[FIXED] Primeng table virtual scroll header jumping while scrolling up


I have a large set of data that needs virtual scrolling and I use PrimeNg v13.4.0 with angular/cdk v13.3.7. I have exactly the same issue with PrimeNg demo. When scrolling down, the sticky header works well, but when scrolling up, it start jumping, the faster scroll, the bigger jump. Does anyone has any solution for this?

This issue and its pull request is added to version 13 future milestone which has no due date.

For now you can do this solution:
If you slow down the wheel speed of the cdk-virtual-scroll-viewport, even slightly,
The thead works as it should without any jumping.

changeWheelSpeed(container, speedY) {
    var scrollY = 0;
    var handleScrollReset = function() {
        scrollY = container.scrollTop;
    var handleMouseWheel = function(e) {
        scrollY += speedY * e.deltaY
        if (scrollY < 0) {
            scrollY = 0;
        } else {
            var limitY = container.scrollHeight - container.clientHeight;
            if (scrollY > limitY) {
                scrollY = limitY;
        container.scrollTop = scrollY;

    var removed = false;
    container.addEventListener('mouseup', handleScrollReset, false);
    container.addEventListener('mousedown', handleScrollReset, false);
    container.addEventListener('mousewheel', handleMouseWheel, false);

    return function() {
        if (removed) {
        container.removeEventListener('mouseup', handleScrollReset, false);
        container.removeEventListener('mousedown', handleScrollReset, false);
        container.removeEventListener('mousewheel', handleMouseWheel, false);
        removed = true;

implement it in the ngAfterViewInit function:

ngAfterViewInit(): void {
    const el = document.querySelector<HTMLElement>('.cdk-virtual-scroll-viewport');
    this.changeWheelSpeed(el, 0.99);
