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="https://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)");

      Right, yes. Here is how I set my one page site up. All my code, then this
      <link rel="stylesheet" href="assets/js/jquery.mCustomScrollbar.css" /> <script type="text/javascript" src="assets/js/jquery.mCustomScrollbar.concat.min.js"></script> <script> $(".content").mCustomScrollbar({ theme:"minimal-dark" }) </script>
      I have tried different things in the tag like
      (function($){ $(window).load(function(){ $(".content").mCustomScrollbar(); }); })(jQuery);
      but nothing works. I am using windows 10, edge browser now but a version of chrome to test.

        If your main element has a fixed width (e.g. 500px), maybe you can give your text wrapper element the same max-width value (e.g. max-width: 500px;)

      Hi,

      You can use the scrollTo method in your own script(s).
      For example, to scroll to top:
      $(selector).mCustomScrollbar("scrollTo","top");
      See “Plugin methods” section for more info and examples.

    hello there,

    thank you for your wonderful plugin, I used it and it works superfine but lately i tried to add a horizontal scrollbar with your script on an adapted wpshower Portra theme.http://portra.wpshower.com

    It wonยดt work. Vertical it does fine, when I fiddled around with overflowing content.

    But with the horizontal scrollbar I always get a wrong @element-style width, which hands over the wrong width to the body or main content.

    Does it have anything to do with the infinite scroll?
    Is there a possibility to solve this?

    thank you!

      You can disable the auto-update timers (updateOnContentResize and updateOnImageLoad) if you want, like this:

      advanced:{ updateOnContentResize: false, updateOnImageLoad: false }

      but you’ll then have to use the update method manually if/when needed.

    Hey there. I am using your plugin on a site that also uses a full page scroll plugin to pass to different sections. To make them work together on mobile i am trying to trigger a “next page” event on the callbacks of your plugin, but i noticed that they only start when the user has scrolled, and there is no callback for when a user who has reached either end of the scroll tries to scroll in that direction again (for example, if i reached the bottom of the scrollable element, if i try to scroll down again, it would trigger function X).

    Is there any workaround, or could you point me to the place in the code where i could add my own code to make it work? Thanks.

      I think it could be done (even by using the whileScrolling callback and mcs.topPct object to detect scrolling position) but I’d have to see your page and code to provide an exact solution. Can you send me a link or a test page?

        I don’t think the last comment went through, so i’m posting again.

        Thanks for replying. The site is at http://i2-4c.eu/beta

        I arrived to the same solution, of checking for the dragger position at the start and end of scrolling, and triggering the transition if they are the same (or really close to eachother) when the scrolling ends, but the callbacks don’t trigger. I tried using the whileScrolling, onScrollStart, onScroll. The problem is that the dragger has to move in order for them to trigger. If it’s already at either end of the dragger container and the user tries to scroll in the same direction again, the dragger doesn’t move, and they don’t trigger.

        I’m also pasting my code here so it’s easier to find.
        (function($){ var $restUp = 0; var $restDown = 0; var $ds = 0; $(window).load(function(){ $(".scrollable").mCustomScrollbar({ axis:"y", theme:"rounded-dots", fitToSection: true, callbacks:{ onScrollStart:function(){ $restUp=$( this ).find( '.mCSB_dragger' ).css('top'); }, onScroll:function(){ $restDown=$( this ).find( '.mCSB_dragger' ).css('top'); if((parseInt($restDown)-parseInt($restUp)<6) && (parseInt($restDown)-parseInt($restUp)>-6) && $restDown>'5px'){ $(this).focus(); var e = jQuery.Event("keydown"); e.which = 38; // # Some key code value $(this).val(String.fromCharCode(e.which)); $(this).trigger(e); alert('up'); $restDown=0; } if($restDown-$restUp<6 && parseInt($restDown)-parseInt($restUp)>-6 && $restDown>'5px'){ $(this).focus(); var e = jQuery.Event("keydown"); e.which = 40; // # Some key code value $(this).val(String.fromCharCode(e.which)); $(this).trigger(e); alert('down'); $restUp=0; } }, onTotalScrollOffset: 0, onTotalScrollBackOffset: 0, alwaysTriggerOffsets: true } }); }); })(jQuery);

          I see. I think that you need to use an additional (global) variable and move the code which triggers the transition out of onScroll callback.

