No luck mhartington. I can’t figure out from the docs how to access the scroll data anymore?

I don’t think it exposes an API for getting the positions though. If you need that, perhaps open a feature request.

I’m trying to get the scroll position from the top using $ionicScrollDelegate.getScrollPosition().top and all I get is 0. Am I missing something?

same here, do you have any solution?

I found something by myself, it works:
