollbar: integer
Always keep scrollbar(s) visible, even when there’s nothing to scroll.

  • alwaysShowScrollbar: 0 – disable (default)
  • alwaysShowScrollbar: 1 – keep dragger rail visible
  • alwaysShowScrollbar: 2 – keep all scrollbar components (dragger, rail, buttons etc.) visible
snapAmount: integer
Make scrolling snap to a multiple of a fixed number of pixels. Useful in cases like scrolling tabular data, image thumbnails or slides and you need to prevent scrolling from stopping half-way your elements. Note that your elements must be of equal width or height in order for this to work properly.
To set different values for vertical and horizontal scrolling, use an array: [y,x]
snapOffset: integer
Set an offset (in pixels) for the snapAmount option. Useful when for example you need to offset the snap amount of table rows by the table header.
mouseWheel:{ enable: boolean }
Enable or disable content scrolling via mouse-wheel.
mouseWheel:{ scrollAmount: integer }
Set the mouse-wheel scrolling amount (in pixels). The default value "auto" adjusts scrolling amount according to scrollable content length.
mouseWheel:{ axis: "string" }
Define the mouse-wheel scrolling axis when both vertical and horizontal scrollbars are present.
Set axis: "y" (default) for vertical or axis: "x" for horizontal scrolling.
mouseWheel:{ preventDefault: boolean }
Prevent the default behaviour which automatically scrolls the parent element when end or beginning of scrolling is reached (same bahavior with browser’s native scrollbar).
mouseWheel:{ deltaFactor: integer }
Set the number of pixels one wheel notch scrolls. The default value “auto” uses the OS/browser value.
mouseWheel:{ normalizeDelta: boolean }
Enable or disable mouse-wheel (delta) acceleration. Setting normalizeDelta: true translates mouse-wheel delta value to -1 or 1.
mouseWheel:{ invert: boolean }
Invert mouse-wheel scrolling direction. Set to true to scroll down or right when mouse-wheel is turned upwards.
mouseWheel:{ disableOver: [array] }
Set the tags that disable mouse-wheel when cursor is over them.
Default value:
["select","option","keygen","datalist","textarea"]
scrollButtons:{ enable: boolean }
Enable or disable scrollbar buttons.
scrollButtons:{ scrollAmount: integer }
Set the buttons scrolling amount (in pixels). The default value "auto" adjusts scrolling amount according to scrollable content length.
scrollButtons:{ scrollType: "string" }
Define the buttons scrolling type/behavior.

  • scrollType: "stepless" – continuously scroll content while pressing the button (default)
  • scrollType: "stepped" – each button click scrolls content by a certain amount (defined in scrollAmount option above)
scrollButtons:{ tabindex: integer }
Set a tabindex value for the buttons.
keyboard:{ enable: boolean }
Enable or disable content scrolling via the keyboard.
The plugin supports the directional arrows (top, left, right and down), page-up (PgUp), page-down (PgDn), Home and End keys.
keyboard:{ scrollAmount: integer }
Set the keyboard arrows scrolling amount (in pixels). The default value "auto" adjusts scrolling amount according to scrollable content length.
keyboard:{ scrollType: "string" }
Define the keyboard arrows scrolling type/behavior.

