How to preserve-scroll with buttons using inertia js

All we need is an easy explanation of the problem, so here it is.

Working

<Link :href="route('products')" preserve-scroll>Products</Link>

Not Working

<form @submit.prevent="submit">
   ...
   <button type="submit" preserve-scroll>Submit</button>
</form>

package.json

...
"dependencies": {
    "@inertiajs/inertia": "^0.10.1",
    "@inertiajs/inertia-vue3": "^0.5.2",
    "@inertiajs/progress": "^0.2.6",
    "vue": "^3.2.20"
}
...

I haven’t found a way in the inertia documentation to preserve scrolling when clicking on buttons, did someone face it yet?

How to solve :

I know you bored from this bug, So we are here to help you! Take a deep breath and look at the explanation of your problem. We have many solutions to this problem, But we recommend you to use the first method because it is tested & true method that will 100% work for you.

Method 1

You need to tell the request you’re making at the submit method to preserverScroll. Something like this:

submit () {
   this.$inertia.post(url, data, {
      preserveScroll: true
   })
}

And you can remove the preserve-scroll from the button. That is useless.

Note: Use and implement method 1 because this method fully tested our system.
