Summary

Scrolls the window to a particular place in the document.

Syntax

window.scroll(x-coord, y-coord) 

Parameters

  • x-coord is the pixel along the horizontal axis of the document that you want displayed in the upper left.
  • y-coord is the pixel along the vertical axis of the document that you want displayed in the upper left.

Example

<!-- put the 100th vertical pixel at the top of the window -->

<button onClick="scroll(0, 100);">click to scroll down 100 pixels</button>

Notes

window.scrollTo is effectively the same as this method. For scrolling a particular distance repeatedly, use the window.scrollBy. Also see window.scrollByLines, window.scrollByPages.
