Window.scrollMaxY

Summary

Returns the maximum number of pixels that the document can be scrolled vertically.

Syntax

ypix = window.scrollMaxY
  • ypix is the number of pixels.

Example

// Scroll to the bottom of the page
var maxY = window.scrollMaxY;

window.scrollTo(0,maxY);

Notes

Do not use this property to get the total document height, which is not equivalent to window.innerHeight + window.scrollMaxY, because window.innerHeight includes the width of any visible horizontal scrollbar, thus the result would exceed the total document height by the width of any visible horizontal scrollbar. Instead use document.body.scrollHeight. See also window.scrollMaxX and window.scrollTo.
