Scrollbars

Horizontal scrollbars are presented in summary and “see all” grid views starting with the release 8.7.0.0. This illustration demonstrates horizontal scrollbars in the summary views. The scrollbars are revealed on devices with the “pointer” input, such as mouse or stylus.

Horizontal scrollbars are displayed along the bottom edge of the summary view grids in apps with Touch UI.

By default, the vertical and horizontal scrollbars are presented with a narrow footprint for mobile and desktop users. A new setting in ~touch-settings.json will enable “wide” scrollbars in the app. If the primary audience of the app is expected to use a mouse, then set this option for a more comfortable scrolling.

Wide scrollbars setting will increase the comfort of scrolling for the end users with pointer devices, such as mouse or stylus.

Wide horizontal scrollbars are also displayed for summary grid views in Touch UI.

This configuration of ~/touch-settings.json enables “wide” scrollbars unconditionally.

  "ui": {
    "scrollbars": {
      "wide": true
    }
  }
}

    "scrollbars": {
      "wide": "pointer"
    }
  }
