This simple script scrolls the page to the top of the screen.  Whenever I drag the page down to the bottom it continues to scroll.  I need this script to just scroll up upon clicking the stop.  This just needs to work for one interval.  Let me know on any possible solutions.  Thanks you guys for youre help.


function pageScroll() {
          window.scrollBy(0,-50); // horizontal and vertical scroll increments
          scrolldelay = setTimeout('pageScroll()',5); // scrolls every 100 milliseconds
}

the setTimeout c\auses the function to be called every 100 miiliseconds if you want a one time scroll on an onclick then change it to

function pageScroll() {
          window.scrollTo(0,0);
}

and call, it as onClick="pageScroll()" or just onClick="window.scrollTo(0,0)"

Something like this maybe?

<html>
<head>
<script type="text/javascript">
<!--
var scroller;

function startScroll(){
      scroller = setInterval("scrollUp();", 5);
}

function stopScroll(){
      clearInterval(scroller);
}

function scrollUp(){
      window.scrollBy(0, -50);
}
//-->
</script>
</head>

Not exactly.  I found the function that stops the scrolling, however I have not got it to stop once it reaches the top of the page.  The function is clearTimeout(scrolldelay).

function pageScroll() {
          window.scrollBy(0,-50); // horizontal and vertical scroll increments
          scrolldelay = setTimeout('pageScroll()',100); // scrolls every 100 milliseconds
          if (window.scrollBy(0,0))
            clearTimeout(scrolldelay);
}

>>   if (window.scrollBy(0,0))
thid would assume that the second value would always hit 0, it could be anywhere from 0 to -49
and if it was between -1 and -49 this will not evalute to true
try using
document.body.scrollTop
if(document.body.scrollTop <=0)
clearTimeout(scrolldelay);

Sorry, I misunderstood your goal.  You need to query the pageYOffset property.  Try this:

<html>
<head>
<script type="text/javascript">
<!--
function scrollUp(){
      var offy;
      if(self.pageYOffset) {
            offy = self.pageYOffset;
      } else if(document.documentElement && document.documentElement.scrollTop){
            offy = document.documentElement.scrollTop;
      } else {
            offy = document.body.scrollTop;
      }

      if(offy <= 0) return;

      window.scrollBy(0, -50);
      setTimeout("scrollUp()", 500);
}
//-->
</script>
</head>

Actually, it is probably the question that is the problem.  Perhaps, I will try to reword the problem.  I have a multi form web application.  -->  http://banners.mediascape.com/

The third part, "Banner Specifications for ...", you click the tab on top and it brings the place in the form it refers too (the selected vehicle).  I need it to not only go to that place in the form but also to the top of the webpage.  After that I need to figure out how too make the tabs change depending on the click.  I figured javascript would be the best way to accomplish this task.  I am open for suggestions.  Please let me know so we can come to a resolution.  Thank you in advance for you help.
