    Exclamation Scrollbar Question

    Is it possible to adjust the verticle scrollbar width and make it thinner? If so, what's the script!?

    I don't believe there is a way and if there is, you can be certain that it isn't cross browser. I guess you could always write a java app or a flash presentation, but that isn't HTML. Anyway, what's so critical that you want to save a couple of pixels of space?

    It would be too much of a headache to try to get the scrollbar thinner. Trust me, most visitors are not looking at the scrollbar in comparison with the design. It's the least of your worries

    You can use a DHTML layer with a scroller to mak it thinner

    Not working in Netscape though

    If you are talking about the regular scrollbar though, then no, you can't change it. It's an OS widget and can only be changed at the OS level.

    But if you remove the scroller and than add a dhtml scroller then you can make it as thin as you want to
