Removing Scroll Bars from a single Splitter Window Pane

How do you remove scroll bars from a single pane of a splitter window?  I have a MDI application set up with one of the child windows as a splitter window.  There are four panes in my splitter window and I want to remove the vertical and horizontal scroll bars from one pane and not the rest.  Also the view I want to remove the scroll bars from is a  CFormView that has a grid control on it with my own set of scroll bars.  Thus, I have a redundant set of scroll bars, but I want to keep my own and not the window frame's scroll bars.  The MDI child windows are also maximized at all times and have the WS_SYMENU feature removed.

Thanks for your help.

CFormView is derived from CScrollView, so scrolling is built in to CFormView by inheritance.  I am assuming that you are using static splitters so that your CFormView pane can not be resized.

One way to solve your problem is to always set the scroll size to the window size.  Use ClassWizard to create the OnSize method in response to the WM_SIZE message.  Add the following line of code:

   SetScrollSizes(MM_TEXT, CSize(cx, cy));

If you will never resize, just put this line in OnInitDialog in response to WM_INITDIALOG:

   CRect clientRect;
   GetClientRect(clientRect);
   SetScrollSizes(MM_TEXT, clientRect.Size());

This should do the trick.

Here is an even better way.

In OnSize() add the line

   EnableScrollBarCtrl(SB_BOTH,FALSE);

instead of what I recommended before.

Best yet, in the OnSize() method, bypass the CFormView::Onsize(...) and call the CView::OnSize() method.  This works just fine and is the most efficient.  Sorry this answer has been incremental.

Your first two solutions didn't seem to work, but the third solution solved my problem.  Thanks for the tip.

Glad to be of service.  I used the ViewEx MFC sample to experiment with in seeking the solution.  I also looked in the MFC source code for CFormView and CScrollView to figure out how they handled scrolling.
