Remarks

The track is the element of a scroll bar on which the scroll box can slide either up and down or left and right. The scroll box is the square box within a scroll bar that can be moved either up and down or left and right on a track to change the position of the content on the screen.

This property applies to elements that display a scroll bar. Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) enable scrolling on all objects through the overflow property. These objects are not listed in the Applies To list for this property.

Examples

This example uses scrollbar-track-color, scrollbar-face-color, and scrollbar-arrow-color to create two div objects with different scroll bar color schemes.


div {
  width: 150px;
  height: 150px;
  border-style: solid;
  border-width: thin;
  overflow-y: scroll;
  font-family: sans-serif;
  float: left;
  margin-right: 10px;
}
.blueScroll {
  scrollbar-highlight-color: aqua;
  scrollbar-face-color: blue;
  scrollbar-arrow-color: blue;
  border-color: blue;
}
.redScroll {
  scrollbar-highlight-color: bisque;
  scrollbar-face-color: red;
  scrollbar-arrow-color: red;
  border-color: red;
}


<body>
  <div class="blueScroll">
    Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit, sed diam nonummy nibh euismod tincidunt ut laoreet dolore magna aliquam erat volutpat.
  </div>
  <div class="redScroll">
    Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit, sed diam nonummy nibh euismod tincidunt ut laoreet dolore magna aliquam erat volutpat.
