Visually based on the “Pretty Simple” Message Style by Piotrek Marciniak, I’ve created a new breed of Adium Message Style – which boasts a completely custom scrollbar.
This message style is a working proof of concept. It is a prototype for the talented folks that create wonderful message styles. I’m a developer, not an artist. I hope that others will use it as a spring board for rapid development of a whole new breed of message styles with custom scrollbars.
Since Adium Message Styles are really web pages, it only seemed right to mash up Prototype JS, LivePipe UI and Scriptaculous!
- Fade-in of messages
- Auto smooth scrolling when new message is received
- Custom styled scrollbar
- Dynamic height scrollbar handle
- Header and Footer objects of scrollbar handle
- Auto-hiding and fading scrollbar (mouse in/out of window)
