How to Change Image Dynamically when User Scrolls using JavaScript ?
  • Last Updated : 31 Mar, 2021
GeeksforGeeks - Summer Carnival Banner

We are going to add the functionality to our web-page so that whenever the user scrolls up or scrolls down on the image, then the image changes. We have used only 3 images but it can easily be expanded for multiple images.
We are keeping the images on top of each other, this makes sure only one image is visible at a time. When we scroll, we decrement the z-coordinate of the current image and increments the z-coordinate of the new image. By doing this the new image overlays the old image and it comes on top of all images and becomes visible.
 

  • HTML Code: It is used to create a basic structure to include images. 
     

html




<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
 
<head>
    <meta charset="utf-8" />
    <title>
        Change Image Dynamically
        when User Scrolls
    </title>
</head>
 
<body>
<h1>GeeksforGeeks</h1>
<b>A Computer Science Portal for Geeks</b>
    <div id="scroll-image">
        <img src="CSS.png" class="test" />
        <img src="html.png" class="test" />
        <img src="php.png" class="test" />
    </div>
</body>
 
</html>                   
  • CSS Code: Css is used to desing the structure. The position property is the most important things here. It will make all the images to appear on top of each other.
     

html




<style>
    body {
        text-align: center;
    }
    h1 {
        color: green;
    }
    img {
        position: absolute;
        left: 300px;
    }
</style>
  • Javscript code: In this section we will add JavaScript code to perform the scrolling on the image.
     

javascript






<script>
    window.onload = function() {
  
        // Index of current image
        // which is on display
        var imageIndex = 0;
  
        // Object array of all the
        // images of class test
        var images =
            document.getElementsByClassName('test');
  
        // This tells us if mouse if over
        // image or not, We only change
        // image if mouse if over it
        var isMouseOverImage = false;
  
        // Object of parent element
        // containing all images
        var scrollImages =
            document.getElementById('scroll-image');
  
        // Stores the current scoll co-ordinates
        // so that the window don't scroll down
        // while scrolling the images
        var x, y;
  
        // This function sets the scroll to x, y
        function noScroll() {
            window.scrollTo(x, y);
        }
  
        // The following event id fired once when
        // We hover mouse over the images
        scrollImages.addEventListener(
                "mouseenter", function() {
  
            // We store the current page
            // offset to x,y
            x = window.pageXOffset;
            y = window.pageYOffset;
  
            // We add the following event to
            // window object, so if we scroll
            // down after mouse is over the
            // image we can avoid scrolling
            // the window
            window.addEventListener("scroll", noScroll);
             
            // We set isMouseOverImage to
            // true, this means Mouse is
            // now over the image
            isMouseOverImage = true;
        });
  
        // The following function is fired
        // when mouse is no longer over
        // the images
        scrollImages.addEventListener(
                "mouseleave", function() {
  
            // We set isMouseOverImage to
            // false, this means mouse is
            // not over the image
            isMouseOverImage = false;
  
            // We remove the event we previously
            // added because we are no longer
            // over the image, the scroll will
            // now scroll the window
            window.removeEventListener(
                        "scroll", noScroll);
        });
  
        // The following function is called
        // when we move mouse wheel over
        // the images
        scrollImages.addEventListener(
                    "wheel", function(e) {
                             
            // We check if we are over
            // image or not
            if (isMouseOverImage) {
                var nextImageIndex;
  
                // The following condition
                // finds the next image
                // index depending if we
                // scroll up or scroll down
                if (e.deltaY > 0)
                    nextImageIndex = (imageIndex + 1)
                                     % images.length;
                else
                    nextImageIndex =
                            (imageIndex - 1
                            + images.length)
                            % images.length;
  
                // We set the z index of current
                // image to 0
                images[imageIndex].style.zIndex = "0";
                     
                // We set the z index of next
                // image to 1, this makes
                // The new image appear on top
                // of old image
                images[nextImageIndex].style.zIndex = "1";
                imageIndex = nextImageIndex;
            }
        });
    }
</script>

Final Solution: In this section we will combine the above three section.

Output: 
 

Note: The above code will change image only if mouse if over the image.