  • scrollType: "stepless" – continuously scroll content while pressing the arrow key (default)
  • scrollType: "stepped" – each key release scrolls content by a certain amount (defined in scrollAmount option above)
contentTouchScroll: integer
Enable or disable content touch-swipe scrolling for touch-enabled devices.
To completely disable, set contentTouchScroll: false.
Integer values define the axis-specific minimum amount required for scrolling momentum (default: 25).
documentTouchScroll: boolean
Enable or disable document touch-swipe scrolling for touch-enabled devices.
advanced:{ autoExpandHorizontalScroll: boolean }
Auto-expand content horizontally (for "x" or "yx" axis).
If set to true, content will expand horizontally to accommodate any floated/inline-block elements.
Setting its value to 2 (integer) forces the non scrollHeight/scrollWidth method. A value of 3 forces the scrollHeight/scrollWidth method.
advanced:{ autoScrollOnFocus: "string" }
Set the list of elements/selectors that will auto-scroll content to their position when focused.
For example, when pressing TAB key to focus input fields, if the field is out of the viewable area the content will scroll to its top/left position (same bahavior with browser’s native scrollbar).
To completely disable this functionality, set autoScrollOnFocus: false.
Default:
"input,textarea,select,button,datalist,keygen,a[tabindex],area,object,[contenteditable='true']"
advanced:{ updateOnContentResize: boolean }
Update scrollbar(s) automatically on content, element or viewport resize.
The value should be true (default) for fluid layouts/elements, adding/removing content dynamically, hiding/showing elements etc.
advanced:{ updateOnImageLoad: boolean }
Update scrollbar(s) automatically each time an image inside the element is fully loaded.
Default value is auto which triggers the function only on "x" and "yx" axis (if needed).
The value should be true when your content contains images and you need the function to trigger on any axis.
advanced:{ updateOnSelectorChange: "string" }
Update scrollbar(s) automatically when the amount and size of specific selectors changes.
Useful when you need to update the scrollbar(s) automatically, each time a type of element is added, removed or changes its size.
For example, setting updateOnSelectorChange: "ul li" will update scrollbars each time list-items inside the element are changed.
Setting the value to true, will update scrollbars each time any element is changed.
To disable (default) set to false.
advanced:{ extraDraggableSelectors: "string" }
Add extra selector(s) that’ll release scrollbar dragging upon mouseup, pointerup, touchend etc.
Example: extraDraggableSelectors: ".myClass, #myID"
advanced:{ releaseDraggableSelectors: "string" }
Add extra selector(s) that’ll allow scrollbar dragging upon mousemove/up, pointermove/up, touchend etc.
Example: releaseDraggableSelectors: ".myClass, #myID"
advanced:{ autoUpdateTimeout: integer }
Set the auto-update timeout in milliseconds.
Default timeout: 60

Plugin methods

Ways to execute various plugin actions programmatically from within your script(s).

update

Usage $(selector).mCustomScrollbar("update");

Call the update method to manually update existing scrollbars to accommodate new content or resized element(s). This method is by default called automatically by the script (via updateOnContentResize option) when the element itself, its content or scrollbar size changes.

view examples

/* initialize plugin with auto-update options disabled */
$(selector).mCustomScrollbar({
  advanced:{
    updateOnContentResize: false,
    updateOnImageLoad: false
  }
});

/* at some point in your js script/code update scrollbar manually */
$(selector).mCustomScrollbar("update");

scrollTo

Usage $(selector).mCustomScrollbar("scrollTo",position,options);

Call the scrollTo method to programmatically scroll the content to the position parameter (demo).

position parameter

Position parameter can be:

  • "string"
    • e.g. element selector: "#element-id"
    • e.g. special pre-defined position: "bottom"
    • e.g. number of pixels less/more: "-=100"/"+=100"
  • integer
    • e.g. number of pixels: 100
  • [array]
    • e.g. different y/x position: [100,50]
  • object/function
    • e.g. jQuery object: $("#element-id")
    • e.g. js object: document.getelementbyid("element-id")
    • e.g. function: function(){ return 100; }

Pre-defined position strings:

  • "bottom" – scroll to bottom
  • "top" – scroll to top
  • "right" – scroll to right
  • "left" – scroll to left
  • "first" – scroll to the position of the first element within content
  • "last" – scroll to the position of the last element within content

view examples

Scroll to element with id “#el-1″

$(selector).mCustomScrollbar("scrollTo","#el-1");

Scroll to top

$(selector).mCustomScrollbar("scrollTo","top");

Scroll by 100 pixels down or right

var val=100;
$(selector).mCustomScrollbar("scrollTo","-="+val);

Scroll by 100 pixels up or left

$(selector).mCustomScrollbar("scrollTo","+=100");

Scroll by 100 pixels down and by 50 pixels right

$(selector).mCustomScrollbar("scrollTo",["-=100","-=50"]);

Scroll to the fifth paragraph

$(selector).mCustomScrollbar("scrollTo",$("p:eq(4)"));

Scroll to the last element within your content

$(selector).mCustomScrollbar("scrollTo","last");

