Styling Scrollbars

DESCRIPTION

According to the W3C standards, scrollbars are not part of the page but the browser. Therefore they are not supposed to be decorated, although some browsers like InternetExplorer and WebKit (Safari, Chrome,Midori, Shiira, Epiphany) are an exception. The following table explains the main elements of a scrollbar and what RadFormDecorator does on them for browsers that support the feature:

SOLUTION

This help article (its Skin-specific Scrollbar Settings for WebKit Browsers section) lists the CSS rules RadFormDecorator uses to style scrollbars. They can be used to create a custom design.

This example shows a RadComboBox with Skin set to "Vista" along with FormDecorator with Skin set to "WebBlue". The following set of styling rules changes the color of the Scrollbar face of "WebBlue" skin to Red results in the following appearance:

The skin name can be changed from WebBlue to the name of the skin that is actually used.

This wil work only under browsers that support scrollbar styling (i.e. WebKit based).
