Dropdown list scroll bar

Does anyone know if the scroll bar on a dropdown list can be modified?

I am looking to make them a little larger (wider) as the primary interface for one of my displays will be with a touchscreen monitor.


Ok, there is no easy way to do this, but I have discovered a hacky (but effective!) way to do it on a more broad scale (all scrollbars in the entire application).

Put this script in your application’s startup script:

from javax.swing import UIManager UIManager.put("ScrollBar.width",30)

Note that this will only take effect on windows that are NOT set as startup windows. If this is a problem, don’t set any windows as startup windows and instead use the startup script (after the above snippet) to open your initial windows.

Hope this helps,

Thanks Carl - That worked like a champ.