Scroll to some variable value

var val=document.getelementbyid("element-id");
$(selector).mCustomScrollbar("scrollTo",val);

Scroll to 300 pixels

$(selector).mCustomScrollbar("scrollTo",300);

Method options

scrollInertia: integer
Scroll-to duration, value in milliseconds.
Example:
$(selector).mCustomScrollbar("scrollTo","bottom",{
    scrollInertia:3000
});
scrollEasing: "string"
Scroll-to animation easing, values: "linear", "easeOut", "easeInOut".
Example:
$(selector).mCustomScrollbar("scrollTo","bottom",{
    scrollEasing:"easeOut"
});
moveDragger: boolean
Scroll scrollbar dragger (instead of content).
Example:
$(selector).mCustomScrollbar("scrollTo",80,{
    moveDragger:true
});
timeout: integer
Set a timeout for the method (the default timeout is 60 ms in order to work with automatic scrollbar update), value in milliseconds.
Example:
$(selector).mCustomScrollbar("scrollTo","top",{
    timeout:1000
});
callbacks: boolean
Trigger user defined callbacks after scroll-to completes.
Example:
$(selector).mCustomScrollbar("scrollTo","left",{
    callbacks:false
});

stop

Usage $(selector).mCustomScrollbar("stop");

Stops any running scrolling animations (usefull when you wish to interupt a previously scrollTo method call).

disable

Usage $(selector).mCustomScrollbar("disable");

Calling disable method will temporarily disable the scrollbar (demo). Disabled scrollbars can be re-enable by calling the update method.

To disable the scrollbar and reset its content position, set the method’s reset parameter to true

$(selector).mCustomScrollbar("disable",true);

view examples

/* initialize plugin */
$(selector).mCustomScrollbar();

/* at some point in your js script/code disable scrollbar */
$(selector).mCustomScrollbar("disable");

/* re-enable scrollbar as needed */
$(selector).mCustomScrollbar("update");

destroy

Usage $(selector).mCustomScrollbar("destroy");

Calling destroy method will completely remove the custom scrollbar and return the element to its original state (demo).

view examples

/* initialize plugin */
$(selector).mCustomScrollbar();

/* at some point in your js script/code destroy scrollbar */
$(selector).mCustomScrollbar("destroy");

Scrollbar styling & themes

You can design and visually customize your scrollbars with pure CSS, using jquery.mCustomScrollbar.css which contains the default/basic styling and all scrollbar themes.

The easiest/quickest way is to select a ready-to-use scrollbar theme. For example:

$(selector).mCustomScrollbar({
  theme:"dark"
});

View all ready-to-use themes

You can modify the default styling or any theme either directly in jquery.mCustomScrollbar.css or by overwriting the CSS rules in another stylesheet.

Creating a new scrollbar theme

Create a name for your theme (e.g. “my-theme”) and set it as the value of the theme option

$(selector).mCustomScrollbar({
    theme:"my-theme"
});

Your element will get the class “mCS-my-theme” (your theme-name with “mCS” prefix), so you can create your CSS using the .mCS-my-theme in your rules. For instance:

.mCS-my-theme.mCSB_scrollTools .mCSB_dragger .mCSB_dragger_bar{ background-color: red; }
.mCS-my-theme.mCSB_scrollTools .mCSB_draggerRail{ background-color: white; } 
/* and so on... */

In the same manner you can clone any existing theme (e.g. “dark”), change its selector (e.g. .mCS-dark) to your own theme name (e.g. .mCS-my-theme) and modify its CSS rules.

Scrollbar markup

The plugin applies specific id (unique) and/or classes to every scrollbar element/component, meaning that you can target and modify any scrollbar in more than one ways.

