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 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.
