Textbox With Vertical Scrollbar - Get The Scrollbar Position Without Having To Reposition The Carat?

Oct 21, 2010

So with the stock Textbox, I set the Scrollbars property to Vertical. This is great if the text in my box never changes; I can scroll up and down while the box sits still. If I'm running a background operation that logs output to the box though, the scrollbar resets itself to the top every time I append text to the box.

I know I can set the Textbox.Selection property (or use the Select method) to reposition the carat in the textbox, make note of that position in a variable, then append text, reset the carat, and use the ScrollToCarat method to reposition the scrollbar where it belongs. That's a really (ridiculously) long way around. Anybody know if there's another/better way of holding the scrollbar position, short of actually building a custom control (or using a Textbox and a separate Scrollbar)? It never hurts to try. In a worst case scenario, you'll learn from it.

Textbox - Set The Position Of A Vertical Scrollbar?

Apr 7, 2012

I have a TextBox control with a lot of text which has a vertical scrollbar, and every time I hide/show the control the position of the scrollbar stays the same. I'm trying to figure out how to change the position of the scrollbar to the top of the textbox, as if it were at the beginning of the text.

PictureBox - Vertical And Horizontal Scrollbar

Aug 27, 2004

The scroll bars actually move now, They just move the wrong thing. When I click the Horizontal bar it moves the picture box to the left part of the screen and I can scroll the box back and forth. If I click the Vertical Bar it goes up to the top and I can move it up and down. So if I click both of them, the picture box goes to (0,0) of the form. It wont move the image inside. I can't figure out how to assign the scrollbars to the image instead of the picturebox.

Try making a form with a Picturebox, Vertical Scrollbar and Horizontal Scrollbar in it and rename all your stuff the way I got mine:
Horizontal Scrollbar = hsbPicMap
Vertical Scrollbar = vsbPicMap
Picturebox = picMap

Set the image property in the properties box to whatever you want. Try to make the picturebox of fairly big size. Mine is set to 656, 528 in pixels, and the location is 152, 72 on the form. The image I am using is about 1500, 1200. The bars are on the right side and the bottom of the picturebox.
Code:
Public Class frmMap
Inherits System.Windows.Forms.Form
Private Sub HSBpicMap_Scroll(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.ScrollEventArgs) Handles hsbPicMap.Scroll
picMap.Left = -hsbPicMap.Value
[Code] .....

Sep 1, 2009

I faced a problem that the vertical scrollbar of datagridview will be un-functional.Here are the steps to rebuild the problem:

1. Add a new datagridview component.

2. Add a new timer to set the datasource of datagridview at a regular time. For example, I add following code on the Timer1.Tick event:

Dim v_connDB As New Odbc.OdbcConnection
Dim v_daCA2 As New Odbc.OdbcDataAdapter
Dim v_dsCA2 As New Data.DataSet

[code]....

3. Then I press the down arraw key on the vertical scrollbar with mouse while the datagridview re-bind its datasource, the vertical scrollbar will be un-functional. And the action will be changed to be re-size the datagridview will I press the vertical scrollbar position.So, is it the bug of datagridview? How can I fix it?

Use A Vertical And Horizontal Scrollbar And Have The Arrow Keys?

Jan 14, 2010

I'm having a problem assigning the arrow keys to the right scrolling events.I have a VScrollbar and an HScrollbar. I want the left / right arrow keys to scroll the horizontal bar, and the up / down arrow keys to scroll the vertical bar. The default behaviour seems to be that the first created of the two (VScrollBar or HScrollbar, depending on order of creation) received all arrow key events as a Scroll event. So when I push up / down / left / right, it is my VScrollbar that moves (HScrollbar might move also with the left / right arrow keys, I don't remember). I tried catching the KeyDown event on my form, to manage the left / right / up / down keys myself, but apparently the Scroll events are triggered first...In any case, what would be the "right" way to use a vertical and horizontal scrollbar and have the arrow keys do what they're supposed to do in VB. NET?

Moving Labels Inside A Groupbox Using Vertical Scrollbar?

Jun 9, 2011

I have a load of information on my label in a groupbox on the form there is too much information to be seen in one go so i want to use a vertical scrollbar to move the label up and down inside the groupbox so it can be read.

