user control scroll


I am writing a hex edit control from a UserControl. I use drawtext
method of the graphics object in the OnPaint. When the text which I
draw go out of the visible rectangle of the control I want to create
scrollbars but they don't appear - I set autoscroll to true and
autoscrollmargi n to (5,5).
If I add a button or other controls the scrollbars are working.

What can I do and what is my mistake?

Yes, this is the way how the build-in scrolling works in windows forms. The
control is a container and it scrolls its content (the controls it contains)
e.g. If a child control doesn't fit the scrolling area it shows up scroll
bars, so one can scroll to see all the controls.

The idea of implementing scrolling in windows forms is to add a child
control (e.g. panel ) to the scrollable control and use this panel as a
drawing canvas. When you need more space just resize the panel and the
container will adjust the scroll bars accordingly.

If you want to implement the type of scrolling you are after you need to use
scrollbar controls and implement your own logic of invalidation and redraw.

I also sometime miss the old Win32 scolling API.

Hi, I would like to have my user control to support scrollbars. So that when the user control is embeded in a pane/view, and the view size is reduced to less than the size of the usercontrol, the user control must show scroll bars. Currently I tried by setting the AutoScroll property to true. Also, I handled the 'Form1_SizeChanged' event for the form. Here I invoke a 'Resize' routine defined by the UserControl - 'ResizeControl' :-

I have basically a 2 part question: 1) is there a way to have a listview that can scroll, but hide the scrollbars. I know that sounds odd, but this is a touch screen app and there are "scroll buttons (just command buttons with graphic)" that go to the next/previous item in the list and that allows the scrolling. I know they can drag the scroll bar down by touching, but that causes me a problem when the selected item goes out of view...

Each of the tab pages is marked AutoScroll = true. When I load the application I load a tree-view control (scrollable = false), to the first tab page, and that page has system scroll bars that...

IF I am making a custom user control which draws stuff that might exceed its boundaries, can I get the user control to handle the scrolling for me? The AutoScroll property doesn't seem to be doing it. Do I have to set some special Size so it knows it's supposed to scroll? Currently by default behavior it is just clipping my content and not putting any scrollbar. and if I can somehow get the user control to add the scrollbar how can I...

Hi, I have a user control which I use on all my pages. The control is situated on the top of my page (sits on my master page). For some long pages the user has to scroll back up to the top of the page to select an option from my user control. Can I make this user control floatable so that as the user scrolls down the page the user control moves down also?

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
