jQuery Plugin For Easy Scroll Depth Detection - Scroll Detection

Scroll Detection is a small jQuery plugin that tracks how far users are scrolling and triggers an event when the scroll depth reaches a target percentage.

How to use it:

1. Create a navigation bar that will appear when you have reached a certain scroll depth.

<div id="navigation">

2. Create a container for the percentage counter.

<div id="percentageCounter">0%</div>

3. Include the necessary jQuery library at the end of your document.

<script src="//ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.11.1/jquery.min.js"></script>

4. The Javascript to enable the plugin and custom the target percentage


// Change this to target a different percentage
var targetPercentage = 70;
// Change this to set the height of your nav bar so it hides properly. 
// If you have a box shadow you may have to adjust this number to be height + shadow distance
var navBarHeight = 66;
// Change this to the ID of the content you are trying to show.
var targetID = "#navigation";

//Window Math
var scrollTo = $(window).scrollTop(),
docHeight = $(document).height(),
windowHeight = $(window).height();
scrollPercent = (scrollTo / (docHeight-windowHeight)) * 100;
scrollPercent = scrollPercent.toFixed(1);

$('#percentageCounter h1').text(scrollPercent+"%");

if(scrollPercent > targetPercentage) {
$(targetID).css({ top: '0' });

if(scrollPercent < targetPercentage) {
$(targetID).css({ top: '-'+navBarHeight+'px' });
