The following example demonstrates how to set some of the TrackBar properties.

trackBar2.Orientation = Orientation.Vertical;
trackBar3.Orientation = Orientation.Vertical;
trackBar1.Maximum = trackBar2.Maximum = trackBar3.Maximum = 255;
trackBar1.Width = 400;
trackBar2.Height = trackBar3.Height = trackBar1.Width;
