JS: Highlight current menu item on fixed nav as user scrolls
// Highlight current page menu item as user scrolls
var lastId,
pageMenu = $(".nav"),
pageMenuHeight = pageMenu.outerHeight() + 126,
// All list items
menuItems = pageMenu.find("a"),
// Anchors corresponding to menu items
scrollItems = menuItems.map(function(){
var item = $($(this).attr("href"));
if (item.length) { return item; }
});
// Bind to scroll
$(window).scroll(function(){
// Get container scroll position
var fromTop = $(this).scrollTop()+pageMenuHeight;
// Get id of current scroll item
var cur = scrollItems.map(function(){
if ($(this).offset().top < fromTop)
return this;
});
// Get the id of the current element
cur = cur[cur.length-1];
var id = cur && cur.length ? cur[0].id : "";
if (lastId !== id) {
lastId = id;
// Set/remove active class
menuItems
.parent().removeClass("active")
.end().filter("[href=#"+id+"]").parent().addClass("active");
}
});
