Scroll To Top Button With Scroll Progress | HTML, CSS & Javascript

Hello everyone. Welcome to today’s tutorial. In today’s tutorial, we will learn how to create a scroll to the top button. This scroll to the top button also has a circular scroll progress indicator. To build this button, we HTML, CSS and, some Vanilla javascript.

The javascript we will use is pretty simple and absolutely beginner-friendly. I also have a tutorial on the scroll progress indicator bar on my youtube channel. You can check out the tutorial here.

When the user scrolls a certain amount of page, the scroll to top button becomes visible. The percentage of the page that is scroll, is indicated with a circular progress bar around the button. When the user clicks on the button it takes the user back to the very top of the page.

If you prefer to code along to a video tutorial rather than reading the blog post, you can check out the video here down below. Also, don’t forget to subscribe to my youtube channel, where I post web development related tips, tricks and tutorials regularly.

Project Folder Structure:

Before we code, we need to create the project folder structure. The project folder consists of a folder called – Scroll To Top With Scroll Progress.

Inside this folder, we create three files – index.html, style.css and script.js. They are the HTML document, the stylesheet and the javascript file respectively. Now let us begin the coding.


We start with HTML. Now copy the code below and paste it into your HTML document. This creates the structure needed to implement the scroll to the top button.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0" />
    <title>Scroll To Top With Scroll Progress</title>
    <!-- Google Font -->
    <!-- Stylesheet -->
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css" />
    <div id="progress">
      <span id="progress-value">&#x1F815;</span>
    <h1>Back To Top Button</h1>
    <h3>With Scroll Progress</h3>

Next, we use CSS to style and position this button. Copy the code provided below and paste it into your stylesheet.

* {
  padding: 0;
  margin: 0;
  box-sizing: border-box;
  font-family: "Poppins", sans-serif;
html {
  scroll-behavior: smooth;
h1 {
  background-color: #03cc65;
  color: #ffffff;
  font-size: 15vmin;
  text-align: center;
  padding-top: 30px;
h3 {
  background-color: #03cc65;
  color: #001a2e;
  font-size: 8vmin;
  text-align: center;
p {
  font-size: 3vmin;
  line-height: 2em;
  letter-spacing: 0.05em;
  text-align: justify;
  margin: 50px 0;
  padding: 0 30px;
#progress {
  position: fixed;
  bottom: 20px;
  right: 10px;
  height: 70px;
  width: 70px;
  display: none;
  place-items: center;
  border-radius: 50%;
  box-shadow: 0 0 10px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.2);
  cursor: pointer;
#progress-value {
  display: block;
  height: calc(100% - 15px);
  width: calc(100% - 15px);
  background-color: #ffffff;
  border-radius: 50%;
  display: grid;
  place-items: center;
  font-size: 35px;
  color: #001a2e;


Finally, we need to implement the functionality. We use javascript to add the logic. Now copy the code below and paste it into your script file.

let calcScrollValue = () => {
  let scrollProgress = document.getElementById("progress");
  let progressValue = document.getElementById("progress-value");
  let pos = document.documentElement.scrollTop;
  let calcHeight =
    document.documentElement.scrollHeight -
  let scrollValue = Math.round((pos * 100) / calcHeight);
  if (pos > 100) {
    scrollProgress.style.display = "grid";
  } else {
    scrollProgress.style.display = "none";
  scrollProgress.addEventListener("click", () => {
    document.documentElement.scrollTop = 0;
  scrollProgress.style.background = `conic-gradient(#03cc65 ${scrollValue}%, #d7d7d7 ${scrollValue}%)`;

window.onscroll = calcScrollValue;
window.onload = calcScrollValue;
