Page scroll to id with mousewheel and keyboard

Code sample which should scroll between page sections created with Page scroll to id plugin, using the mouse-wheel and keyboard arrows.

In order to scroll between page sections via mouse-wheel and/or keyboard you’d normally need custom javascript code made specifically for your site layout/markup but I’ve created a more generic script that works along Page scroll to id plugin. The script uses a special plugin class (_mPS2id-h) in order to work independently from most layouts. This class is related to plugin’s highlight feature, meaning that it should work in most cases.

The script should be placed after Page scroll to id plugin files and function call. If you’re using the WordPress version of the plugin, you should place it wherever your theme allows you to add custom javascript or directly in the footer.php template inside a script (<script>...</script>) tag after wp_footer();

The script

(function($){
  $(window).on("load",function(){

    if(!$(document).data("mPS2id")){
      console.log("Error: 'Page scroll to id' plugin not present or activated. Please run the code after plugin is loaded.");
      return;
    }

    $(document).data("mPS2idExtend",{
      selector:"._mPS2id-h",
      currentSelector:function(){
        return this.index($(".mPS2id-highlight-first").length ? $(".mPS2id-highlight-first") : $(".mPS2id-highlight"));
      },
      input:{y:null,x:null},
      i:null,
      time:null
    }).on("scrollSection",function(e,dlt,i){
      var d=$(this).data("mPS2idExtend"),
        sel=$(d.selector);
      if(!$("html,body").is(":animated")){
        if(!i) i=d.currentSelector.call(sel);
        if(!(i===0 && dlt>0) && !(i===sel.length-1 && dlt<0)) sel.eq(i-dlt).trigger("click.mPS2id");
      }
    }).on("mousewheel DOMMouseScroll",function(e){ //mousewheel
      if($($(this).data("mPS2idExtend").selector).length) e.preventDefault();
      $(this).trigger("scrollSection",((e.originalEvent.detail<0 || e.originalEvent.wheelDelta>0) ? 1 : -1));
    }).on("keydown",function(e){ //keyboard
      var code=e.keyCode ? e.keyCode : e.which,
        keys=$(this).data("mPS2id").layout==="horizontal" ? [37,39] : [38,40];
      if(code===keys[0] || code===keys[1]){
        if($($(this).data("mPS2idExtend").selector).length) e.preventDefault();
        $(this).trigger("scrollSection",(code===keys[0] ? 1 : -1));
      }
    });

  });
})(jQuery);

You can change the selector value to a more specific one if you need. This selector should be your “Page scroll to id” main navigation links, so instead of using simply selector:"._mPS2id-h" you could use for example selector:".menu-item ._mPS2id-h"

The script works best when your sections have the same height (or width for horizontal layouts) as the viewport, which is something that most page layouts with this kind of functionality have.

Extending the script with touch events (optional)

If you want to have the same functionality in touch-devices, you can extend the script above like this:

(function($){
  $(window).on("load",function(){

    if(!$(document).data("mPS2id")){
      console.log("Error: 'Page scroll to id' plugin not present or activated. Please run the code after plugin is loaded.");
      return;
    }