For example, every element with a scrollbar gets a unique class in the form of _mCS_1, _mCS_2 etc. Every scrollbar container element gets a unique id in the form of mCSB_1_scrollbar_vertical, mCSB_2_scrollbar_vertical etc. Every scrollbar dragger gets a unique id in the form of mCSB_1_dragger_vertical, mCSB_2_dragger_vertical etc. in addition to the class mCSB_dragger. All these mean that you can do stuff like:

._mCS_1 .mCSB_dragger .mCSB_dragger_bar{ background-color: red; }

._mCS_2 .mCSB_dragger .mCSB_dragger_bar{ background-color: green; }

#mCSB_3_dragger_vertical .mCSB_dragger_bar{ background-color: blue; }

#mCSB_1_scrollbar_vertical .mCSB_dragger{ height: 100px; }

#mCSB_1_scrollbar_horizontal .mCSB_dragger{ width: 100px; }

.mCSB_1_scrollbar .mCSB_dragger .mCSB_draggerRail{ width: 4px; }

Custom scrollbar layout

User-defined callbacks

You can trigger your own js function(s) by calling them inside mCustomScrollbar callbacks option parameter

$(".content").mCustomScrollbar({
    callbacks:{
        onScroll:function(){
            myCustomFn(this);
        }
    }
});

function myCustomFn(el){
    console.log(el.mcs.top);
}

In the example above, each time a scroll event ends and content has stopped scrolling, the content’s top position will be logged in browser’s console. There are available callbacks for each step of the scrolling event:

  • onScrollStart – triggers the moment a scroll event starts
  • whileScrolling – triggers while scroll event is running
  • onScroll – triggers when a scroll event completes
  • onTotalScroll – triggers when content has scrolled all the way to bottom or right
  • onTotalScrollBack – triggers when content has scrolled all the way back to top or left

You can set an offset value (pixels) for both onTotalScroll and onTotalScrollBack by setting onTotalScrollOffset and onTotalScrollBackOffset respectively (view example).

The following will trigger the callback function when content has scrolled to bottom minus 100 pixels

$(".content").mCustomScrollbar({
    callbacks:{
        onTotalScroll:function(){
            console.log("scrolled to bottom");
        },
    onTotalScrollOffset:100
    }
});

By default, onTotalScroll and onTotalScrollBack callbacks are triggered repeatedly. To prevent multiple calls when content is within their offset, set alwaysTriggerOffsets option to false (view example).

$(".content").mCustomScrollbar({
    callbacks:{
        onTotalScroll:function(){
            console.log("scrolled to bottom");
        },
    onTotalScrollOffset:100,
    alwaysTriggerOffsets:false
    }
});

Additional callbacks:

Returning values

The script returns a number of values and objects related to scrollbar that you can use in your own functions

  • this – the original element containing the scrollbar(s)
  • this.mcs.content – the original content wrapper as jquery object
  • this.mcs.top – content’s top position (pixels)
  • this.mcs.left – content’s left position (pixels)
  • this.mcs.draggerTop – scrollbar dragger’s top position (pixels)
  • this.mcs.draggerLeft – scrollbar dragger’s left position (pixels)
  • this.mcs.topPct – content vertical scrolling percentage
  • this.mcs.leftPct – content horizontal scrolling percentage
  • this.mcs.direction – content’s scrolling direction (y or x)

view examples

Load more content when scrolled to bottom

$(selector).mCustomScrollbar({
    callbacks:{
        onTotalScroll:function(){
            this.mcs.content.append("...");
        }
    }
});

Run code when at least half of the content is scrolled

$(selector).mCustomScrollbar({
    callbacks:{
        whileScrolling:function(){
            var pct=this.mcs.topPct;
            if(pct>=50){
              /* do something... */
            }
        }
    }
});

Plugin-specific jQuery expressions

$("#myID:mcsInView")
Select element(s) in your content that are within scrollable viewport.
As condition: $("#myID").is(":mcsInView");
$(".content:mcsOverflow")
Select overflowed element(s) with visible scrollbar.
As condition: $(".content").is(":mcsOverflow");
$("#myID:mcsInSight")
$("#myID:mcsInSight(exact)")
Select element(s) in your content that are in view of the scrollable viewport. Using the exact parameter will include elements that have any part of them (even 1 pixel) in view of the scrollable viewport.
As condition: $("#myID").is(":mcsInSight");, $("#myID").is(":mcsInSight(exact)");

        When posting code in comments, it’s better to place it in code tags (see available HTML tags below comment textarea).