          I’m posting a (very) simple example of your bits of code to get an idea what I mean:

          //add an additional variable to check scrolling state var $restUp = 0; var $restDown = 0; var $ds = 0; var $scrollState = 0; //in plugin callbacks: onScrollStart:function(){ //set $restUp (as you currently do) along with $scrollState $restUp=$( this ).find( '.mCSB_dragger' ).css('top'); $scrollState=1; }, onScroll:function(){ //set $restDown (as you currently do) along with $scrollState $restDown=$( this ).find( '.mCSB_dragger' ).css('top'); $scrollState=0; }, //move your transition code/function/event out of the callback, //so it doesn't need to be triggered by the scrollbar script... e.g.: function foo(){ if(!$scrollState){ //if scrollbar is idle do your thing (check $restDown, $restUp etc.)... } }

          I can’t be sure if this will work for you, as it depends on your other scripts, but just to get the general idea.

    Thanks for this amazing asset. I am trying to include this in my WordPress site and it works great.

    I just have one query. On a page with an ‘iframe’, just like the one you have included in the examples (iframe_example.html). If you open up that file in Chrome, the iframe scrolls when the mouse is over it. But when opening the same example in Firefox, the scrolling action stops as soon as the mouse comes over the iframe content. Can there be a fix to this? Looking forward to it.

      Hello,

      iframes are bit tricky to handle and I don’t think there’s a solution for the mouse-wheel to work when hovering over the iframe. What happens is Firefox prevents js events on cross-domain iframes. This is a javascript security feature and there’s not much you can do about it…

      Is the source of the iframe on a different domain than your WordPress site?

    When I enable the scroll buttons, both the top (up) and bottom (down) arrows cause the scroll to go down.

    Clicking and dragging the bar or using the mouse wheel allow me to go up, but clicking on the up arrow icon does not.

      I can’t answer about the php files (you’d have to ask the theme developer). Maybe there’s a setting in the theme to select a scrollbar theme(?)

      You can change the scrollbar theme in your wp theme CSS if you want (info) by copying the “light” theme and modifying its selector.

      I’d suggest though to ask the wp theme developer first, as there might be a setting to change/set the scrollbar theme easily via some setting/option.

    Hello and thanks for this custom scrollbar !

    It works well until you have some Telerik Kendo UI controls inside the panel where you need the scroll.
    I have a Kendo UI multiselector that it is rendered as a selector plus a div with a list with all the items from the model.
    The problem is that when I clicked the control in order to select an item, the scroller scrolls automatically to up and the div with the list appears in a wrong position.
    If I switch to the default browser scrollbar, when I clicked to the control, the div appears in the place that should and the browser did not scrolls the content automatically to top as this control.
    Did someone found the issue ? Do you have a solution for this ?

    Hi, love the script, but I have a small problem. While the script is loading the page displays the entire contents of the scroll area causing an awkward layout at the loading of the page. And it does this every time you go to the page, it doesn’t cache.

    Hi!
    Frist of all, I am not programist and I am a girl so we have 2 diesasters ๐Ÿ˜€

    I am creating website using Adobe Muse and little bit of Edge Animate. In this program I have ability to implement a html 5 code and js in head or body, but I dont have control where exactly this code will appear. And Muse itself generate quite shitty code.

    After big battle I managed to implement your js, but some troubles appeared.

    The most important thing is that paralax effent -which is very important to me- does not work.

    Besides that, scrollbar is covering behind objects. (Muse assign order by themselves)

    Here is example without your js:

    http://problem.bplaced.net/Piotrek/ScrollBar_malihu-custom-scrollbar-plugin_01_004%20-%20parallaxa%20test%20dzialania/bez_kodu/

    http://problem.bplaced.net/Piotrek/ScrollBar_malihu-custom-scrollbar-plugin_01_004%20-%20parallaxa%20test%20dzialania/z_kodem/

    Here is code, that I’m adding to website:
    http://codepen.io/SoqllooS/pen/bVGgMM

    As a graphic designer, congratulation on nice minimalistic js. If you want to make a money from it, consider making a widget for Adobe Muse, because there are no good widgets for scrollbar and smoothscrolling ๐Ÿ™‚

      Hi.