    $(document).data("mPS2idExtend",{
      selector:"._mPS2id-h",
      currentSelector:function(){
        return this.index($(".mPS2id-highlight-first").length ? $(".mPS2id-highlight-first") : $(".mPS2id-highlight"));
      },
      input:{y:null,x:null},
      i:null,
      time:null
    }).on("scrollSection",function(e,dlt,i){
      var d=$(this).data("mPS2idExtend"),
        sel=$(d.selector);
      if(!$("html,body").is(":animated")){
        if(!i) i=d.currentSelector.call(sel);
        if(!(i===0 && dlt>0) && !(i===sel.length-1 && dlt<0)) sel.eq(i-dlt).trigger("click.mPS2id");
      }
    }).on("mousewheel DOMMouseScroll",function(e){ //mousewheel
      if($($(this).data("mPS2idExtend").selector).length) e.preventDefault();
      $(this).trigger("scrollSection",((e.originalEvent.detail<0 || e.originalEvent.wheelDelta>0) ? 1 : -1));
    }).on("keydown",function(e){ //keyboard
      var code=e.keyCode ? e.keyCode : e.which,
        keys=$(this).data("mPS2id").layout==="horizontal" ? [37,39] : [38,40];
      if(code===keys[0] || code===keys[1]){
        if($($(this).data("mPS2idExtend").selector).length) e.preventDefault();
        $(this).trigger("scrollSection",(code===keys[0] ? 1 : -1));
      }
    }).on("pointerdown touchstart",function(e){ //touch (optional)
      var o=e.originalEvent,
        d=$(this).data("mPS2idExtend");
      if(o.pointerType==="touch" || e.type==="touchstart"){
        var y=o.screenY || o.changedTouches[0].screenY;
        d.input.y=y;
        if($(this).data("mPS2id").layout==="horizontal"){
          var x=o.screenX || o.changedTouches[0].screenX;
          d.input.x=x;
        }
        d.time=o.timeStamp;
        d.i=d.currentSelector.call($(d.selector));
      }
    }).on("touchmove",function(e){
      if($("html,body").is(":animated")) e.preventDefault();
    }).on("pointerup touchend",function(e){
      var o=e.originalEvent;
      if(o.pointerType==="touch" || e.type==="touchend"){
        var y=o.screenY || o.changedTouches[0].screenY,
          d=$(this).data("mPS2idExtend"),
          diff=d.input.y-y,
          time=o.timeStamp-d.time,
          i=d.currentSelector.call($(d.selector));
        if($(this).data("mPS2id").layout==="horizontal"){
          var x=o.screenX || o.changedTouches[0].screenX,
            diff=d.input.x-x;
        }
        if(Math.abs(diff)<2) return;
        var _switch=function(){
            return time<200 && i===d.i;
          };
        $(this).trigger("scrollSection",[(diff>0 && _switch() ? -1 : diff<0 && _switch() ? 1 : 0),(_switch() ? d.i : i)]);
      }
    });

  });
})(jQuery);

You should also add the following rule to your stylesheet:

body{ -ms-touch-action: none; touch-action: none; }

Please note that using such functionality with touch devices can be (very) tricky and might not work exactly the same across all devices, browsers etc. A good way would be to keep such behavior for mouse and keyboard and let touch devices scroll the page normally.

Auto-generating aside bullet indicators (optional)

If you see the script demo, in addition to the main navigation menu, you’ll notice few bullets at the right which act as links and visual indicators of the sections. You can create those by hand or you can use a small function like this:

$("body").append("<div id='sections-bullets' />").find($(document).data("mPS2idExtend").selector).each(function(){
  $("#sections-bullets").append("<a href='"+$(this).attr("href")+"' class='section-bullet' rel='m_PageScroll2id'></a>");
});

This should be placed within the window load function:

(function($){
  $(window).on("load",function(){

    //the script above goes here code...

    //still inside window load we add the function that auto-generates the bullets 
    $("body").append("<div id='sections-bullets' />").find($(document).data("mPS2idExtend").selector).each(function(){
      $("#sections-bullets").append("<a href='"+$(this).attr("href")+"' class='section-bullet' rel='m_PageScroll2id'></a>");
    });

  });
})(jQuery);

If you need help or the code customized for some specific layout let me know in the comments or contact me.

 

Event based jQuery element resize

The script does not use any kind of timer(s) to detect size changes. It uses the resize event on (invincible) iframe(s) which makes it perform much better than other solutions which use timers to poll element size. The script detects size changes made from JS, CSS, animations etc. and it works on any element able to contain other elements (e.g. div, p, li etc.).

Page scroll to id

Page scroll to id is an easy-to-use jQuery plugin that enables animated page scrolling to specific id within the document. The plugin replaces the default browser behaviour of “jumping” to page sections when links with href value containing hash (#) are clicked, by smoothly animating the page to those sections. You can use it for simple back-to-top links or complex, single-page website navigation and features include: adjustable animation speed, advanced animation easings, vertical and/or horizontal scrolling, ready-to-use classes for links highlighting etc.
