Augments native scroll functionality for custom, cross-browser styling.
Scrollbar sits on top of the scrollable content, taking up no space.
Scrolling is native; no underlying position movements via CSS transformations.
Shims pointer behaviors only when interacting with the controls, so keyboard controls are unaffected.
Supports Right to Left direction.
Install the component from your command line.
npm install @radix-ui/react-scroll-area
Import all parts and piece them together.
import * as ScrollArea from '@radix-ui/react-scroll-area';export default () => (<ScrollArea.Root><ScrollArea.Viewport /><ScrollArea.Scrollbar orientation="horizontal"><ScrollArea.Thumb /></ScrollArea.Scrollbar><ScrollArea.Scrollbar orientation="vertical"><ScrollArea.Thumb /></ScrollArea.Scrollbar><ScrollArea.Corner /></ScrollArea.Root>);
Contains all the parts of a scroll area.
The viewport area of the scroll area.
The vertical scrollbar. Add a second
Scrollbar with an
orientation prop to enable horizontal scrolling.
The thumb to be used in
The corner where both vertical and horizontal scrollbars meet.
In most cases, it's best to rely on native scrolling and work with the customization options available in CSS. When that isn't enough,
ScrollArea provides additional customizability while maintaining the browser's native scroll behavior (as well as accessibility features, like keyboard scrolling).
Scrolling via keyboard is supported by default because the component relies on native scrolling. Specific keyboard interactions may differ between platforms, so we do not specify them here or add specific event listeners to handle scrolling via key events.
