I think the best way is to add bindings to the scrollbar(s).
something like:
scrollbar.bind("<Button-1>", my_canvas.no_detail)
scrollbar.bind("<ButtonRelease-1>", my_canvas.full_detail)
might do the trick.
another solution would be to hook into the scrollbar interface; see
for some details.
but that only allows you to figure out when to switch to less
detail... you could perhaps switch back after a short timeout,
or when the user moves the mouse back into the canvas.
