# Overview

Use the Titanium.UI.createScrollView method or <ScrollView> Alloy element to create a scroll view.

Views added to the scroll view will be scrolled based on the size of the scrollable region of content. If a scrollable region fits within the size of its scroll view, the view will not scroll.

# Android Platform Notes

On Android, a scroll view can only scroll in one direction, either vertically or horizontally, and not both at the same time. The Titanium.UI.ScrollView.scrollType property sets the scroll direction explicitly. If the scrollType property is not assigned a value, the scroll view attempts to determine the scroll direction based on some the following rules:

Pinching a ScrollableView to zoom in and out of content is not supported on Android. On iOS, this action is natively supported by the UIScrollView class, but on Android, the native ScrollView class does not support this action.

# Examples

# Simple Scroll View

Create a scroll view with content.

var win = Ti.UI.createWindow({
  backgroundColor: 'white',
  exitOnClose: true,
  fullscreen: false,
  title: 'ScrollView Demo'
});

var scrollView = Ti.UI.createScrollView({
  showVerticalScrollIndicator: true,
  showHorizontalScrollIndicator: true,
  height: '80%',
  width: '80%'
});
var view = Ti.UI.createView({
  backgroundColor:'#336699',
  borderRadius: 10,
  top: 10,
  height: 2000,
  width: 1000
});
scrollView.add(view);
win.add(scrollView);
win.open();

# Scroll View as a Table View

Create a scroll view that contains a set of views in a layout to resemble a table view with rows. This approach can mitigate the native Android issue described in the "TextFields in Tables with SOFT_INPUT_ADJUST_PAN" section of Titanium.UI.TableView.

var win = Ti.UI.createWindow({
  backgroundColor:'white'
});

if (Ti.UI.Android){
  win.windowSoftInputMode = Ti.UI.Android.SOFT_INPUT_ADJUST_PAN;
}

function createRow(i) {
  var row = Ti.UI.createView({
    backgroundColor: 'white',
    borderColor: '#bbb',
    borderWidth: 1,
    width:'100%', height: 70,
    top: 0, left: 0
  });
  var inputTextField = Ti.UI.createTextField({
    hintText: 'Enter value ' + i,
    keyboardType: Ti.UI.KEYBOARD_NUMBERS_PUNCTUATION,
    top: 10, left: '10%',
    width: '80%', height: 60
  });
  row.add(inputTextField);
  return row;
}

var scrollView = Ti.UI.createScrollView({
  bottom:120,
  layout: 'vertical'
});

for(var i = 0; i <= 20; i++){
var row = createRow(i);
  scrollView.add(row);
}
win.add(scrollView);

var label = Ti.UI.createLabel({
  backgroundColor:'darkgray',
  text: 'Your advert here',
  textAlign: 'center',
  bottom:0,
  width: Titanium.UI.FILL,
  height:100
});
win.add(label);
win.open();

# Properties

# canCancelEvents

Availability
0.9
0.9
9.2.0
canCancelEvents :Boolean

Determines whether this scroll view can cancel subview touches in order to scroll instead.

On iOS, this property maps to the native canCancelContentTouches property which controls whether touches in the content view always lead to tracking. See UIScrollView for more details.

On Android, setting this property to false prevents the scroll view from intercepting any touch events from its subviews. Note that this behavior may be slightly different from iOS.

Default: true


# contentHeight

Availability
0.9
0.9
9.2.0
contentHeight :Number | String

Height of the scrollable region.

While absolute dimensions are supported, relative values, such as those provided in percentages, are not. The minimum value for contentHeight is the height of the scroll view. Measured in platform-specific units; pixels on Android, effective pixels on Windows and density-independent pixels (dip) on iOS.


# contentOffset

Availability
0.9
0.9
9.2.0
contentOffset :Point

X and Y coordinates to which to reposition the top-left point of the scrollable region.

On iOS, a new value causes the scroll view to perform an animated scroll to the new offset. The setContentOffset method can be used to prevent this animation.


# contentWidth

Availability
0.9
0.9
9.2.0
contentWidth :Number | String

Width of the scrollable region.

While absolute dimensions are supported, relative values, such as those provided in percentages, are not. The minimum value for contentWidth is the width of the scroll view. Measured in platform-specific units; pixels on Android, effective pixels on Windows and density-independent pixels (dip) on iOS.


# decelerationRate

Availability
3.2.3
9.2.0
decelerationRate :Number

The deceleration rate of the ScrollView.

Default: Undefined.


# disableBounce

Availability
0.9
9.2.0
disableBounce :Boolean

Determines whether scroll bounce of the scrollable region is enabled.

Set to true to disable horizontal and vertical bounce.

This property takes precedence over the horizontalBounce and verticalBounce properties.

Default: false


# horizontalBounce

Availability
0.9
9.2.0
horizontalBounce :Boolean

Determines whether horizontal scroll bounce of the scrollable region is enabled.

With the default value of true, dragging in the horizontal direction is always allowed and also bounces.

Set to false to disable horizontal scroll bounce if the horizontal content is smaller than the scroll view bounds. However, larger content will still bounce when scrolled.

Note that the disableBounce property takes precedence over the horizontalBounce and verticalBounce properties.

Default: true


# keyboardDismissMode

Availability
6.0.0
9.2.0
keyboardDismissMode :Number

The manner in which the keyboard is dismissed when a drag begins in the scroll view.

Default: Undefined (behaves like Titanium.UI.iOS.KEYBOARD_DISMISS_MODE_NONE)


# maxZoomScale

Availability
0.9
9.2.0
maxZoomScale :Number

Maximum scaling factor of the scrollable region and its content.

This value determines how large the content can be scaled. It must be greater than the minZoomScale for zooming to be enabled. The default value is 1.0 unless otherwise specified.

Note that specifying a value less than or equal to 0 will hide all contents of the scroll view.

Default: 1


# minZoomScale

Availability
0.9
9.2.0
minZoomScale :Number

Minimum scaling factor of the scrollable region and its content.

This value determines how small the content can be scaled. It must be less than the maxZoomScale for zooming to be enabled. The default value is 1.0 unless otherwise specified.

Default: 1


# overScrollMode

Availability
3.1.0
overScrollMode :Number

Determines the behavior when the user overscolls the view.

# refreshControl

Availability
6.3.0
6.0.0
9.2.0
refreshControl :Titanium.UI.RefreshControl

View positioned above the first row that is only revealed when the user drags the scroll view contents down.

An alternate to the pullView property. See Titanium.UI.RefreshControl for usage and examples. Since Titanium SDK 7.5.0, the RefreshControl API is also available on iOS < 10.


# scrollIndicatorStyle

Availability
0.9
9.2.0

Default: true


# scrollsToTop

Availability
2.0.0
9.2.0
scrollsToTop :Boolean

Controls whether the scroll-to-top gesture is effective.

The scroll-to-top gesture is a tap on the status bar; The default value of this property is true. This gesture works when you have a single visible scroll view. If there are multiple table views, web views, text areas, and/or scroll views visible, you will need to disable (set to false) on the above views that you don't want this behaviour on. The remaining view will then respond to scroll-to-top gesture.

Default: true


# scrollType CREATION ONLY

Availability
0.9
scrollType :String
