Are the icons and color of a fields scrollbar editable?

Hi Tiemo,

You need to create your own scrollbar.

Create a button and write a script to make it follow the mouseLoc on  
mouseDown, until the mouse is up. Make the button move vertically and  
only between particular coordinates. Set the vScroll of a field to the  
relative vertical distance between the bottom of the button and the  
maximum value of the vertical coordinate to where it can move. Now,  
you can give the vertical space a background and put buttons with  
icons above the top and below the bottom of this background.

Best regards,

Mark Schonewille
