Creating Scrollable MDI Child Forms
Posted on 2000-02-29
I am creating a Visual Basic 6 MDI application that is made up of numerous MDI child forms. I would like for the child forms to have a vertical scroll bar that allows the user to scroll to view hard to see data. I looked at the answer to question 10050026 from clsmaster and tried the code and it didn't work for me. My vertical scroll bar kept shrinking to the top of my form. In clsmaster's response there are several things that are unclear. For instance, when he/she says set the tag property of the control to the top property on the control which control is he referring to? Set the scroll bar control's tag property to the top property of the scroll bar or the form? Also, there's no such thing as on local error resume next. If someone could provide me with code that will allow me to add vertical and horizontal scroll bars to mdi child forms within a mdi environment to produce scrolling that is similiar to Microsoft Word, I would greatly appreciately.
