::-webkit-scrollbar is a pseudo-element in CSS employed to modify the look of a browser’s scrollbar.
Before we start with how it works and how can it be implemented, we need to know some facts about the element.
- Browsers like Chrome, Safari and Opera support this standard
- Browsers like firefox don’t support this
For the webkit browsers, you can use the following pseudo elements to customize the browser’s scrollbar:
- ::-webkit-scrollbar : the scrollbar
- ::-webkit-scrollbar-button : the arrows that point up or down on the scrollbar
- ::-webkit-scrollbar-thumb : the scrolling handle that can be dragged
- ::-webkit-scrollbar-track : progress bar
- ::-webkit-scrollbar-track-piece : the area not covered by the handle
- ::-webkit-scrollbar-corner : the bottom corner of the scrollbar where vertical and horizontal scrollbars meet
- ::-webkit-resizer : the draggable resizing handle that appears at the bottom corner of some elements
The following example takes each and every element and explains its proper usage (I have also tried to use different colors for each element so that the purpose of each tag can be highlighted separately):