        To apply the custom scrollbar on the body tag, just set html height to 100% (at the moment you only have it on the body):
        html{ height: 100%; }

        You’ll also need to set the body overflow to hidden (to completely hide the default scrollbar):
        body{ overflow: hidden; }

    Hello Malihu,
    thank you for the great plugin but i have a little question…
    My header has a background-image:

    CSS:
    “background: url(../img/image-bg-white.jpg) 50% 0 no-repeat center top fixed;
    height: 100% !important;”

    i’m having conflit with your plugin, can you help me?
    “center” hide my background-image
    and “height:100%” cut my background-image

    PLUGIN-SETTINGS:

    (function($){
    $(window).load(function(){

    $(“body”).mCustomScrollbar({
    theme:”dark-thin”,
    scrollButtons: { enable: true },
    });

    });
    })(jQuery);

    Thank you my friend!

          The #header’s 100% height value is the one that causing this, because its parent element is not the body. It’s parent container becomes the plugin’s wrapper (.mCSB_container) which needs to have an height value set to “auto” in order for the scrollbar to work.

          There are more than one workarounds for this but the easiest is setting #header height to viewport units instead of percentage:
          #header { min-width: 100vh; height: 100vh; }

          You could also do the same with jQuery if you need to support old browsers, e.g.:
          $(window).resize(function(){ $("#header").css("height",$(this).height()); }

      You’ll have to use the scrollTo method after your div is shown (after animation, if any, is complete):
      $(selector).mCustomScrollbar("scrollTo","bottom");

    Hi malihu,

    thanks for your super plugin! It would be cool if you can answer my following questions:

    1. what is option to set scroller on bottom in default? so that we can scroll from bottom to top in default.

    2. did you check scroller on slack? their scroller is great when a new chat tile is added to content list. It seems they only increase height of scroller when it reach one defined condition. In addition, scroller always keep on bottom when new message come in. With your plugin, I noticed a quick flash.

      Hello,

      1. You can use setTop option parameter and inserting any value that exceeds scrolling limit, e.g.
      setTop: "-9999px"

      or use the scrollTo method after scrollbar initialization:
      $(selector).mCustomScrollbar("scrollTo","bottom");

      2. You can fine-tune the scrollTo method to trigger instantly like this:
      $(selector).mCustomScrollbar("scrollTo","bottom",{ scrollInertia:0, timeout:0 });

      Yes, mouse-wheel delta on Firefox is a bit lower than say Chrome (at least in Windows). In general, mouse-wheel scrolling is affected by many factors (OS, browser, input device etc.).

      You can use plugin’s scrollAmount option parameter to set a fixed scrolling amount (in pixels), e.g.
      mouseWheel:{ scrollAmount: 60 }

      I think that you have to set your element’s CSS to:
      overflow: hidden;
      It’s value is probably “auto” so just change it to “hidden”.

      The plugin provides a number of option parameters for setting/modifying mouse-wheel scrolling. You can use the mouseWheel scrollAmount option paraneter to set a fixed value for mouse-wheel. For example:
      mouseWheel:{ scrollAmount: 100 }

          To remove the custom scrollbar, you can use the destroy method in your script(s):
          $(selector).mCustomScrollbar("destroy");

          To re-create it after it’s destroyed:
          $(selector).mCustomScrollbar();

Because I have a container at 100% width and don’t want to use the scrollbar at 100% of the container, I’ll like to put it in the middle of the container maybe at 50% percent the real width.

    Well, this plugin seems to cause other problems too. When I install some forum plugins which add some extra buttons, it makes those plugins add the buttons twice. If I disable this plugin, the forum plugins work right. Could be some issue with something executing twice on the page? I took a look at the timeline in the dev console, but didn’t see anything to give me a clue which part of the custom scroller could be causing this.

    Hey there, thanks for the plugin. I am running into an issue though. I wrote a small script using jQuery’s scrollTop() method, but it doesn’t work, although it works on a page I tested locally. If I disable your plugin, it starts working. I’ve also tried to enable jQuery to work in no conflict mode, because I thought maybe the page is losing the jQuery object reference. Didn’t work either. My script was basically monitoring the position of the scrollbar and hiding or showing the navbar depending on this position. At this point, I’m thinking this must be caused because your plugin disabled the default window scroll bar and created some custom ones. Is that right? What is the name of those objects and how can I detect the position of this custom scrollbar to be able to have navbar toggling events?
    Thanks.

