How it works

Simple usage

Using by npm:

npm install vue-virtual-scroll-list --save
        <virtual-list :size="40" :remain="8">
            <item v-for="item of items" :key="item.id" />

    import item from '../item.vue'
    import virtualList from 'vue-virtual-scroll-list'

    export default {
        data () {
            return {
                items: [ {id: 1}, {id: 2}, {id: 3}, ... ]
        components: { item, 'virtual-list': virtualList }

Using by script include:

<script src="https://unpkg.com/vue@2.3.0/dist/vue.js"></script>
<script src="https://tangbc.github.io/vue-virtual-scroll-list/index.js"></script>

<div id="app">
    <virtual-list :size="40" :remain="8" wtag="ul">
        <li class="item" v-for="(udf, index) of items" :key="index">Item: # {{ index }}</li>
// Global name as `VirtualScrollList`
Vue.component('virtual-list', VirtualScrollList)

new Vue({
    el: '#app',
    data: {
        items: new Array(100000)


  • Must assign the :key property on <item> component or DOM frag with v-for directive.

  • Consider use box-sizing: border-box on <item> if you want absolutely correct scroll height.

Props type

Prop Type Required Description
size Number Each list item height, in variable height mode, this prop just use to calculate the virtual-list outside container viewport height.
remain Number How many items should be shown in virtual-list viewport, so size and remain determine the outside container viewport height (size × remian).
start Number * Default value is 0, the initial scroll start index. It must be integer and in the range of list index, if invalid there will be effected as 0 or the last one.
offset Number * Default value is 0, the initial scroll offset. If both start and offset are assigned at initialization, start is preferred.
bench Number * Default value is equal to remain, unreached items count, not show in virtual-list viewport but exist in real DOM, the larger the bench, the higher the scroll performance will achieved.
debounce Number * It's disabled by default, milliseconds of using debounce function to ensure scroll event doesn't fire so often that it bricks browser performance.
rtag String * Default value is div, the virtual-list root element tag name, in all cases it's style is set to display: block;
wtag String * Default value is div, the virtual-list item wrapper element tag name, in all cases it's style is set to display: block;
wclass String * Default value is an empty string, the virtual-list item wrapper element class, if assign this prop, you better not to change it's CSS box model.
totop Function * Called when virtual-list is scrolled to top, no param.
tobottom Function * Called when virtual-list is scrolled to bottom, no param.
onscroll Function * Called when virtual-list is scrolling, with param: (event, data).
variable Function or Boolean * For using virtual-list with variable height mode. If assign Function, this prop is a variable height getter function which is called with param: (index) when each item is ready to be calculated. If assign Boolean, virtual-list will get each item variable height by it's inline style height automatic.

About variable height

In variable height mode, prop size is still required. All the index variable height and scroll offset will be cached by virtual-list after the binary-search calculate, if you want to change anyone <item/> height from data, you should call virtual-list's updateVariable(index) method to clear the offset cache, refer to variable example source for detail.

If you are using variable assign by Boolean, do not set inline style height inside <item/> component, you must set inline style height on <item/> component outside directly, such as:

        <virtual-list :size="40" :remain="8" :variable="true">
            <item v-for="item of items" :key="item.id" :style="{ height: item.height + 'px' }" />
