How can I disable the scroll to top behavior in an Ajax based View? Preferably, with Javascript.

The scroll behavior is triggered when running a search from an Exposed Form.


I found the solution from an old issue.

The scroll behavior is added as an ajax command viewsScrollTop, you can unset it in hook_views_ajax_data_alter.


 * Implement hook_views_ajax_data_alter().
function YOURMODULE_views_ajax_data_alter(&$commands, $view) {
  // Remove scroll to top behaviour from views ajax
  foreach ($commands as $key => $command) {
    if ($command['command'] == 'viewsScrollTop') {

The solution above is for Drupal 7. In Drupal 8, hook_views_ajax_data_alter is deprecated and was replaced by hook_ajax_render_alter.

For those of you looking for it, here is how to do it in Drupal 8 (source here).

function YOURMODULE_ajax_render_alter(array &$data) {
  foreach ($data as $key => $command) {
    if ($command['command'] === 'viewsScrollTop') {
