Visible Element

NPM

For browsers only. Has two methods that allow you to detect if an element is visible to the user.

NOTE: a DOM library (like jQuery) is required for one of the methods

Install

npm install visible-element

Usage

var $ = require('jquery')
  , visible = require('visible-element')($)
 
visible.inViewport($('#visible')) // → true
visible.inViewport($('#hidden')) // → false
 
// requires a DOM library
// the parent arg is optional, it'll default to $el.parent()
// this method is useful for parents that have `overflow: scroll`
visible.inContainer($('#visible'), $('#parent')) // → true
visible.inContainer($('#hidden'), $('#parent')) // → true

Methods

Initialization

The library must first be initialized before use.

var visibleElement = require('visible-element')
  , visible = visibleElement()
 
visible.inViewport(document.getElementById('my-element'))

Or, you can initialize with a DOM library (like jQuery).

var visibleElement = require('visible-element')
  , $ = require('jquery')
  , visible = visibleElement($)
 
visible.inViewport($('my-element'))
// you can then also use
visible.inContainer($('my-element'), $('my-scrolling-container'))

inViewport(<DOMNode || jqueryEl> el)

Checks if the element is visible in the entire viewport. Returns a boolean. Accepts a jQuery-style wrapped DOM element or a raw element.

Does not require a DOM library.

inContainer(<jqueryEl> el[, <jqueryEl> parent])

Checks if an element is visible in a container. This is especially useful if the parent has overflow: hidden or overflow: scroll on it.

Returns a boolean. Accepts an element as the first argument. An optional second argument defines the parent container. If not passed, it will default to the immediate parent of the element.

Requires initialization with a DOM library.
