var observer = new IntersectionObserver(callback, options);
- A reference to a function that takes the following parameters:
- Options are as follows:
root: A specific ancestor of the target being observed. The default is the viewport.
rootMargin: An offset to apply to the root's bounding_box when calculating intersections, effectively shrinking or growing the root for calculation purposes. The default is "0px 0px 0px 0px".
threshold: An array of values where callback will be called. A threshold is a ratio of intersection area to bounding box area of an observed target. Thresholds can be any value between 0.0 and 1.0, inclusive.
