Szychowski: Cork we already established that.
Szychowski: There was some confusion about wtf was going on :
Eisenmenger: Yea, that’s why I’m using jQuery .scroll to listen and .scrollTop to grab the offset
Goldberger: Use waypoints if you cant figure it out yourself
Szychowski: Btw you want ot be careful with scroll event listeners.
Goldberger: Or what was that popular lib called
Eisenmenger: I use debounce to reduce the amount of times it runs the function robertmaxrees
Eisenmenger: It’s a function in underscore to prevent the function from running a billion times lol
Goldberger: Debounce just masks a badly performing function tho
Eisenmenger: If that wasn’t the most affirmative thing I’ve ever said on discussion I’ll be damned
Szychowski: I still default to using one.
Eisenmenger: I would too for scroll event, it might just be a badly performing function but that may be the best option as far as I can tell
Goldberger: I’m inclined to link my 6000 div lookup script
Szychowski: Why not fix the perf AND use a debounce? Shrug the world may never know.
Eisenmenger: I think I’ve seen this decx haha, I’ve been ‘roun these parts before
Eisenmenger: The performance? I was just going to use a low debounce
Goldberger: For posterity https://jsfiddle.net/decx/z95roz0r/2/
Eisenmenger: Hmm that’s not the one I saw a while back, you’ve done quite a few of these thousand element fiddles decx?
Eisenmenger: I used to remember you being a great help a couple of years ago when I was just starting on this journey towards jQuery enlightenment
Szychowski: True jquery enlightenment is know when to not use it.
Goldberger: I reached enlightenment with css
Goldberger: Box-shadow: 0 0 15px yellow
Eisenmenger: Yea absolutely robertmaxrees
Hank: Btw as a continuation, they are specing media queries for scroll position :
Goldberger: Just for above fold or active in viewport like my attempt
Goldberger: I remember hearing about it years ago
Eisenmenger: I didn’t reach enlightenment I just moved to back end ;-
Hosterman: Anyone know why .html is returning false?
Szychowski: Have an example of that happening?
Nachmias: Does closest return outside a span block as well?
Goldberger: Html never returns false specifically, it either returns a string or undefined
Cherchio: Yeah it is returning specifically undefined
Goldberger: Then your selector is wrong
Szychowski: Because you selector isn’t matching anything.
Szychowski: Undefined and false are different fwiw.
Szychowski: I’ll bet your .closest isn’t doing what you think it is.
Sevadjian: Szychowski: ill bet that as well
Kermes: Var test = $e.target.closest’div.grab_container’.html;
Zahri: Console.logtest = undefined
Eisenmenger: I’ll bet that as well
Lorent: Does that look correct?
Szychowski: I’d have to see your html.
Vallier: A cl***=”trigger” div cl***=”grab_container”/div
Szychowski: So the div is inside the a?
Szychowski: Closest searches ancestors
Boocock: A cl***=”trigger”/a div cl***=”grab_container”/div
Szychowski: You want a sibling of the link.
Szychowski: Yes, it goes through an element’s ancestors.
Vivas: How do i get the closest below?
Szychowski: Becuase that’s not what you want here.
