Height of progress scrollbar

Post by hutchfx » Wed Jan 17, 2018 1:45 am

Changing the height of a horizontal progress scrollbar only changes the rectangle of the object. Is there a way to change the height of the visible bar?

Thanks!

Hutch

On a scrollbar, it is the thumbsize your looking to change I am pretty sure.

Hi Hutch,

I think no, but you can create your own progress/scroll bar with LC :D
Best regards

The thumbSize of a horizontal scrollbar determines
how LONG the thumb of the scrollbar is.

While you can use scrollbarWidth to "fatten" the scrollbars in a field you
cannot, for some odd reason, do that with a standalone scrollBar.

My bad, I thought that was what he was trying to change. Yah, rolling your own is the only way I know of then.
