How to change navbar-default to navbar-inverse on scroll?

At the top of my website, the main navigation class is:

navbar navbar-default navbar-fixed-top bg

I am trying to make it so when you scroll, the class changes to so I can create a more elegant and easier scroll animation:

navbar navbar-inverse navbar-fixed-top bg

How is this accomplished with Javascript? I can't find ANYTHING on the internet...the one thing I did find let you remove one class but doesn't work because I have like 10 different classes at once...


Here's an example.

Use $(window).scroll() and addClass() to add the bg class to your nav when you scroll down past a certain point. Note that addClass and removeClass allow you to add/remove individual class names from tags where multiple classes exist.

Note that you will probably need to use !important to force the color change -- bootstrap can be tenacious.

var viz=true, win = $(window), nav=$('nav');


    pos = win.scrollTop();
    if ( viz && pos > 100 ){
      viz = false;
    }else if ( !viz && pos < 100 ){
      viz = true;

html {
  height: 2000px;
.bg{background:green !important;}
