Scroll Me Bro

A simple jQuery backed scroll arrester

Quickly block un-intentional background scrolling when certain elements are scrolled or touched. Un-intentional scrolling and bouncing can make an app's layout seem loose and sloppy.

The Test

Scrolling inside of this div with the mouse wheel or on a touch device should allow the content to freely scroll up and down.


Add the scroll lock to your page with one line of jQuery!

var noBroNo = new ScrollBlocker($('#noBroNo'));

Need to nest a scrollable element in one that is locked?

var nestedScrollingDiv = new NestedScroller($('#nested-scroll'));
