Javascript Layout Issue

Question

+Human.Online    8,693

Hi

 

I'm building a layout, and ignoring all the stuff about sizing for mobile and so on - I want to achieve something fairly specific.  When scrolling on large screens, the black "A title goes here" scrolls upwards until it sits under the menu and stops - that is working.

 

The sidebar similarly scrolls up until it sits under the menu and then stops.  But the footer could impact it, so when the footer reaches the bottom of the sidebar, it "pushes" it up, so the sidebar scrolls with the page again.

 

This is all working just fine, but awkwardly on line 283, I am having to add a specific offset value.  I know that if I change the height of any of the elements above the sidebar, the offset value needs to change.  But I can't work out how to derive what it should be, so that any sizing of Hero image will work, for example.

 

Sorry for the messy code, I will be tidying that up once this works.  Would anyone take a look?  Also, yeah I'd never put all my CSS and JS in with my HTML normally, it's just for ease of postings sake.

 

Hope @mrbestersees this - he's usually great with these thing...

 

Thanks

You might consider using jsfiddle or codepen, it's easier to look into the code for others.

Use position: sticky with a polyfill for old browsers, you shouldn't need these type of JavaScript driven things for modern browsers (Especially because it actually slows them down)

Cheers, I did consider it but my only issue is that jsFiddle takes up too much screen estate as to not sufficiently demonstrate the issue.

Not sure sticky will work here but can try...
