Sticky Headers

Inspired by ‘Sticky’ by Ismael Martínez and ‘Parallax’ by Linton Ye

This package lets you add headers that stick to the top of the screen when you scroll.

  • New in version 2.5 – Place StickyElements anywhere in the scroll content including inside stacks and frames
  • Only supports vertical scrolling


After you install this package you will see two components: StickyScroll and StickyElement.

StickyScroll works like a native Scroll component. StickyElement should be placed inside your scroll content and connected to another canvas element. This will make the connected content appear inside the scroll content and stick when you scroll past the top of the scroll component.

You can use multiple StickyElements in your scroll content. Each StickyElement reaching the top pushes the StickyElement above it up and off the top of scroll component.

Property Controls for StickyScroll Component

Property Type Description Default
Offset number Makes elements stick at a set distance below the top of the scroll component 0
Lock boolean Controls whether the Scroll should ignore dragging in its opposite direction while scrolling 1 Axis
Drag scroll boolean Controls whether the Scroll should respond to drag interactions On
Wheel scroll boolean Controls whether the Scroll should respond to scroll interactions On
Fill color Show or hide, and set the fill color Hide

Screen Recording (Framer X)

How to use with overrides

You can do stuff based on the scroll position by adding an override to the your StickyScroll component that sets an onScroll event handler:

import { Override } from "framer"

// Apply this override to your scroll component
export const StickyScroll: Override = () => {
  return {
    onScroll: info => {

… or you can track changes to the scroll position using a MotionValue. Here’s how you could use this approach to add a parallax effect:

import { Override, motionValue, useTransform } from "framer"

const contentOffsetY = motionValue(0)

// Apply this override to your scroll component
export function StickyScroll(): Override {
    return { contentOffsetY: contentOffsetY }

// Apply this override to your parallax layer
export function ParallaxLayer(): Override {
    const y = useTransform(contentOffsetY, [0, -100], [0, 50], {
        clamp: false,
    return {
        y: y,
