MDN’s new design is in Beta! A sneak peek:


This feature is non-standard and is not on a standards track. Do not use it on production sites facing the Web: it will not work for every user. There may also be large incompatibilities between implementations and the behavior may change in the future.

The Element.scrollTopMax read-only property returns a Number representing the maximum top scroll offset possible for the element.


var pxl = elt.scrollTopMax;


This property is not part of any specification.
