# Auto

Use overscroll-auto to make it possible for the user to continue scrolling a parent scroll area when they reach the boundary of the primary scroll area.

# Contain

Use overscroll-contain to prevent scrolling in the target area from triggering scrolling in the parent element, but preserve “bounce” effects when scrolling past the end of the container in operating systems that support it.

# None

Use overscroll-none to prevent scrolling in the target area from triggering scrolling in the parent element, and also prevent “bounce” effects when scrolling past the end of the container.

# Responsive

To control the overscroll-behavior property at a specific breakpoint, add a {screen}: prefix to any existing overscroll-behavior utility. For example, use md:overscroll-contain to apply the overscroll-contain utility at only medium screen sizes and above.

<div class="overscroll-auto md:overscroll-contain lg:overscroll-none ...">
<!-- ... -->
</div>
