You can't get the handle because there isn't one.  It's a fake scroll bar drawn by the list control.

You can override it a bit by descending from CListBox and overriding OnNcPaint.  Unfortunately, some of the scrollbar will get called directly from some scrollbar internal functions.

Er, that is "some of the scrollbar *drawing code* will get called directly from some *listbox* internal functions."
