jquery-asScrollbar requires the latest version of jQuery and jquery-mousewheel if we need mouse wheel support.


Including files:

<link rel="stylesheet" href="/path/to/asScrollbar.css">
<script src="/path/to/jquery.js"></script>
<script src="/path/to/jquery.mousewheel"></script>
<script src="/path/to/jquery-asScrollbar.js"></script>

Required HTML structure

<div class="example"></div>


All you need to do is call the plugin on the element:
jQuery(function($) {


There are some example usages that you can look at to get started. They can be found in the examples folder.


jquery-asScrollbar can accept an options object to alter the way it behaves. You can see the default options by call $.asScrollbar.setDefaults(). The structure of an options object is as follows:
  namespace: 'asScrollbar',

  skin: null,
  handleSelector: null,
  handleTemplate: '<div class="{{handle}}"></div>',

  barClass: null,
  handleClass: null,

  disabledClass: 'is-disabled',
  draggingClass: 'is-dragging',
  hoveringClass: 'is-hovering',

  direction: 'vertical',

  barLength: null,
  handleLength: null,

  minHandleLength: 30,
  maxHandleLength: null,

  mouseDrag: true,
  touchDrag: true,
  pointerDrag: true,
  clickMove: true,
  clickMoveStep: 0.3, // 0 - 1
  mousewheel: true,
  mousewheelSpeed: 50,

  keyboard: true,

  useCssTransforms3d: true,
  useCssTransforms: true,
  useCssTransitions: true,

  duration: '500',
  easing: 'ease' // linear, ease-in, ease-out, ease-in-out


Methods are called on asScrollbar instances through the asScrollbar method itself. You can also save the instances to variable for further use.
// call directly

// or
var api = $().data('asScrollbar');


Move the scrollbar handle to the position.
// move to 50px
$().asScrollbar('moveTo', '50');

// move to 50%
$().asScrollbar('moveTo', '50%');


Move the scrollbar handle by the size.
$().asScrollbar('moveBy', '10');
$().asScrollbar('moveBy', '10%');

$().asScrollbar('moveBy', '-10');
$().asScrollbar('moveBy', '-10%');


Enable the scrollbar functions.


Disable the scrollbar functions.


Destroy the scrollbar instance.


jquery-asScrollbar provides custom events for the plugin’s unique actions.
$('.the-element').on('asScrollbar::ready', function (e) {
  // on instance ready

Event | Description ------- | ----------- ready | Fires when the instance is ready for API use. enable | Fired when the enable instance method has been called. disable | Fired when the disable instance method has been called. destroy | Fires when an instance is destroyed.

No conflict

If you have to use other plugin with the same namespace, just call the $.asScrollbar.noConflict method to revert to it.
<script src="other-plugin.js"></script>
<script src="jquery-asScrollbar.js"></script>
  // Code that uses other plugin's "$().asScrollbar" can follow here.
