Remarks

Windows Internet Explorer 8. The -ms-scrollbar-highlight-color attribute is an extension to CSS, and can be used as a synonym for IHTMLStyle3::scrollbarHighlightColor in IE8 Standards mode.

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. The scroll arrows, located at each end of a scroll bar, are the square buttons containing the arrows that move the content on the screen in small increments, either up and down or left and right.

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

Examples

This example uses IHTMLStyle3::scrollbarHighlightColor, IHTMLStyle3::scrollbarFaceColor, and IHTMLStyle3::scrollbarArrowColor 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.
