Property Value

Type: System.Windows.Forms.ScrollBars

One of the ScrollBars values. The default is Both.

Exception Condition

The specified value when setting this property is not a valid ScrollBars value.


The value of this property cannot be set because the DataGridView is unable to scroll due to a cell change that cannot be committed or canceled.

Regardless of the value of this property, scroll bars are shown only when they are needed. Use this property to prevent scroll bars from appearing. This is useful, for example, when you want to provide an alternative user interface (UI) for scrolling.
