Scroll to the top of the page using JavaScript/jQuery?

572

I've a <button> on the page, when this button is pressed a hidden <div> is shown using jQuery.

How do I scroll to the top of the page using a JavaScript/jQuery command in that function? It is desirable even if the scroll bar instantly jumps to the top. I'm not looking for a smooth scrolling.

All of these suggestions work great for various situations. For those who find this page through a search, one can also give this a try. JQuery, no plug-in, scroll to element.

$('html, body').animate({
    scrollTop: $("#elementID").offset().top
}, 2000);

If you don't need the change to animate then you don't need to use any special plugins - I'd just use the native JavaScript window.scrollTo method -- passing in 0,0 will scroll the page to the top left instantly

window.scrollTo(x-coord, y-coord);

Parameters

  • x-coord is the pixel along the horizontal axis.
  • y-coord is the pixel along the vertical axis.

If you do want smooth scrolling, try something like this:

$("a[href='#top']").click(function() {
  $("html, body").animate({ scrollTop: 0 }, "slow");
  return false;
});

That will take any <a> tag whose href="#top" and make it smooth scroll to the top.