The issue i'm having is:

1: The label covers the bottom edge of the groupbox (looks a little naff) i need it to fall inside the groupbox if possible.

2: Any movement on the vertical scrollbar seems to send the label in one direction only - so how do i work it so that up moves it up and down moves it down?

Should i use a multiline textbox rather than a label and move the carat?

Vertical Scrollbar Getting Smaller, But No Data Is Shown In The Listbox?

Jan 9, 2009

I have been working on a much larger project and came to a point where I decided threading should be used.It seems in previous version of .Net, a background worker was able to update controls that were were not created on that thread. Now, it doesn't seem to be the case.I basically just began a new small project to try and teach myself the basics.Form1 Consists of A listbox, A progress bar, a label and two buttons, one to start and one to cancel.

imports system.threading
private sub btngo(byval sender as system.object, byval e as system.eventargs) handles btngo.click
pbprogress.minimum = 0[code=....

This code appears to be updating the listbox.I can see the vertical scrollbar getting smaller, but no data is shown in the listbox. The progressbar is also updating properly while that is working, indicating proper background operation.But what it's not doing is this:

1. Label is not updating percentage

2. The form is not free to be used by the user (me)

Selection Of Multiple Folders At A Time / Scrollbar Position?

Jun 1, 2010

A couple of questions about the FolderBrowserDialog in VB .NET Express 2005...
1. How can I make it so this control allows selection of multiple folders at a time?
2. It remembers the folder I selected last time (in the same session), and highlights that folder, which is good, but that selected folder appears near the bottom of the window. Is there a way to make it so the previously selected folder appears in the middle of the window (i.e. the scroll bar is further down the window)? See screen shot attached for how it currently looks when the window opens.

VS 2005 DGV Vert Scrollbar Messing With Listbox Position

As confirmation of the problem I created a small app to test with.

.net - Enabled Scrollbar In A Disabled Textbox For WinForms?

Jun 3, 2012

I'm trying to allow scrolling in a Multiline-TextBox even if the TextBox is set to

textbox.Enabled = False

This is not possible, as the Scrollbar is disabled with the Enabled-Command, too.The default solution here is to set

textbox.ReadOnly = True
textbox.Enabled = True

but this doesn't really do the trick for me. With ReadOnly I can still select the text of a TextBox as well as place the cursor inside of it. But as I have normal (non Multiline-TextBoxes) and other controls on the same form I don't want that to happen. I want to have exactly the same behavior as all the other disabled TextBoxes.

For everything else, like mimic the color of a disabled textbox and so on, there is a legitimate workaround with the ReadOnly-Property, but I coudn't find any for selecting text and placing the cursor.

UPDATE:I tried to use WIN32 API but it didn't work as expected:

Imports System.Windows.Forms
Imports System.Runtime.InteropServices
Public Class TestTextBox

Can't Get Scrollbar On (VB2008)

Jun 30, 2010

I have inherited support for a program written in VB2008

The problem I have is as follows:

Users have a low screen resolution (company policy) and so can't see the bottom of a particular form.

The bottom of the form has buttons that allow them to navigate between its' four pages so they need to be able to see them. This being the case I need to add a scrollbar to the form.

If I try to drag and drop a vscrollbar from the toolbox it just sits there at runtime (you can slide the button on the toolbar up and down but nothing happens regarding scrolling the page.

All the reading I have done seems to point to forms being given scrollbars in accordance to the AutoScroll, AutoScrollMargin and AutoscrollMinSize properties of the Form itself.

By setting these properties I can get scrollbars to appear in the IDE but they are not there at runtime.

I think I'm probably missing something really obvious here but, so far, have been unable to work out what it is.

Cannot Reach Scrollbar's Value

Jan 13, 2011

So, in my vertical scrollbar, the maximum value is 16. In my application, I made a Label to track the scrollbar's value, just for testing purposes. I noticed that when I move the bar to the bottom, the value is 6. And when a [i]release[/i] the button (stop holding it with the mouse), the value becomes 7. Something similar goes when I move the button to the top: It is 1, and when I release the button, it becomes 0. That's a bit weird, but what mainly bugs me is why I cannot reach value 16?
