Angular window scroll up using a component

Let us check how we can scroll up the page/window using angular. I will be creating a simple component that can be placed anywhere in the page and user can click on the button to scroll up the page. Same logic I have done in Angular js 1 by using a directive, if you want to check angular js 1 way of implementation for comparing the difference in angular 1 and 2, please click here.

Angular scroll up component

import { Component,Inject,HostListener } from '@angular/core';
import { DOCUMENT } from '@angular/platform-browser';

  selector: 'scroll-up',
  template:'<button *ngIf="showButton" (click)="scrollToTop()">'
            +'Click here to scroll up'
export class ScrollUpComponent {
  showButton : boolean;
  constructor(@Inject(DOCUMENT) private document: Document) { 
      this.showButton = false;

  @HostListener("window:scroll", [])
  onWindowScroll() {
    const scrollTopHeight = document.body.scrollTop || 0;
    if(scrollTopHeight > 200)
        this.showButton = true;
        this.showButton = false;
    this.document.body.scrollTop = 0;

We are done. This button will be visible only if our condition is true (here 200). I have used ngIf to show or hide the button. Don’t forget to import the dependencies like Inject, HostListener etc.

In this article we have discussed about creating a simple component which will help users to scroll up the page.
