When working on a project of mine, I needed to detect when a user was scrolling the page if they had reached the bottom. I tried looking for a simple solution; however, I could not find one. Well, using jQuery and a little Javascript this can easily be detected. The functionality to detect if a user has reached the bottom of the page is written below:

<script type="text/javascript">
		
	$(window).scroll(function() {
		
		if(document.height == window.pageYOffset + window.innerHeight)
		{
			// the bottom of the document has been hit.
		}
	});
		
</script>

Now, if you'd like to see this functioning, you can checkout the following demo page:

The code for the demo page is found below:

				$('#notification2').html('document.height = ' + document.height);
				$('#notification3').html('window.pageYOffset + window.innerHeight = ' + (window.pageYOffset + window.innerHeight));
			
				if(document.height == window.pageYOffset + window.innerHeight)
				{
					// hit bottom
					$('#notification1').html('HIT BOTTOM');
				}
				else
				{
					$('#notification1').html('NOT AT BOTTOM');
				}
			});
		
		</script>
		
		<style type="text/css">
