This enumeration is used by TextBox.ScrollBars.

Not all controls support scroll bars. Use this enumeration to specify which scroll bars will be visible on a control, either under some or all circumstances.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the ScrollBars enumeration.To run the example, paste the following code in a form. Call the SetFourDifferentScrollBars method in the form's constructor or Load event-handling method.


// Declare four textboxes.
internal System.Windows.Forms.TextBox vertical;
internal System.Windows.Forms.TextBox horizontal;
internal System.Windows.Forms.TextBox both;
internal System.Windows.Forms.TextBox none;

private void SetFourDifferentScrollBars()
{
    
    this.vertical = new System.Windows.Forms.TextBox();
    this.horizontal = new System.Windows.Forms.TextBox();
    this.both = new System.Windows.Forms.TextBox();
    this.none = new System.Windows.Forms.TextBox();

    // Create a string for the Text property.
    string startString = "The scroll bar style for my textbox is: ";

    // Set the location of the four textboxes.
    horizontal.Location = new Point(10, 10);
    vertical.Location = new Point(10, 70);
    none.Location = new Point(10, 170);
    both.Location = new Point(10, 110);

    // For horizonal scroll bars, the Multiline property must
    // be true and the WordWrap property must be false.
    // Increase the size of the Height property to ensure the 
    // scroll bar is visible.
    horizontal.ScrollBars = ScrollBars.Horizontal;
    horizontal.Multiline = true;
    horizontal.WordWrap = false;
    horizontal.Height = 40;
    horizontal.Text = startString + 
        ScrollBars.Horizontal.ToString();

    // For the vertical scroll bar, Multiline must be true.
    vertical.ScrollBars = ScrollBars.Vertical;
    vertical.Multiline = true;
    vertical.Text = startString + ScrollBars.Vertical.ToString();

    // For both scroll bars, the Multiline property 
    // must be true, and the WordWrap property must be false.
    // Increase the size of the Height property to ensure the 
    // scroll bar is visible.
    both.ScrollBars = ScrollBars.Both;
    both.Multiline = true;
    both.WordWrap = false;
    both.Height = 40;
    both.AcceptsReturn = true;
    both.Text = startString + ScrollBars.Both.ToString();

    // The none scroll bar does not require specific 
    // property settings.
    none.ScrollBars = ScrollBars.None;
    none.Text = startString + ScrollBars.None.ToString();
