jscrollpane Track width

dzash2000 used Ask the Experts™
Hi - I'm trying to use the very popular "jScrollpane" on my site and cannot figure out how to widen the track where the grab-drag and arrows up/down live.

I've tried "width:30px" in every css statement and can't get it any wider than the demo 8px. I've even replaced the images of the "grab-drag.gif" and the arrows thinking I could force the track to match.  Nothing works.

Can someone tell me the secret of widening the jScrollpaneTrack??

hope that helps


vukovarcan - thanks for your response.  As a longtime javascript struggler I often ask questions with answers that are obvious to everyone else.  This never diminishes the value of learning the correct answers.

Your answer was perfect.  But also, your answer showed me the way to another solution which is to add the scrollbarWidth in the head of the html of the document.  So thanks to your tip I was able to use this:

<script type="text/javascript">



Thank you.


a solution that is correct and instructive. Double plus.
