Methods

This section describes the members used to manipulate the widget.

beginUpdate()

defaultOptions is a static method that the widget class supports. The following code demonstrates how to specify default options for all instances of the ScrollView widget in an application executed on the desktop.

jQuery
JavaScript
DevExpress.ui.dxScrollView.defaultOptions({ 
    device: { deviceType: "desktop" },
    options: {
        // Here go the ScrollView options
    }
});
Angular
TypeScript
import ScrollView from "devextreme/ui/scroll_view";
// ...
export class AppComponent {
    constructor () {
        ScrollView.defaultOptions({
            device: { deviceType: "desktop" },
            options: {
                // Here go the ScrollView options
            }
        });
    }
}

dispose()

Disposes of all the resources allocated to the ScrollView instance.

The following code disposes of an ScrollView instance that corresponds to the element ID (or reference variable in Angular) and removes the element from the DOM:

jQuery

$("#myScrollView").dxScrollView("dispose");
$("#myScrollView").remove();
Angular
HTML
<dx-scroll-view #scrollViewVar id="myScrollView"></dx-scroll-view>
TypeScript
import { ..., ViewChild } from "@angular/core";
import { DxScrollViewComponent } from "devextreme-angular";
// ...
export class AppComponent {
    @ViewChild("scrollViewVar") scrollView: DxScrollViewComponent;

    removeScrollView (e) {
        this.scrollView.instance.dispose();
        document.getElementById("myScrollView").remove();
    }
}

...
let element = document.getElementById("myScrollView");
let instance = ScrollView.getInstance(element) as ScrollView;

// Non-modular approach
let element = document.getElementById("myScrollView");
