I'm trying to style a scroll bar in a DIV (or any other container) using the css I found here:

http://farrukhobaid.wordpress.com/2013/01/16/dark-scrollbar-skin-for-javafx/

as a test, I put the css in a style tag in a blank html file and used the following code to see what would happen:

<div class="scroll-bar" style="height: 300px; width: 100px; overflow: scroll;">
    kjhgfgft<br /><br />
    kjhgfgft<br /><br />
    kjhgfgft<br /><br />
    kjhgfgft<br /><br />
    kjhgfgft<br /><br />
    kjhgfgft<br /><br />
    kjhgfgft<br /><br />
    kjhgfgft<br /><br />
    kjhgfgft<br /><br />
    kjhgfgft<br /><br />
    kjhgfgft<br /><br />
    kjhgfgft<br /><br />
    kjhgfgft<br /><br />
    kjhgfgft<br /><br />
</div>

Open in new window


no matter what I do, I don't get any style. am I missing something or is this code no good?

Okay, the code's no good because it's aimed at a totally different product (some Oracle thing called JavaFX) that may have some integrated browser with a very predictable environment.

I'm pretty sure most of the browsers have removed the pure-CSS solutions or at least have deprecated them.  You should probably do this with JQuery or webkit-specific code instead:

That code is for https://docs.oracle.com/javafx/2/overview/jfxpub-overview.htm

Try removing all of the -fx-

ya that's what I presumed, just wanted to double check. I'll look into a jquery or bootstrap solution (if it exists) and go that route.

I tried removing the -fx- from the css and it still didn't work. Thx anyways
