ScrollableControl.ScrollToControl Method

Calculates the scroll offset to the specified child control.

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

abstract ScrollToControl : 
        activeControl:Control -> Point 
override ScrollToControl : 
        activeControl:Control -> Point 

Parameters

activeControl
Type: System.Windows.Forms.Control
The child control to scroll into view.

Return Value

Type: System.Drawing.Point
The upper-left hand Point of the display area relative to the client area required to scroll the control into view.

The ScrollControlIntoView method uses the ScrollToControl method to calculate how far it must scroll to display the specified control. The AutoScrollOffset property of the child control is used to adjust the scrolled position.

ScrollToControl does not cause scrolling; the SetDisplayRectLocation method is typically used to subsequently scroll to the calculated position.
