Scrollspy

Trigger events and animations while scrolling your page.

Usage

The Scrollspy component listens to page scrolling and trigger events based on the scroll position. For example, if you scroll down a page, and an element appears in the viewport for the first time, you can trigger a smooth animation to fade in the element. Just add the uk-scrollspy attribute which takes the following options.

Typically, classes from the Animation component are used together with the Scrollspy component.

<div uk-scrollspy="cls:uk-animation-fade"></div>
  • <div class="uk-child-width-1-2@m uk-grid-match" uk-grid>
        <div>
            <div class="uk-card uk-card-default uk-card-body" uk-scrollspy="cls: uk-animation-slide-left; repeat: true">
                <h3 class="uk-card-title">Left</h3>
                <p>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit.</p>
            </div>
        </div>
        <div>
            <div class="uk-card uk-card-default uk-card-body" uk-scrollspy="cls: uk-animation-slide-right; repeat: true">
                <h3 class="uk-card-title">Right</h3>
                <p>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit.</p>
            </div>
        </div>
    </div>

This example uses the repeat: true option. Scroll up and down to see the triggered animations. The layout is made with the Card component.


Groups

You can also group scrollspy elements, so you won't have to apply the attribute to each of them. Just add the uk-scrollspy="target: SELECTOR" attribute to a container element, targeting the selector of the items you want to animate inside the container. When using a delay, it will be applied cumulatively to the items that scroll into view.

<div uk-scrollspy="target: > div; cls: uk-animation-fade; delay: 500">
    <div></div>
    <div></div>
</div>
  • <div class="uk-child-width-1-3@m" uk-grid uk-scrollspy="cls: uk-animation-fade; target: .uk-card; delay: 500; repeat: true">
        <div>
            <div class="uk-card uk-card-default uk-card-body">
                <h3 class="uk-card-title">Fade</h3>
                <p>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit.</p>
            </div>
        </div>
        <div>
            <div class="uk-card uk-card-default uk-card-body">
                <h3 class="uk-card-title">Fade</h3>
                <p>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit.</p>
            </div>
        </div>
        <div>
            <div class="uk-card uk-card-default uk-card-body">
                <h3 class="uk-card-title">Fade</h3>
                <p>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit.</p>
            </div>
        </div>
        <div>
            <div class="uk-card uk-card-default uk-card-body">
                <h3 class="uk-card-title">Fade</h3>
                <p>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit.</p>
            </div>
        </div>
        <div>
            <div class="uk-card uk-card-default uk-card-body">
                <h3 class="uk-card-title">Fade</h3>
                <p>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit.</p>
            </div>
        </div>
        <div>
            <div class="uk-card uk-card-default uk-card-body">
                <h3 class="uk-card-title">Fade</h3>
                <p>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit.</p>
            </div>
        </div>
    </div>

Set cls option per target

You can also give each target a separate cls option. Just add the uk-scrollspy-class="CLASS" attribute to a target element. It will override the cls option set on the component.

<div uk-scrollspy="target: > div; cls: uk-animation-fade; delay: 500">
    <div uk-scrollspy-class="uk-animation-slide-top"></div>
    <div uk-scrollspy-class="uk-animation-slide-bottom"></div>
</div>
  • <div class="uk-child-width-1-3@m" uk-grid uk-scrollspy="cls: uk-animation-slide-bottom; target: .uk-card; delay: 300; repeat: true">
        <div>
            <div class="uk-card uk-card-default uk-card-body">
                <h3 class="uk-card-title">Bottom</h3>
                <p>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit.</p>
            </div>
        </div>
        <div>
            <div class="uk-card uk-card-default uk-card-body" uk-scrollspy-class="uk-animation-slide-top">
                <h3 class="uk-card-title">Top</h3>
                <p>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit.</p>
            </div>
        </div>
        <div>
            <div class="uk-card uk-card-default uk-card-body">
                <h3 class="uk-card-title">Bottom</h3>
                <p>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit.</p>
            </div>
        </div>
    </div>

    <li><a href=""></a></li>
</ul>
