Custom scroll

Pro version only

This functionality requires PRO version of the DHTMLX Suite package.

From v7.2, DHTMLX includes neat custom scrollbars with a thin grey semi-transparent design to replace the standard browser scrollbars. The custom bars come with the auto-hide behavior, i.e., they are initially hidden and shown only when the user hovers the mouse over the page.

The custom scroll is available for the following DHTMLX components: List, DataView, Grid, TreeGrid, Layout cell, Toolbar, Ribbon, Sidebar, Window.

To add the feature into your application, you need to set the enable property of the dhx.scrollViewConfig global variable to true before initialization of the widgets:

// enable the custom scroll for all available widgets
dhx.scrollViewConfig.enable = true;

// initialize a widget
const list = new dhx.List("list_container", {
itemHeight: 30

or apply the enable() method of the scrollView object after initialization of the widget:

// initialize the widget
const list = new dhx.List("list", {
template: listTemplate,
itemHeight: 52,
height: "100%",
dragMode: "both",

// enable custom scroll
