You can base your implementation on this sample to intercept scrolling:

\\\

Imports System.Windows. Forms

Public Class ScrollPanel
Inherits Panel

I am not sure what you mean by by 'detect the scrollbars are active' but
here are two bits of info that might apply.

1. To determine if scroll bars are enabled test the form's AutoScroll
property.

If myForm.AutoScro ll = True
MessageBox.Show ("Scroll bars are active.")
End IF

2. To determine if the form has been scrolled from its original position
test the form's AutoScrollPosit ion.

If MyForm.AutoScro llPosition.X = 0 And MyForm.AutoScro llPostion.Y = 0 Then
MessageBox.Show ("Form has been scrolled away from its base position.")
End If

Thanks Mike,
but this is not what I am looking for. Your test on 'autoscroll is true'
only shows that autoscrolling is enabled, not that the bars are actually
showing.
If no scrollbars are necessary they are not shown. If scrolling is needed,
autoscroll enabled will provide the bars automatically. I want to know
whether the bars are shown or not.
Regards
Frank

Herfried, thanks for the reply, but as far as I understand your coding it
only shows that the user is scrolling. I want to know whether the scrollbars
are actually shown, or that the formcontrols fit in the window and the
scrollbars are not visible (not needed).
I can't find a way and searching internet didn't provide an answer. I guess
I am the first having this problem.
Thanks

The solution is to use the HScroll and VScroll properties. From the
help...

---
Gets or sets a value indicating whether the horizontal scroll bar is
visible.
---

Unfortunately these are protected properties, so if you want to expose
them publicly you will need to subclass whatever it is you are using,
e.g. Form, UserControl, etc. and add in a new property that passes
through the protected value.

I checked it and it works. Now whether AutoScrollMinSi ze is the actual
size of the scrollbar is another matter :)

I have 2 rich textboxes within an auto-scrolling panel object. The textboxes aren't wider than the panel, so it never scrolls horizontally. But the combined height of both textboxes is taller than that of the panel, so the panel scrolls up and down in order to accomodate both of them. The user can drag the Vscrollbar just fine and move about normally. This setup is probably easier to illustrate than describe verbally: ...
