Why emulate a native UI component? Primarily, the inconsistent cross browser behavior of native scrollbars. Firefox for instance considers scrollbars to be entirely outside the layout of a document. If a Draggable element goes over a native scrollbar in this case, the mouse has left the page, disrupting the drag operation. Rewriting the scrollbar in the DOM solves this problem. Fringe benefits include granular control over the behavior and style as well as richer API. This scrollbar implementation includes mouse wheel support, a proportionally drawn handle, and can accommodate dynamic content and layout changes with the recalculateLayout() method.

Use the Mouse Wheel or Handle to Scroll

Control.ScrollBar requires a very particular HTML structure. There must be a positioned outer container, with the track and scrollable container as direct children. The track must contain a single div (with any id or class name). You do not reference the outer container or handle when calling initialize(), only the scrollable content, and the track. The scrollable content must have it's overflow property set to hidden.
