Ability to change a table scrollbar skin

Currently the only scrollbar skin that can be applied to a table is the default scrollbar skin for the current application skin. The only way to get around this is to create a new JADE application skin with the desired different scrollbar skin. Obviously doing this is highly unproductive as it results in double the skin maintenance.

I spoke with BJ about this as he was heavily involved in our UI redesign project by the JADE design team. He mentioned running into the same frustration.

Any application that is used on touch screens will likely require some controls to be larger - because fingers are quite a bit bigger than mouse pointers!

Btw. Using separate scrollbar controls is not an option for us as we have just converted 2000+ screens from our proprietary table handling to JADEs table.displayCollection.

We are big on touch screens also, so yes please!

    Hi , Can we have this included in an early hotfix instead of waiting for the next Jade release? We plan to release our new skins into production in the last quarter of 2019.. If we were to wait until the next Jade release if could be a further 3 to 6 months before that Jade version reaches our production systems which could be a year from now. Releasing this early would make the scroll bars blend in more with the other controls sharing the same skin category. Thanks, Mike

    Combo's with a style of "4-SpinBox List" also have the spin buttons showing with the default skin applied instead of the skin category assigned to the combo. Can this also be fixed as part of this JEDI request.

    Example. Refer to the attachment also

    The textbox with a white backcolor contains a skin category.
    However the scrollbar defaults to to the no skin category version of the HScroll/Vscroll which is dark.

    I don't really want to have to maintain multiple skins and apply the skin to individual forms to get around this issue

    I would be happy if it can be implemented in same way that BeeJay suggests.

    Further to Callum's suggestion, for controls which can gain scroll bars, such as tables/listboxes/comboboxes/pictures, if that control has a skin category applied and there is a HScroll/Vscroll defined for that same category, it would be good if it could use that category version of the HScroll/VScroll with the fall back to the default non-category version of the HScroll/VScroll skin when there isn't a match to retain the current behaviour.
