Hi Friends,
We will continue our short tutorial,
today we are going to make a infinite scrollbar html section with the help of javascript getBoundingClientRect Method.
Let's begin

First html,

 <div class="wrapper">
        <section></section>
        <section></section>
        <section></section>
        <section></section>
        <section></section>
    </div>

and second css

   section {
            height: 400px;
            background: linear-gradient(red, green);
            margin: 3rem;
        }

our basic setup is ready.

now coming to the main point of javascript.

window.onscroll = (() => {
            let section = document.querySelectorAll('section')
            let wrapper = document.querySelector('.wrapper');
            let rect = section[section.length - 1].getBoundingClientRect()
            console.log(window.innerHeight)
            console.log(rect.y)

            if (rect.y < window.innerHeight) {
                for(let i = 0; i < 5;){
                    wrapper.innerHTML += `<section> </section>`
                    i++;
                }
            }
        })

The onscroll event occur when the scroll down, so
we setup the section, wrapper variable and rect.

For rect variable with the help of getBoundingClientRect has "y" position of the window.
so we have make a condition

if (rect.y < window.innerHeight) {
                for(let i = 0; i < 5;){
                    wrapper.innerHTML += `<section> </section>`
                    i++;
                }
            }

this condition occurs when the rect.y less than window.innerHeight.
