The ScrollSpy plugin is for automatically updating nav targets based on scroll position. Scroll the area below the navbar and watch the active class change. The dropdown sub items will be highlighted as well.

Usage

Requires Bootstrap nav

Scrollspy currently requires the use of a Bootstrap nav component for proper highlighting of active links.

Resolvable ID targets required

Navbar links must have resolvable id targets. For example, a <a href="#home">home</a> must correspond to something in the DOM like <div id="home"></div>.

Non-:visible target elements ignored

Target elements that are not :visible according to jQuery will be ignored and their corresponding nav items will never be highlighted.

Requires relative positioning

No matter the implementation method, scrollspy requires the use of position: relative; on the element you're spying on. In most cases this is the <body>. When scrollspying on elements other than the <body>, be sure to have a height set and overflow-y: scroll; applied.

Via data attributes

To easily add scrollspy behavior to your topbar navigation, add data-spy="scroll" to the element you want to spy on (most typically this would be the <body>). Then add the data-target attribute with the ID or class of the parent element of any Bootstrap .nav component.

Copy
body {
  position: relative;
}
Copy
<body data-spy="scroll" data-target="#navbar-example">
  ...
  <div id="navbar-example">
    <ul class="nav nav-tabs" role="tablist">
      ...
    </ul>
  </div>
  ...
</body>

Via JavaScript

After adding position: relative; in your CSS, call the scrollspy via JavaScript:

Copy
$('body').scrollspy({ target: '#navbar-example' })

Methods

.scrollspy('refresh')

When using scrollspy in conjunction with adding or removing of elements from the DOM, you'll need to call the refresh method like so:

Copy
$('[data-spy="scroll"]').each(function () {
  var $spy = $(this).scrollspy('refresh')
})

Options

Options can be passed via data attributes or JavaScript. For data attributes, append the option name to data-, as in data-offset="".

Name type default description
offset number 10 Pixels to offset from top when calculating position of scroll.

Events

Event Type Description
activate.bs.scrollspy This event fires whenever a new item becomes activated by the scrollspy.
Copy
$('#myScrollspy').on('activate.bs.scrollspy', function () {
  // do something…
})
