Hi,

I want to change color of Swing scroll bar horizontal and vertical scroll bar color. I worked on that a lot but I am unable to find solution for that.

So can anyone know how to change color of that scroll bar. Please find attached image for more detail.

Don't know. . . . but I need practice writing Actions.Write some text into the two text components to get the scroll bars to appear.

No, you tell me why I get a colour change in the scroll bar at the bottom if I click the "vertical" button, and vice versa. Also see what you can make of the javax.swing.plaf.ScrollBarUI class. Also why the scroll handles don't change colour.
