Scroller in android

Post by BigameOver » Wed Jul 01, 2020 11:16 am

Hi guys,
I have a problem with the scroller in android. It doesn't look good there and it looks like the scroller in the web while in IOS it looks like an actual scroller for an app.
Is it possible to make the scroller in android look like the one in IOS.

thank you :D

Could one of the 'Ombudsmen' [Klaus, FourthWorld ?], put ALL the 'scroller in android' posts together
as the current situation is getting a bit silly.

Hi BigameOver,

not out of the box, you will need to "roll your own" with a custom scrollbar.
And that question has already been answered here actually:



The bottom line:
Use a native scroller, so the user can scroll with his fingers!
This is the DEFAULT on the mobile platform and people got used to it.
