How can I subclass the scrollbar inside a CListCtrl or a CTreeCtrl.  The method GetScrollBarCtrl returns NULL. My lists and tree are very nice but I'm stuck with ugly gray scrollbars. I only I could get a hold on it...

The so-called 'standard scrollbars' (the ones that appear when the WS_HSCROLL, WS_VSCROLL, or both styles are used when the windows is created) are not actual windows.  THey are elements of the non-client frame of the windows.  Thus, you can't get a handle to them and you can't do any sort of normal subclassing operation.  

The CWnd::GetScrollBarCtrl fn comes into play for CView-derived windows in which a separate CControlBar is created as a 'peer' to the windows that will be scrolled.

Have you tried the InitializeFlatSB() and  FlatSB_SetScrollProp() APIs?  I have not, but it looks like a reasonable way to try out some cosmetic variations on std scrollbars.
