Scrollbars are components/tools for scrolling or sliding content on the screen. The default or the built-in scrollbars are the conventional long rectangular scrollbars, preferably used with contrasting colors. However, today with many innovative design patters flowing out, there are varieties of scrollbar designs available. A use of good scrollbar makes the application have a more attractive user interface.

  • Allow scrolling by the navigation wheels.
  • Allow scrolling by dragging the screen - for touch enabled devices.
