I need to give the user the ability to view controls that may not be within the viewable area of a document window. I would like to do this via scrollbars on the window, but don't seem to be able to find how to implement it.

Help!

Thanks
jp

Hi Joe,

Document windows inherit all the features of ScrollableControl. You can use those to set up scrolling. Just read up on the auto-scroll features of ScrollableControl in the MSDN.

Thanks, found it.

I'm using the document window in conjunction with a form that's loaded at run-time and setting the document window's autoscroll to true and the autoscrollminsize to the size of the container for the document window worked.
