Still can't make it. Can you send a fiddle? Thanks

E.g.

var element = $('div#id');

$(window).scroll(function()
{
    if(
        $(window).scrollTop() > element.offset().top + element.outerHeight() - $(window).height()
        && $(window).scrollTop() < element.offset().top + element.outerHeight()
    )
    {
        //* The element is visible. Do some stuff here.
    }
});
