Scrolling div

    Can we scroll any div using percentage instead px?

    Thanks in advance!

    My first question would be why you want to do this — in which context do you need this to work?

    As a rough answer, first of all, you definitely can’t do this in CSS. The way in Javascript would be to do something like this:

    var percent = .2;
    var div = document.getElementById(“div”);
    div.scrollTop = percent * (div.scrollHeight-div.clientHeight);
