Occurs when the user or code scrolls through the client area.

Namespace: System.Windows.Forms
Assembly: System.Windows.Forms (in

public event ScrollEventHandler Scroll
/** @event */

JScript supports the use of events, but not the declaration of new ones.

The Scroll event occurs when the user scrolls through the client area by interacting with the scroll bars, or when the user navigates between controls and the active control scrolls into view. The Scroll event also occurs when you write code, such as setting the AutoScrollPosition property, that scrolls through the client area.

You can use the ScrollOrientation property in your event handler to determine the scroll bar orientation for the Scroll event.

For more information about handling events, see Consuming Events.
