Glossary » scroll elevator

scroll elevator

a box within a scrollbar that allows the user to move to a specific region by dragging the box to the appropriate location within the scrollbar. Also called a “scrollbox” or “thumb”.

An elevator is somewhat unique in the Open Look interface standard, in that the box also has scroll arrows on either side of it that actually move with the elevator, rather than being stationary at the ends of the scrollbar as in most other systems.
