How to Create a Toggle Scroll Feature with jQuery?

Estimated read time 3 min read

To create a toggle scroll feature with jQuery, you can follow these steps:

  1. Create an HTML file with a container for the content you want to toggle scroll on and off.
  2. Add CSS to style the container and set the initial state of the toggle scroll feature.
  3. Write the jQuery code to toggle scroll on and off when a button is clicked.

Here’s an example code that demonstrates how to create a toggle scroll feature with jQuery:


<!DOCTYPE html>
  <title>Toggle Scroll Feature</title>
  <script src=""></script>
    #container {
      height: 500px;
      overflow-y: scroll;
    } {
      overflow-y: hidden;
    p {
      margin: 20px;
      font-size: 16px;
      line-height: 1.5;
    button {
      margin: 20px;
      padding: 10px;
      background-color: #007bff;
      color: #fff;
      border: none;
      border-radius: 5px;
      cursor: pointer;
  <div id="container">
    <p>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Suspendisse commodo, neque ac hendrerit venenatis, mauris sapien luctus velit, non efficitur nulla mauris sed massa. Sed in nisi non dolor volutpat interdum vel a massa. Morbi vitae turpis malesuada, fermentum velit at, congue sem. Fusce eleifend commodo ipsum, a commodo sapien aliquet ac. Aliquam erat volutpat. Curabitur tristique, elit in scelerisque commodo, est nulla suscipit mauris, a fringilla massa eros vel turpis. Suspendisse potenti. Suspendisse potenti. Nullam aliquet, dolor at consequat dignissim, nibh sapien tincidunt nisi, vel consectetur sapien metus quis turpis. Sed eget metus ac lectus luctus dignissim. Etiam malesuada lectus eget tortor vulputate tristique. Fusce imperdiet sapien a sapien rhoncus malesuada.</p>
  <button id="toggle-scroll">Toggle Scroll</button>


$(document).ready(function() {
  var $container = $('#container');

  $('#toggle-scroll').click(function() {


The JavaScript code sets a click event listener on a button element. When the button is clicked, the toggleScroll function is called. The toggleScroll function toggles the “no-scroll” class on and off the container element.

The $container variable gets the container element. The $(‘#container’) selector selects the element with the id “container”. The $() function creates a jQuery object from the selected element, which allows us to call jQuery methods on the element.

The CSS selector selects the container element with the “no-scroll” class and hides its vertical scrollbar by setting its overflow-y property to hidden. When the “no-scroll” class is removed from the container element, the vertical scrollbar is shown again by setting its overflow-y property to scroll.

You can customize the CSS and JavaScript code to create different types of toggle scroll features. For example, you can add animations to the toggle scroll feature or add a horizontal scrollbar instead of a vertical scrollbar.
