[Qt-creator] Adjusting colors in one of the Themes

Thanks but those are for the little highlight marks that appear in the 
scroll bar. I want to change the color of either the scrollbar handle 
itself or the scrollbar background. Those two are so close in contrast 
that they are very hard to tell apart. It wonder if the scrollbar colors 
are baked into the actual source code for QtCreator? Or maybe one of the 
"Styles" that Qt supports on Windows?

Could a QtCreator developer maybe point to the place in the source code 
where the styles and colors are initialized?
