Custom Scroller with 'Snap Points' using jQuery and jScrollPane

June 22, 2012 by jason

A customer requested a custom content scroller that would showcase a grid of products on a single page. Unlike a typical scroller, they wanted horizontal only scrolling and the addition of "prev" and "next" links to advance the scroller one product column at a time. The challenge came from a user interface constraint that I imposed myself: I wanted to add "snap points" to the scroller.
