Scrollbar Colors

Posted by Joat (Joat), 2 October 2003
When working with scrollbars in windows I can't get the options to set the colors to work.  The scrollbar always comes up with the default colors.  Is there anything I can do about this?

Probably not  

Tk uses the graphic library native to the platform on which it's running, which means the Windows Graphics API on Windows, and  X windows on Linux / Unix.    On the positive side, this means that you get a look an feel for your Tk windows that are consistent with the platform, but on the negative side, it means that capabilities not implemented on the native platform can't be supported.

But then ...

If you MUST have coloured sliders, you could draw your own on a canvas and handle the events yourself
