[Visual Basic]
Public Property ScrollBars As ScrollBars
[C#]
public ScrollBars ScrollBars {get; set;}
[C++]

public: __property void set_ScrollBars(ScrollBars);
[JScript]
public function get ScrollBars() : ScrollBars;
public function set ScrollBars(ScrollBars);

Property Value

On of the ScrollBars enumeration values that indicates whether a multiline TextBox control appears with no scroll bars, a horizontal scroll bar, a vertical scroll bar, or both. The default is ScrollBars.None.

Exceptions

Exception Type Condition

Remarks

Horizontal scroll bars will not be shown if the WordWrap property is set to true, regardless of the value of the ScrollBars property.

Example

[Visual Basic, C#, C++] The following example creates a multiline TextBox control with vertical scroll bars. This example also uses the AcceptsTab, AcceptsReturn, and WordWrap properties to make the multiline TextBox control useful for creating text documents.

[Visual Basic] 
Public Sub CreateMyMultilineTextBox()
    ' Create an instance of a TextBox control.
    Dim textBox1 As New TextBox()
    
    ' Set the Multiline property to true.
    textBox1.Multiline = True
    ' Add vertical scroll bars to the TextBox control.
    textBox1.ScrollBars = ScrollBars.Vertical
    ' Allow the TAB key to be entered in the TextBox control.
    textBox1.AcceptsReturn = True
    ' Allow the TAB key to be entered in the TextBox control.
    textBox1.AcceptsTab = True
    ' Set WordWrap to true to allow text to wrap to the next line.
    textBox1.WordWrap = True
    ' Set the default text of the control.
    textBox1.Text = "Welcome!"
End Sub


[C#] 
public void CreateMyMultilineTextBox()
{
    // Create an instance of a TextBox control.
    TextBox textBox1 = new TextBox();
    
    // Set the Multiline property to true.
    textBox1.Multiline = true;
    // Add vertical scroll bars to the TextBox control.
    textBox1.ScrollBars = ScrollBars.Vertical;
    // Allow the TAB key to be entered in the TextBox control.
    textBox1.AcceptsReturn = true;
    // Allow the TAB key to be entered in the TextBox control.
    textBox1.AcceptsTab = true;
    // Set WordWrap to true to allow text to wrap to the next line.
    textBox1.WordWrap = true;
    // Set the default text of the control.
    textBox1.Text = "Welcome!";
 }
 

[C++] 
public:
void CreateMyMultilineTextBox()
{
    // Create an instance of a TextBox control.
    TextBox* textBox1 = new TextBox();
    
    // Set the Multiline property to true.
    textBox1->Multiline = true;
    // Add vertical scroll bars to the TextBox control.
    textBox1->ScrollBars = ScrollBars::Vertical;
    // Allow the TAB key to be entered in the TextBox control.
    textBox1->AcceptsReturn = true;
    // Allow the TAB key to be entered in the TextBox control.
    textBox1->AcceptsTab = true;
    // Set WordWrap to true to allow text to wrap to the next line.
    textBox1->WordWrap = true;
    // Set the default text of the control.
    textBox1->Text = S"Welcome!";
 }
