hi, try this:

<div style="height:350px;width:775px;overflow:auto;scrollbar-base-color:red;">

refer for example to this:

but the scrollbar styling is not working in all browsers (it's IE only).


what happens in other browsers? Do you see a the gray scrollbar still?
yes, in other browser you will see scrollbars as defined in the users environment...

coloring the scrollbar is not contained in the CSS2 specs (only CSS3) so at this time it's only IE's behavior (as far as i know)


Thanks for the help that worked
