To get or set the scroll position of an HTML element, you can use the scrollLeft and scrollTop properties.

The scrollLeft property sets or returns the number of pixels an element's content is allowed to scroll horizontally.

Similarly, the scrollTop property sets or returns the number of pixels an element's content is scrolled vertically.

Both these properties are relative to the top left corner of the element, which is by default (0, 0).

The following example shows how to get the scroll position of an HTML element with a class .wrapper:

const div = document.querySelector('.wrapper');

const x = div.scrollLeft;
const y = div.scrollTop;

To reset the scroll position of the .wrapper element, you can use the following code:

const div = document.querySelector('.wrapper');

div.scrollLeft = 150;
div.scrollTop = 150;
