Mobile Chrome vh units fix
Check this fix too. It works really well in most cases.
If you ever used
vh units and tested your work on mobile Chrome (iOS and Android), you probably were annoyed by page jumping when you scroll.
As you probably know
vh units are based on the window height. When you scroll, Chrome's address bar disappears and chrome actually changes window height. Also triggers window resize event. So when it does happen it changes the value of
vh unit, making your elements resize, and page jump. On Android, keyboard toggle will do the same.
Demo and documentation are available here.
On load, it will get the element and set them fixed height in pixels, using this formula:
window height / 100 * given vh value
Library listens for the window
resize event, and only if both dimensions are changed (which on mobile means orientation has changed) it will recalculate and apply fixed height based on new window height. Please note that Android Chrome has a bug - when keyboard pops up, it triggers orientation change
Library will only do this if it detects Chrome on Android or iOS.
It accepts one parameter, which is an array of objects. Every object should have CSS selector and height in
vh units. All elements that match given selector will be fixed.
I have a React component already done in a another project, but I need to extract it, and pack it up as a separate
npm package for easier usage.
