is not necessary to have this operation :
if ((scrollHeight - scrollPosition) / scrollHeight === 0) because it's mean that (scrollHeight - scrollPosition) === 0.
So it's better and simpler to write this :
if ( scrollHeight - scrollPosition === 0 ) { }
Because that' way you easily change your value limit like this
if( scrollHeight - scrollPosition < 20 ) { }
if you want somethings happen when the user is 20 pixels about to reach the page bottom.

For those who find that this script doesn't work, check this property in your HMTL file .. < !DOCTYPE html >. As I found out, this can cause the window and document to report the same value, which breaks this script. This happens specifically in Chrome. And, if the tag is present, but specifies a URL after it, it may be necessary to remove the URL, or change it.

Welcome to the sauce that is the never ending problem of a Universal Interface.

jquery $(window).height() == $(document).height()

Google Chrome gives the full height of the page if you call $(window).height()

Instead, use window.innerHeight to retrieve the height of your window.
Necessary check should be:

    if($(window).scrollTop() + window.innerHeight > $(document).height() - 50) {
        console.log("reached bottom!");

NON JQUERY version

 let listContainer = document.getElementById('news_list_container');
    listContainer.addEventListener('scroll', function(e) {
//, 12px buffer to make this work properly
      if (listContainer.scrollTop >= (listContainer.scrollHeight - listContainer.offsetHeight - 12)) {
        console.log('we are at the bottom now', listContainer.scrollTop, listContainer.scrollHeight - listContainer.offsetHeight) ;

I had the same issue, but none of these solutions helped me. For whom it is not not working just try this code and you are done

       $(window).on("scroll", function() {
            if ((window.innerHeight + window.scrollY) >= document.body.offsetHeight) {
                // ok

This code works perfect!

How to modify this code to trigger event 100px before bottom?
Is it possible?

find out particular elements scroll bottom
var scrollHeight = $(this).find("table").height(); //user_container inside elements height
var currentElementHeight = $(this).height()
var scrollMax = scrollHeight - currentElementHeight;
if(scrollMax == $(this).scrollTop()){
console.log("reached at Bottom");

    var scrollHeight = window.scrollY || $(window).scrollTop();                                          
        if ((window.innerHeight + scrollHeight) >= document.body.offsetHeight) {                       
            // do something

If you want to do it in a element scroll, you can do this:

// ...
        var parent = $('#parent')
        var child = $('#child')
parent.on("scroll", function() {
	if (parent.scrollTop()+parent[0].offsetHeight-child[0].scrollHeight === 0) {
	    // when scroll to bottom of the page
