onClick to link to ID of element

Hello - if I have a button and want to use velo to link it to a specific element based off its ID, how would I write that code?

$w.onReady(function () {

    $w("#button1").onClick(() => {
        $w("#text123").[ this is where I get messed up ]("xxx");

Thank you!

What exactly do you want to achieve?

What should happen, when you click onto that button ?

I would like it go to the element like you would do with an anchor, but without using an anchor.

So then do not use an anchor.
As i know, you can do the same way with every other element, like you do it with an anchor.

Take a look, normaly every element should also have…
a) onViewportEnter
b) onViewportLeave
This is what you need as triggered event.
And the second part what you will need is scrollTo.

Perfect! I’ll try the scrollTo function. Thank you!

Thank you russian-dima! The scrollTo code worked perfectly!

No Problem, you are welcome.

Hey …

You should use the button’s onClick( ) event handler to go to the needed element with the help of the scrollTo( ) method.

If the element is on the same page.

$w('#button').onClick(() => {
    const elementId = "theElementId";

If the element is on another page:

import { session } from 'wix-storage';
import { to } from 'wix-location';

$w('#button').onClick(() => {
    const redirect = {
        page: "/contact-us",
        id: "contactForm"
    // Save the details.
    session.setItem("itemScroll", JSON.stringify(redirect));
    // Go the destination page first.
// On the destination page
import { session } from 'wix-storage';

$w.onReady(() => {
    // Get the details from the storage
    let scroll = session.getItem("itemScroll");
    // Check if the element is saved or not
    if (typeof scroll === 'string') {
        // Parsing the object
        scroll = JSON.parse('scroll');
        // Check if there's an ID
        if (typeof scroll.id === 'string') {            
            // Check if ID is a valid selector ID
            if ($w(scroll.id)) {
                // Scroll to the element

Hope this helps~!

By the way, i just saw that everything already was given/implemented in Ahmad’s example above (in a very nice solution).