      You have
      $('#u195-4').registerPositionScrollEffect(...)
      stuffs in your code.
      $(‘#u195-4’) is an element identifier. It tells the browser when the page scrolls to that specific element some animation should happen. I believe the problem is that the scrollbar addon hides this. The content is inside a new box and the browser can’t detect the elements correct place? Isn’t there a parent element that you can assign for the registerPositionScrollEffect function to check against?

      Hello,

      Don’t worry, no disaster ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. The element’s “covering” scrollbar fix is easy. Just give the scrollbar a high z-index value in your CSS:

      body .mCSB_scrollTools{ z-index: 99; }

      2. Keeping the parallax effect is not really doable, as the parallax script in your page is made to work only with browser’s native (default) scrollbar (which is pretty standard for these scripts).

      There is a way to create parallax effect(s) with the custom scrollbar (using plugin’s callback functions) but it would require programming a more or less advanced script.

      No, you can do much more.

      You can do anything you want with the scrollTo method. Please see scrollTo method section for info regarding the position parameter value.

      The value can be anything, from pixels to js/jquery object. It can also be a function so there’s no limit to the value(s) you get.

      If you tell me what you’re trying to do, I’ll gladly help.

    but, i have encountered a problem when i used it.

    i hided the scrolled box and then, i turned it back to be shown.

    at that time, the position of scrolling was initialized.

    even though i used ‘updateOnContentResize:false’ option and updated manually, it worked the same.

    Hi,
    I’m having some trouble with using a custom scrollbar with XY axes in a flexbox.
    For some reason, adding a X-axis OR a Y-axis scrollbar to a flexbox is no problem. However, when adding both axes, the Y-axis shows, but all content of the flexbox is no longer visible (so I just get a blank flexbox with a Y-axis scrollbar).

    Here’s my javascript:
    (function($){ $(window).load(function(){ $("#pagecontent").mCustomScrollbar({ theme: "minimal-dark", scrollInertia: 300, axis: "yx", }); }); })(jQuery);

    Here’s the CSS for the “pagecontent” flexbox:
    #pagecontent { -webkit-box-flex: 1; -webkit-flex: 1; -ms-flex: 1; flex: 1; order 2; height: auto; overflow: auto; padding: 5px; }

    Anyone has an idea? Thanks!

      mCS_no_scrollbar class means plugin script detects that no scrolling is needed. Either the content is not long enough (longer than its container element) or the element itself does not have a height set.

    Hello Manos,

    I’ve been testing mCustomScrollbar since it can display a consistent look for a scrollbar on all the platforms. It seems to work well with touch too which is great but I can’t get it to work with Firefox on touch screens in the latest versions of Windows. Other browsers it’s working just fine with touch. Is it possible to configure for Firefox and touch?

      Plugin archive contains many examples with images, maybe you can check on and see if it helps(?)
      It sounds more like a CSS issue but I can’t help unless I see your page/code.

    Greetings,
    First of all, thank you very much for all this. Unfortunately, I’m having a little issue I’d like to ask you about. I’m trying to use the dark-3 theme but for some reason the only “theme” that shows is one in which the scrollbar is white and the rest is black.

    This is my code. The divs that are supposed to use the scrollbar use the class “content”.
    $(window).load(function(){ $(".content").mCustomScrollbar({ theme:"dark-3", axis: "y" }); });

    Thank you very much!

      Make sure you’re not initializing the default scrollbar via HTML. For example, you might have given the class name mCustomScrollbar to your element. In such case remove that class.

    Hi, is there way to detect scroll direction?

      You can use this.mcs.direction object in your callback functions. It returns “y” or “x”.

        Thanks for reply, I should’ve been more clear, I meant up or down direction by y axis

          Not really, although you might be able to do it via callbacks. Depending on what you’re trying to do there might be other simpler solutions…

      Yes, the code should work if there’s an element like:
      <a data-uid="234">...</a>
      in your content and you’ve initialized the scrollbar on .k-grid-content
