@shot Thank you for replying. Yes that’s the unfortunate workaround I’ve been using for the last four months. On page load I scroll to last entry, then scroll back. I animate the scroll back in the unlikely event that a user beats Bubble’s script to seeing the rg scrolling back.
Then I had the use case that that specific RG was in view on page load. I built a cover for it with a spinner, that checked when the RG was done loading and faded out. Worked. DId the scroll back scroll forward trick, but then bubble doesn’t know when the RG was done scrolling, so faded halfway through and it looks bad. Next I was looking at building an “in-view” function in jquery like I use for fade-in when elements are in viewport. No luck there either, because horizontal scrl group technically have their first item in view and it doesn’t go “out of view” until the user horizontally scrolls past. Soooooo now I’m reading threads and I’m sure putting in the hours. However, I feel like it would turn off less stubborn people than I to have to work through hacks to get what seems to be a very popular UI display tool (Insta, Gplay, Facebook all use horizontal scrolling groups) to work properly.
So I was just wondering if there’s a way to get RG’s to force load/force display a specific number of cells with JS, jquery or if it was possible for the @bubble team to let us do this “natively” (eventually, I know you have your hands full with performance). I know that there have been posts about the rg’s not loading on mobile, ext. scrl rg’s misbehaving, and my own ext. scrl rg’s not loading even one full row of data if the page is too big (i.e., only loading the first four records even though the RG has space for five on the page.).
But again, thank you for taking the time to respond. Any other ideas?
