Public methods

Usefull public methods You can call these methods via ref: Method Description reset() Reset all state back to initial. scrollToBottom() Manual set scroll position to bottom. scrollToIndex(index) Manual set scroll position to a designated index. scrollToOffset(offset) Manual set scroll position to a designated offset. getSize(id) Get the designated item size by id (from data-key value). getSizes() Get the total number of stored (rendered) items. getOffset() Get current scroll offset. getClientSize() Get wrapper element client viewport size (width or height). getScrollSize() Get all scroll size (scrollHeight or scrollWidth). updatePageModeFront() When using page mode and virtual list root element offsetTop or offsetLeft change, you need call this method manually.


This component use an in-place patch strategy to render list instead of v-for and :key. This way achieves the best efficient, but only suitable when your list output does not rely on item component inner state or temporary DOM state (e.g. form input values).

But how to deal with such a situation? Without maintaining inner state, recommend to use props and dispatch (stateless component), here is an example keep-state.
