I want to have a scrollable container in VB.  Lets say I am having 40 text boxes to display in a SSTab control and my tab height is constrained by some other factors.  So I need a scrollable container (similar to Java's scrollpane). How can I implement it in VB ?

There is a example project showing how to do a scrollable form with these real win32 scrollbars at...
