scrollLeft property

Sets or retrieves the distance between the left edge of the object and the leftmost portion of the content currently visible in the window.

Syntax

JavaScript

p = object.scrollLeft

 

Property values

Type: Integer

the distance, in pixels.

0

Default value.

Remarks

This property's value equals the current horizontal offset of the content within the scrollable range. Although you can set this property to any value, if you assign a value less than 0, the property is set to 0. If you assign a value greater than the maximum value, the property is set to the maximum value.

You can set this property inline, but the results might be inconsistent while the document loads.

This property is always 0 for objects that do not have scroll bars. For these objects, setting the property has no effect.

When a marquee object scrolls vertically, its scrollLeft property is set to 0, overriding any script setting.

For more information about how to access the dimension and location of elements on the page, see Measuring Element Dimension and Location with CSSOM in Internet Explorer 9.

Examples

This example uses the scrollLeft property to determine the amount scrolled by the object.


<div id=oDiv style="position:absolute; width:200px; 
    height:100px; overflow:scroll"                   
    onclick=alert(this.scrollLeft)>
    <span style="width:250px"> . . . </span>
</div>
