jQuery Scroll To bottom of the page

AnApprentice Source

After my page is done loading. I want jQUery to nicely scroll to the bottom of the page, animating quickly, not a snap/jolt.

Do iI need a plugin like ScrollTo for that? or is that built into jQuery some how?

You can just animate to scroll down the page by animating the scrollTop property, no plugin required, like this:

$(window).load(function() {
  $("html, body").animate({ scrollTop: $(document).height() }, 1000);

Note the use of window.onload (when images are loaded...which occupy height) rather than document.ready.

To be technically correct, you need to subtract the window's height, but the above works:

$("html, body").animate({ scrollTop: $(document).height()-$(window).height() });

To scroll to a particular ID, use its .scrollTop(), like this:

$("html, body").animate({ scrollTop: $("#myID").scrollTop() }, 1000);

something like this:

var $target = $('html,body'); 
$target.animate({scrollTop: $target.height()}, 1000);

Works for me. Scrolls to the bottom.

$('html,body').animate({ scrollTop: 9999 }, 'slow');

As simple as this , 9999 page height ... big range so it can reach to bottom .

Using 'document.body.clientHeight' you can get the seen height of the body elements

$('html, body').animate({
    scrollTop: $("#particularDivision").offset().top - document.body.clientHeight + $("#particularDivision").height()
}, 1000);

this scrolls at the id 'particularDivision'

var el = document.getElementById("el");
el.scrollTop = el.scrollHeight - el.scrollTop;

The scripts mentioned in previous answers, like:

$("body, html").animate({
    scrollTop: $(document).height()
}, 400)

will not work in Chrome and will be jumpy in Safari in case html tag in CSS has overflow: auto; property set. It took me nearly an hour to figure out.

$('#pagedwn').bind("click", function () {
        $('html, body').animate({ scrollTop:3031 },"fast");
        return false;

This solution worked for me. It is working in Page Scroll Down fastly.

You can try this

var scroll=$('#scroll');
scroll.animate({scrollTop: scroll.prop("scrollHeight")});

For jQuery 3, Please change

$(window).load(function() { $("html, body").animate({ scrollTop: $(document).height() }, 1000); })


$(window).on("load", function (e) { $("html, body").animate({ scrollTop: $(document).height() }, 1000); })
