Cross-browser scroll position

I am using jQuery to develop my application. I don't think that jQuery's scrollTop method is compatible with the OS 5 browser, where $(window).scrollTop() always returns 0 (at least, in navigation mode it does).


Is there a cross-bb-browser method of determining the scroll distance, in pixels, from the top of the page?

Re: Cross-browser scroll position

Yeah BB5 has a problem getting the scroll position.. but it can set the scrollTop.. I know.. Wierd...


You could try out an extension I made a while ago where you can subscribe to an event that will trigger when the scrolling stops that will give you the horizontal and vertical position
