Is there an EASY way to make a scrollable form? I am generally new to VB (I know all of the basic coding ie. loops, counting, IF statements etc) but was wondering if there was a FREE, easy-to-use custom control or an easy coding solution :)
Thx in advance..

No picture control. Only one scroll bar. See code below.

VERSION 5.00
Begin VB.Form frmScroll

   ClientLeft      =   60

'Explanation:
'   1. Start out by making the form big enough to show
'      all the controls of the form.
'   2. Make a note of the height of the form.
'   3. Resize the form to the display size.
'   4. Make a note of the height of the form.
'   5. Place a vertical scroll bar control on the right side of the form.
'   6. The Max property of the scroll bar should be set to the difference
'      between the height of the full form (2) less the height of the
'      displayed form (4).
