The ScrollView element allows an application to display content that is larger than the size of the application's window by letting users to scroll around using swiping gestures.

property Bool scrollable: true

If true scrolling is enabled, and if false scrolling is disabled.

If scrolling is disabled the ScrollView ignores all touch events.

property ScrollView.Orientation orientation: .HorizontalAndVertical

Sets the allowable scroll orientations.


Allow horizontal scrolling.


Allow vertical scrolling.


Allow both horizontal and vertical scrolling.

property Bool bounces: true

If true the scroll area bounces when it encounters a boundary of the content. Bouncing visually indicates that scrolling has reached the edge of the content. If false, scrolling stops immediately at the content boundary.

property Bool alwaysBounceX: false

property Bool alwaysBounceY: false

By default, ScrollView will only allow dragging when the content region is larger than the bounds of the ScrollView. For example, if the ScrollView's contentWidth is less than its width, horizontal dragging will be disabled.

If these properties are set to true, and the bounces property is also true, dragging will be allowed even when the content is smaller than the bounds of the ScrollView.

property Float contentX: 0

property Float contentY: 0

property Float contentWidth: 0

property Float contentHeight: 0

Explicitly defines the bounding rectangle of the content to scroll.

By default the ScrollView uses the bounding rectangle of its children, so setting these properties is usually not required. However, to override the default and provide a custom content rectangle, you can set the contentX, contentY, contentWidth and contentHeight properties manually.

Setting any one of these properties explicitly disables the automatic child rectangle logic. For example, if you set contentWidth explicitly, the contentHeight would be treated as 0 unless you also explicitly set it.

property ScrollView.ContentInsetAdjustmentStyle contentInsetAdjustmentStyle: .OrientationAxes




property ScrollView.IndicatorStyle indicatorStyle: .Default

Sets the appearance of the scroll indicators.


Do not show scroll indicators.


A light grey scroll indicator.


A darker grey scroll indicator.


A white scroll indicator.

property Bool paged: false

Enables or disables paging. When enabled, the ScrollView stops on multiples of the ScrollView's bounds when the user scrolls.

property Bool scrollsToTop: false

Controls whether the scroll-to-top gesture is enabled for this ScrollView.

The scroll-to-top gesture is a tap on the status bar on iOS devices. When a user makes this gesture, the system asks the ScrollView closest to the status bar with the scrollsToTop property set to scroll to the top.

On iPhone, the scroll-to-top gesture has no effect if there is more than one ScrollView on screen that has scrollsToTop set.

property Bool trackingread only

property Bool draggingread only

property Bool deceleratingread only

Together the tracking, dragging and decelerating properties allow you to track the interaction state of the ScrollView.

The tracking property is true whenever the user is touching the ScrollView. Tracking returns to false once the user releases the ScrollView, or the interaction is canceled for some other reason.

The dragging property is true when the ScrollView is being dragged by the user. Whenever dragging is true, tracking will also be true. Dragging returns to false once the user releases the ScrollView, or the interaction is canceled for some other reason.

The decelerating property is true whenever the ScrollView is animating. This may be because the user flicked the ScrollView, it is automatically scrolling back to a valid position, or the scrollToOffset() method has been called.

You can interact with the ScrollView below to see how the properties respond.

property Bool directionalLock: false

If false, scrolling is permitted in both horizontal and vertical directions. If true and the user begins dragging in one general direction (horizontally or vertically), the scroll area disables scrolling in the other direction. If the drag direction is diagonal, then scrolling will not be locked and the user can drag in any direction until the drag completes.

property Float offsetXread only

property Float offsetYread only

These are read only properties that specify the current offset of the scroll area content.

property Bool fastDeceleration: false

If true the scroll area decelerates more quickly.

function ensureVisible(Item item[, ScrollView.EnsureVisibleStyle style])

function ensureVisible(Float x, Float y[, ScrollView.EnsureVisibleStyle style])

function ensureVisible(Float x, Float y, Float width, Float height[, ScrollView.EnsureVisibleStyle style])

Immediately move the ScrollView, if possible, so that the item or rectangle is within the visible area.



function jumpToOffset(Float offsetX, Float offsetY)

Jump immediately to the specified offset. If you would like to animate to an offset, use scrollToOffset() instead.

optional Bool clampToBounds: true

If clampToBounds is set, the offset is clamped to the ScrollView's valid range. Otherwise, the content offset can be set to a value outside the valid range and the ScrollView will then animate it back into range.

function scrollToOffset(Float offsetX, Float offsetY)

Animate the content area offset to specified value. If you would like to jump to an offset without animation, use jumpToOffset() instead.

function scrollToTop()

function scrollToBottom()

Animate the content area to the top or bottom.

function stopScrolling()

Immediately stop any scrolling.
