Why not just draw it on your form? Is simple enough to do. Then it will scroll with the rest of your drawing.

You  can try the slider control as it is located in the common control library. (project/components/Microsoft Common Controls)

or you can go to www.component-source.com.

The slider control is not really suitable. I tried to go to www.component-source.com but I kept getting another site www.arrow.com ?
