VB6 Horizontal Scrollbar: Change width of slider?

Dear All

I want to use the horizontal scrollbar control, but I can't figure out
how to change the width of the slider, i.e. the bit that you drag left
& right. With other controls (eg Textbox), the inbuilt scrollbar
changes its slider width depending on how much text is in the box.
But the slider width of the horizontal scrollbar control always seems
to be the same size.

Can anyone tell me how to do this?

Cheers

The size of the scroll thumb is dependent on the difference between the Min
and Max settings. The initial (and current) position of the thumb relates to
the Value setting.
