Changing Size Of Scroll Box Control Through Apperance Tab In Desktop's Right Click Properties Option ---- I think Mr. Arvin Meyer Can Help Me

P: n/a
Dear All,

The subject line could be bit confusing. So let me explain in
details, please have patience. I have developed an ActiveX
Control(Combo Box Control) in VB6 for a touch screen application since
the user had problems working with the small Combo Box Button and
Scroll Box Scroll Button that appears in the Combo Box Control Shipped
with VB. While going through questions in this group i learnt that one
can change the size of the Combo Box Control Button & Scroll Box that
appears on clicking Combo Button by right clicking on the Desktop and
then selecting APPEARANCE Tab and then Selecting Scroll Box from the
drop down list and changing the size from 16(default). But there is
one problem associated with this method. On changing the Size Of
Scroll Box, entire setting for all the windows changes i.e all scroll
bar size changes. is there any way by which one can restrict the
setting to the current Application or Exe.
Thank you for your patience.

Hope i am clear.

thank you in advance.

regards,

The short answer is no.
The longer answer is I have seen subclassing code that does allow you to
set the size of the ScrollBar for individual windows but it is very
complex and written in C++.

I would go back in VB and add a seperate ScrollBar control next
to/partially covering the Combo control. YOu could easily add code to
the ScrollBar ActiveX control to enable it to mimic the Combo's built in
ScrollBar.
