TextBox.ScrollBars Property

Gets or sets which scroll bars should appear in a multiline TextBox control.

Namespace: System.Windows.Forms
Assembly: System.Windows.Forms (in system.windows.forms.dll)

[LocalizableAttribute(true)] 
public ScrollBars ScrollBars { get; set; }
/** @property */
public ScrollBars get_ScrollBars ()

/** @property */
public void set_ScrollBars (ScrollBars value)

public function get ScrollBars () : ScrollBars

public function set ScrollBars (value : ScrollBars)

Property Value

One 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.
Exception typeCondition

InvalidEnumArgumentException

A value that is not within the range of valid values for the enumeration was assigned to the property.

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

The following code 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.

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!";
 }
 

public void CreateMyMultilineTextBox()
{
    // Create an instance of a TextBox control.
    TextBox textBox1 = new TextBox();
    // Set the Multiline property to true.
    textBox1.set_Multiline(true);
    // Add vertical scroll bars to the TextBox control.
    textBox1.set_ScrollBars(ScrollBars.Vertical);
    // Allow the TAB key to be entered in the TextBox control.
    textBox1.set_AcceptsReturn(true);
    // Allow the TAB key to be entered in the TextBox control.
    textBox1.set_AcceptsTab(true);
    // Set WordWrap to true to allow text to wrap to the next line.
    textBox1.set_WordWrap(true);
    // Set the default text of the control.
    textBox1.set_Text("Welcome!");
} //CreateMyMultilineTextBox