      Yes that’s right. scrollTop() works only with browser’s native scrollbar.

      The plugin provides the scrollTo method along with callbacks and objects so you can do whatever you want in your script(s). For more info see:

      Methods: scrollTo
      User-defined callbacks

    Hello there, I love your plugin

    I’m trying to figure out how to use the scrollto function on window load. For some reason, it seems to work differently depending on the browser. On Firefox, the anchor link points out successfully to the element id, but then when I scroll it goes right up to the top of the page. On Chrome, it doesn’t work at all and I arrive directly at the top of the page.

    To be more precise, I’m using PHP, and trying to link from one page to a specific anchor of another page. And the anchor is dynamic, like this :

    on Page 1

    on Page 2.

    Can you help towards a solution ? Thank you and much appreciated.

      In fact now that I try again (maybe it was a caching pb), it works the same both on Chrome and FF. The anchor seems to work fine as I arrive at the specific div on window load. But unfortunately, as soon as I start scrolling from there, it goes straight up to the top of the page. It doesn’t appear as if the scroll bar exists at all on window load, only when I start scrolling from the top. Any ideas ?

      To make anchor links like #id work with custom scrollbar you need to use a custom script which will call plugin’s scrollTo method.

      If your links point to the same page, you can use the function described here in your script:
      http://manos.malihu.gr/code-example/scroll-to-id-within-element-with-custom-scrollbars/

      If you need to scroll to the hash in the browser’s address bar (to/from a different page), you could do something like:
      <script> (function($){ $(window).load(function(){ $(selector).mCustomScrollbar(); //scrollbar initialization //use plugin's scrollTo method to scroll-to location hash var to=window.location.hash.replace("/",""); //get hash (element id) $(selector).mCustomScrollbar("scrollTo",to); //call scrollTo }); })(jQuery); </script>

      Hope this helps

    Hello,

    First thanks for this great plugin !
    I only have a little question, I didn’t find how can I define the dragger bar width in pixel ? When I did it through CSS the dragger bar it doesn’t go completely to the left and right.

    Thanks for your help !

      Hello,

      This depends on many things (e.g. amount of scrollbars, content etc.) but the plugin has some functions enabled by default which you might not need. Try for example to disable updateOnImageLoad:
      advanced:{ updateOnImageLoad: false }
      and check again your CPU usage.

      Let me know if this helps

    Only the visible content of the scroller is printed. Is there a simple way to print the full content of the scroller? Many thanks for any help on this.

    Hello ! great plugin but I can’t set it to slow down scroll speed on mobile device? (android/chrome) I want user to be forced to scroll down multiple times before reaching end/bottom of page not to be able to do just one swipe and reach end/bottom.

    Can you help me?

    Hey Malihu,

    I love your plugin and great work on it! I just have a question about what would you recommend is the best to deal with cross-browser/device compatibility? I generally have a few issues adjusting the scroll-speed to be at the same rate when:

    1. The content changes and the scrollbar gets larger (I kind of know how to deal with this, but it’d be great if you have some small snippet of an example of handling that :D)
    2. The user is using some other browser/OS that causes the scroll event to trigger a lot of times and it seems much faster than what I’m seeing.

    Great plugin, I’ve managed to mess around with it for the main scrollbar in the body and it works perfectly however when trying to add a custom scrollbar for a div tag the default scrollbar remains.
    I also tried initializing it by wrapping the div in another for the scrollbar but that just made the entire scrollbar disappear, any ideas as to where I’m going wrong?

    here’s my css for the div and my html (the message’s div gets its content from js)

    <body> <div id="card"> <div id="messages"> </div><!-- Messages --> ... <!-- Javascript --> <script> (function($){ $(window).load(function(){ $("#messages").mCustomScrollbar({ theme:"dark-2" }); }); })(jQuery); </script> ... #messages{ margin-left: 6%; width: 88%; height: 80%; padding: 5px; overflow: auto; margin-top: 1%; margin-bottom: 1%; }

    Thanks for any help

      Hello,

      Since #messages height is set in percentage, you also need to set a (fixed) height for its parent(s) element.

      Does this help?
