In this article I will provide an example to animate jQuery ScrollTop function i.e. how to implement jQuery ScrollTop with animation.
 
Implement jQuery ScrollTop with Animation
I have added some text to the page so that I can illustrate the Scrolling back to Top functionality.
At the bottom, there’s an HTML Anchor with ID scrollToTop. This element when clicked will smoothly scroll the page back to the top and in order to achieve this I have added a jQuery OnClick event handler for the element.
The CSS styles for the page as well as the scrollToTop element has been placed within the HEAD section of the page.
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
    <title></title>
    <style type="text/css">
        body
        {
            font-family: Arial;
            font-size: 10pt;
        }
        #scrollToTop
        {
             cursor:pointer;
             background-color:#0090CB;
             display:inline-block;
             height:40px;
             width:40px;
             color:#fff;
             font-size:16pt;
             text-align:center;
             text-decoration:none;
             line-height:40px;
        }
    </style>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.8.3/jquery.min.js"></script>
    <script type = "text/javascript">
        $(function () {
            $('#scrollToTop').bind("click", function () {
                $('html, body').animate({ scrollTop: 0 }, 1200);
                return false;
            });
        });
    </script>
</head>
<body>
