Implementing Smooth Scrolling in React

by Abdul Rawoof A R Updated: Jan 24, 2023

The smooth scrolling feature lets the user scroll through webpages smoothly while navigating them. Due to the irritating nature of standard scrolling for many users who must read lengthy web pages, this function has gained widespread usage. ReactJs provides us the facility to use smooth scroll along the webpages. 


For creating a Scroll bar, we can use the following: 

  • Navbar: This is a responsive navigation header. 
  • React-scroll: This library provides components used to create a scroll bar. 
  • scrollToTop: Allows the user to scroll to the top of the page till the topmost visible content. 
  • scrollToBottom: Allows the user to scroll the bar to the bottom of the page till the page ends. 
  • animateScroll: Allows you to animate the scrolling as you scroll up and down 
  • scrollIntoView: This method is the easiest way to scroll to an element in React. However, you must first obtain the DOM (Document Object Model) element ref through useRef or choose it directly from the DOM. 


Here is an example of how you can implement smooth scrolling in React for your application:

Code

In this solution we are using React library.

Instructions

Follow the steps carefully to get the output easily.

  1. Install the Node.js and React on your IDE(preferable Visual Studio Code).
  2. Create React Application using npx create-react-app foldername.
  3. cd foldername.
  4. Open the folder in IDE.
  5. Copy the code using "copy" button above and create a file in the name of A.js and B.js then paste the code as per in the demo given below and finally import A.js and B.js files in app.js file(refer demo for your reference).
  6. Open the terminal from IDE.
  7. npm start to run the file.


You can also refer this url 'DEMO' for getting the above output.

I hope you found this useful. I have added the link to dependent libraries, version information in the following sections.


I found this code snippet by searching for 'how to implement smooth scrolling in react' in kandi. You can try any such use case!

Environment Tested

I tested this solution in the following versions. Be mindful of changes when working with other versions.

  1. The solution is created in Visual Studio Code 1.73.1.
  2. The solution is tested on node v18.12.1 and npm v8.19.2.
  3. React version-18.2.0.


Using this solution, we are able to implement smooth scrolling in react with simple steps. This process also facilities an easy way to use, hassle-free method to create a hands-on working version of code which would help us to implement smooth scrolling in react.
