jQuery & CSS - How to stop a relative element from floating left and right (when you're scrolling)?

Tags: jquery,css,jquery-selectors

Problem :

I'm sorry for posting this for a second time but I need a jQuery solution. The original solution doesn't work in Chrome but works on the jsFiddle site (even when opened in Chrome).

Here are the details again: I have a parent div with a fixed position and inside of that div I have the main div with a relative position. While I scroll the bar up and down it follows me (this I want) but I don't want it to follow me when I scroll the bar left to right (or right to left).


<div id="wrapper">
   <div id="icons">


#wrapper {
    position: fixed;
    z-index: 1000;
    top: 155px;
#icons  {
    width: 42px;
    position: relative;
    left: -67px;


    var initSL = $(window).scrollLeft();
var initOL = $('#wrapper').offset().left;

$(window).scroll(function () { 
      $('#wrapper').css('left', initOL - ($(window).scrollLeft() - initSL));

Thank you once again!!

Solution :

try this:

    $('#wrapper').css('left', initOL - ($(document).scrollLeft() - initSL + ' px'));

The jQuery .css function sets the css values as strings.

The scroll values you retreive from $(document).scrollLeft() are in pixels.
