$w.Element, $w.HiddenCollapsedMixin

collapsed

Indicates if the element is collapsed or expanded.

Description

If collapsed is true, the element is not displayed on the page under any circumstances. A collapsed element, unlike a hidden element, does not take up any space on the page. When collapsed, elements positioned within 70 pixels below the collapsed element and each other move up to take the collapsed element's place where possible. The elements that move up maintain their positions relative to one another.

If collapsed is false, the element may be displayed on the page. Elements that moved up to take the collapsed element's place on the page are moved back down.

However, an expanded element (an element whose collapsed property is false) is still not displayed if:

Even if the element is not be displayed due to the conditions mentioned above, if its collapsed property is false, it's displayed when the conditions no longer apply.

To set the collapsed property on an element, use the element's collapse() and expand() functions.

If you select Collapsed on load in the element's Properties panel in the Editor, the collapsed property is set to true when the page loads.

$w.Element

Examples

Get whether an element is displayed on all pages

let isGlobal = $w("#myElement").global; // false

hidden

Indicates if the element is visible or hidden.

Description

If hidden is true, the element is not displayed on the page under any circumstances. A hidden element, unlike a collapsed element, continues to take up the same space on the page as it did when it was visible.

If hidden is false, the element may be displayed on the page.

However, an element whose hidden property is false is still not displayed if:

Even if the element is not displayed due to the conditions mentioned above, if its hidden property is set to false, it's displayed when the conditions no longer apply.

To determine if the element is actually visible, use the isVisible property.

To set the hidden property on an element, use the element's hide() or show() functions.

If you select Hidden on load in the element's Properties panel in the Editor, the hidden property is set to true when the page loads.

Note

An element's hidden property is not the same as its isVisible property. The hidden property indicates whether the element should be displayed, while isVisible indicates if it is actually displayed.

isVisible

Indicates if the element is actually visible.

Description

If isVisible is true, the element is displayed on the page.

If isVisible is false, the element is not displayed on the page.

The value of the isVisible property is calculated based on the hidden, collapsed, and rendered properties of the element and all of its ancestors. It is true only if the conditions exist in the element's property values and the property values of its ancestors such that the element is actually displayed on the page.

Note

An element's isVisible property is not the same as its hidden property. The isVisible property indicates whether the element is actually displayed, while hidden indicates if it should be displayed.

The isVisible property of an element remains true even if another element completely covers it so that a user cannot see it.

Adds an event handler that runs when an element is no longer displayed in the viewable part of the current window.

Description

An element leaves the viewport when the page is scrolled so that the element is completely out of view. An element also leaves the viewport if it was shown or expanded and is then hidden or collapsed from the viewable part of the current window. onViewportLeave() is not fired for hidden or collapsed elements even if they are scrolled out of view.

Note

Deprecation note: The $w parameter of event handlers is being deprecated. To get a scoped selector for working with elements in repeater items, use the $w.at() function and pass it the context property of the event parameter: $item = $w.at(event.context). To learn more, see here.

onViewportEnter( )

Syntax

function onViewportLeave(handler: EventHandler): Element
callback EventHandler(event: Event, $w: $w): void
PARAMETERS
?
Values that you pass to a function.
handler
function(event: Event, $w: $w)

The name of the function or the function expression to run when the element leaves the viewport.

?
Values that you pass to a function.
event
The event that occurred.
$w

Deprecated: A selector function. The $w function was used to enable event handlers to work with elements in repeaters. Now, to get a scoped selector for working with repeater items, use the $w.at() function and pass it the context property of the event parameter: $item = $w.at(event.context).

RETURN VALUE
?
Value that a function evaluates to when it is finished running.
The element on which the event is now registered.

MIXED IN FROM

?
Where this functionality is inherited from.
$w.Element

Examples

Get the ID of the element that has left the viewport

$w("#myElement").onViewportLeave( (event) => {
  let targetId = event.target.id; // "myElement"
});

pause( )

Pauses playback.

Description

The pause() function pauses the current video and fires a pause event.

The pause event handlers set on the vido player by the onPause( ) function or in the Editor are called.

Syntax

function pause(): Promise<void>
RETURN VALUE
?
Value that a function evaluates to when it is finished running.
Promise<void>
Fulfilled - When playback has been paused.

Examples

Pause playback

$w("#myVideoPlayer").pause();

Pause playback and log a message when done

$w("#myVideoPlayer").pause()
  .then( () => {
    console.log("Done with pause");
  } );

play( )

Begins or resumes playback.

Description

The play() function plays the current video and fires a play event.

The play event handlers set on the video player by the onPlay( ) function or in the Editor are called.

Syntax

function play(): Promise<void>
RETURN VALUE
?

Promise<void>
Fulfilled - When playback begins or resumes.

Examples

Begin or resume playback

$w("#myVideoPlayer").play();

Begin or resume playback and log a message when done

$w("#myVideoPlayer").play()
  .then( () => {
    console.log("Done with play");
  } );

scrollTo( )

Scrolls the page to the element using an animation.

Description

The scrollTo() function returns a Promise that is resolved when the animated scroll is complete and the element is now in view.

To scroll to a specific location on the page, see the wix-window scrollTo() function.

Calling the scrollTo() function on an element in a repeated item that is selected from the global scope causes an error.

Syntax

function scrollTo(): Promise<void>
RETURN VALUE
?
Value that a function evaluates to when it is finished running.
Promise<void>
Fulfilled - When the scroll is complete.

MIXED IN FROM

?
Where this functionality is inherited from.
$w.Element

Examples

Scroll the page to an element

$w("#myElement").scrollTo();

Scroll the page to an element and log message when done

$w("#myElement").scrollTo()
  .then( ( ) => {
    console.log("Done with scroll");
} );

seek( )

Moves playback to the specified time, in seconds.

Syntax

function seek(): Promise<void>

Promise<void>
Fulfilled - When the playback has been moved to the specified time.

Examples

$w("#myVideoPlayer").seek(102);

Move playback and log a message when done

$w("#myVideoPlayer").seek(102)
  .then( () => {
    console.log("Done with seek");
  } );

show( )

Shows the element and sets its hidden property to false, using an effect if specified.

Description

The show() function shows the element and returns a Promise that is resolved when the effect is complete and the element's hidden property has been set to false.

You can optionally apply an effect when showing the element by providing an effectName value. You can also customize the effect by providing the optional effectOptions object.
