Hi,

Would you like to change the entire scrollbar color? Then please copy paste the below code to your style.css


html{
overflow-y: auto;
background-color: transparent;
}

::-webkit-scrollbar {
width:15px; // width of the scrolpane

}
::-webkit-scrollbar-button:start:decrement,
::-webkit-scrollbar-button:end:increment {
display:block;
background-color: #ccc; // color of scrollpane nav
}
::-webkit-scrollbar-track-piece {
background-color: #ccc; // color of scrollpane track
}
::-webkit-scrollbar-thumb:vertical {
height:60px;
background-color: #666;
border: 1px solid #eee;
-webkit-border-radius: 6px;
}


Hope this helps you.

Thanks
Sai

Hi,

To set the color mentioned by you, please change


::-webkit-scrollbar-thumb:vertical {

height:60px;

background-color: #666;

border: 1px solid #eee;

-webkit-border-radius: 6px;

}
<code>

to

<code>
::-webkit-scrollbar-thumb:vertical {
height:60px;
background-color: rgb(235, 221, 62);
}



This will change the existing scrollbar color. If you would like to implement it like the example (fading will not work with the given code), better you choose some jquery. Please update me your response, will help you.

Thanks
Sai
