Last Modified: 2016-11-17
I have created this jsfiddle with a floating back to to top button.
At the bottom of the page is a footer with 5 headings.
I want to be able to make the button be in a fixed position until reaching footer after which it goes up.
I am trying to imitate the functionality of back to top button at http://www.sony.com/all-electronics
I am terrible at jquery and javascript so please don't change the jquery already present in the jsfiddle
Rather add more below to make it do what I want.
Any help much appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

you just need to detect when the footer element comes into view and make the floating "UP" fixed

Added to your backToTop function
var _height = scrollTop + window.innerHeight;
            if (_height > $('footer').offset().top) {
            	$('#back-to-top').addClass('fixed');
            }
            else {
            $('#back-to-top').removeClass('fixed');
            }

Open in new window

CSS
#back-to-top.fixed {
  position: relative;
  float: right;
}

Open in new window
