Hi All,

I have a control template for a ListBox and I would like to change the scrollbars on the ScrollViewer. I've been playing around with the Styled ScrollViewer template so I'm OK with changing the basic appearance of the scrollbar. But, I would like a scrollbar with no repeat buttons, which would seem to pretty much make it a slider. Can I replace the scrollbars with sliders or should I just focus on removing the buttons instead

Thanks,

Chris

You can restyle ScrollBar to look like a slider but ScrollViewer expects to find ScrollBars in its template so you won't be able to use a Slider directly.

I've slightly modified the sample ScrollBar template from the SDK (at http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-gb/library/ms742173.aspx) and came up with this:
