Scroll Automatically to the Bottom of the Page

Consider I have a list of questions. When I click on the first question, it should automatically take me to the bottom of the page.

As a matter of fact, I do know that this can be done using jQuery.

So, could you provide me with some documentation or some links where I can find answer to this question?

EDIT: Need to scroll to a particular HTML element at the bottom of the page

Answer

jQuery isn’t necessary. Most of the top results I got from a Google search gave me this answer:

window.scrollTo(0,document.body.scrollHeight);

Where you have nested elements, the document might not scroll. In this case, you need to target the element that scrolls and use it’s scroll height instead.

window.scrollTo(0,document.querySelector(".scrollingContainer").scrollHeight);

You can tie that to the onclick event of your question (i.e. <div onclick="ScrollToBottom()" ...).

Some additional sources you can take a look at:
