Prototype - scrollTo() Method


Advertisements


This method scrolls the window so that element appears at the top of the viewport.

This has a similar effect than what would be achieved using HTML anchors (except the browser's history is not modified).

Syntax

element.scrollTo();

Return Value

Returns an HTML element.

Example

<html>
   <head>
      <title>Prototype examples</title>
      <script type = "text/javascript" src = "/javascript/prototype.js"></script>
      
      <script>
         function showResult() {
            $('heading').scrollTo();
         }
      </script>
   </head>

   <body">
      <h1 id = "heading">This is the heading.</h1>
      <p id = "test">Click the button see the result.</p>
      <p id = "test">Click the button see the result.</p>
      <p id = "test">Click the button see the result.</p>
      <p id = "test">Click the button see the result.</p>
