Replacing the control template of a scroll bar
ScrollBar control is rarely used on its own. This is hinted by the fact that it's located in the
System.Windows.Controls.Primitives namespace. It is, however, an important building block for many elements, such as
ListBox. Instead of trying to customize the template for a
ScrollViewer or a
ListBox to get a different look for the scroll bars, it's better to customize the
ScrollBar itself (usually with an automatic style), causing all
ScrollBar controls to appear the same way no matter which other, higher-level controls, use them. Let's see what it takes to replace a scroll bar's control template.
Make sure Visual Studio is up and running.
