ScrollView - Remove scroll indicators

I need the ability to remove the scroll indicators on scrollviews.


ListView has the ability to remove the scroll indicators using scrollIndicatorMode and settings it using bb::cascades:Smiley FrustratedcrollIndicatorMode::Type.


This functionality is not provided in the ScrollView.


Is there a way to remove the scroll indicators on scroll views or will this be provided in the next Beta release?

Hi jdwilks,


Thanks for your question!


There is currently no way to remove the scroll indictors in a scrollview. However, here are two workaround options you can try:


  1. You could skip the scrollView and write the touch and scroll handling yourself.
  2. Or make the scrollview larger than the screen so the scrollbars gets positioned outside the screen, i.e. something like:

Page {

Container {

    layout: AbsoluteLayout {


    ScrollView {

        scrollViewProperties.scrollMode: ScrollMode.Both

        layoutProperties: AbsoluteLayoutProperties {

            positionY: -20

            positionX: 20


        translationX: -20

        preferredWidth: 768 + 20

        preferredHeight: 1280 + 20

        ImageView {

            imageSource: "asset:///images/myimage.png"

            preferredHeight: 5000

            preferredWidth: 5000
