MDN link. Do not leave space for the element. Instead, position it at a specified position relative to the screen's viewport and doesn't move when scrolled. When printing, position it at that fixed position on every page. No it's impossible because fixed property throws the element out of the flow so it doesn't depend to anything on the document and yes it is no more contained in your container :.
Yes, you can do it, just use margin-top property instead of top property. When you use position: fixed and specify a top and or left position, you'll find that the element will be fixed relative to the window, and not to any other element of position: relative. There is a way around this and that is not to specify top and left positions but instead to use margin-left and margin-top on the position: fixed element.
If you only use top that will position the element based on the window, but if you use margin-top that will position based on the parent element. Same goes for left or right. If we apply the Left or right value or marginwe may face some issue while responsive.
In the below snippet, I have placed the fixed element at the right of the container. Here is the jsfiddle Demo URL.
If you are looking to show the cart even when the user scrolls that is fixed then you should use position:fixed for the cart if. Your current code will only show the element which is positioned absolutely inside the container.

Presumably the homepage you see when you launch Chrome on Android?
OH: I'm a mobile web developer, so I basically spend all day getting requests for content to stick to the top after some scrolling. Little choppy, but the idea is there:. All we do is think of and design for the two different possible states:. We toggle between them simply by changing a class name. There is no trickery with having two search forms that reveal themselves in different scenarios.
Note that this demo relies on fixed positioning, which has a sketchy history on mobile. Some reading:. There are a lot of magic numbers in this demo. Anytime you are setting heights there should be some warning flags happening up in your brain.
Perhaps some version of using waypoints or the concept of it could make a more bulletproof system. Frontend Masters is the best place to get it. On iOS 7 and less yep, the event is only triggered at the end of the scroll. Not on Chrome for Android, and not on iOS 8 have to test for the last one. Remy has a couple of good functions for debouncing and throttlingthe latter is useful for resizing for example.
Code Review Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for peer programmer code reviews. It only takes a minute to sign up. I know sticky positioning does exaclty that but I can't use it because of poor browser support.
So I made this snippet and would like to know if it can be optimized or shortened :. This is not really a full answer yet, but after correcting my interpretation of your question as reflected by comments under it I keep having some incertainties, and a comment is not wide enough to clearly express them.
Operation : depending on the window size, the initial state may not follow your requirements, e. Additionally, each of those events should be initially fired although in practice only one is enough. Now let me explain what keeps puzzling me. Both snippets yours and mine have the following wrong behaviour: as of a certain window height couldn't precisely figure out yetonce switched to bottom the yellow span will never go back when scrolling up.
So before thinking further I'd want to be certain of what is precisely your need. Expressed independently from the current implementation, it seems to me that it is like follows:.

The yellow span must be verticaly centered in the viewport this rule is modified by rule 4. On scroll, the yellow span must never be outside the boundaries of the pink div.
If the page is scrolled further than the pink div, the yellow span must be absolutely positionned to the bottom of the pink div and scroll up with it If the page is scrolled back up to the pink div, the yellow span must go back to fixed position as in rule 1 and 2.

First the span location never changes when scrolling down, but it'd change if you keeped its position: fixed. When you scroll bac up, higher thant the bottom of the pink div, goes back to position:fixed here is a gif to demonstrate: i.

I am currently building a responsive website and need a menu to be fixed, thus not scrolling when the rest of the site scrolls. This question came first on Google although an old one so I'm posting the working answer I found, which can be of use to someone else. The issue you are having is a misunderstanding of positioning.
If you want it to be "fixed" relative to the parent, then you really want your fixed to be position:absolute which will update its position relative to the parent. This question fully describes positioning types and how to use them effectively.
Here's a js-fiddle with a working example. Play around with this jsfiddle. Check out this jsfiddle here where the fixed DIV is a sidebar. Test it with that Working Fiddle.

Works for me! Thank you! At least I had to add -webkit-transform: translate3d 0,0,0 ; to. This should be picked as the correct answer. Because it keeps fixed one divscrollable the other one and keeps the correct aspect ratio and order in the layoutcompletely responsive. Quite useful on pixel perfect projects. Kudos to Leo.
How TO - Sticky Element
Gavin, The issue you are having is a misunderstanding of positioning. Fuzzical Logic Fuzzical Logic I understand that but the problem is that i don't want the element to scroll. I tried using persentages for right positioning but it does not always stay in the correct area.
Then, positioning must be fixed, but if it is fixed, it cannot be positioned according to the parent. If you want the parent to scroll, but not the child, then you cannot position relative to the parent. Case 3, 3 3 gold badges 30 30 silver badges 47 47 bronze badges.The other week, I tried to use absolute positioning inside a container that had "overflow: auto" enabled. And, somewhat to my surprise, the absolutely-positioned elements were rendered relative to the overflow "viewport," not to the "natural bounding box" of the content.
This kind of threw me for a loop; and, it took me several days to come up with a solution. In retrospect, the solution is obvious.
But, I had some weird mental block that was holding me back. All I had to do was wrap the content in non-overflow container and use said container as the anchor for positioning.
To see what I mean, I've created a small demo in which I use the two approaches side-by-side. In the first approach, I'm using the overflow container as the position anchor. Then, in the second approach, I'm wrapping the content in an extra container in order to provide a non-overflow position anchor:. As you can see, the main difference between the two approach lies in where the "position: relative" style is applied.
In the first approach, the relative position is applied to the "overflow" container; and, in the second approach, it's being applied to the content wrapper. Now, when we run this code, we get the following output:. As you can see, in the first approach, the four corner boxes are positioned relative to the overflow viewport. And, in the second approach, the four corner boxes are positioned relative to the inner content wrapper, which creates a more "intuitive" bounding box for the content.
ASIDE : If you try the demo, you'll see that in the first approach the absolutely-positioned corner boxes scroll with the content. If you want the boxes to remain fixed in the corners, things get more complicated; especially in a context that may or may not present a scrollbar. When possible, you should avoid a user experience UX in which fixed elements overlap with scrollable content.
Aside from nav-bars, it's a difficult experience to get right. Looking back at this now, it seemed silly that this approach didn't occur to me immediately. But, at least I know now that I'll never forget it again. It's not that hard to create a more fixed position like experience but you will need to change your html.
If you can't move them for whatever reason, using js to move them for you is probably the simplest solution. Otherwise you would have to do things like detect scroll and update a"top" value on the fly which is way more prone to bugs and poor performance.Live Link. This also worked. This one.

An element with position: sticky; is positioned based on the user's scroll position. A sticky element toggles between relative and fixeddepending on the scroll position.
It is positioned relative until a given offset position is met in the viewport - then it "sticks" in place like position:fixed. Note: Internet Explorer, Edge 15 and earlier versions do not support sticky positioning. Safari requires a -webkit- prefix see example below. You must also specify at least one of toprightbottom or left for sticky positioning to work.
