I dont want to use "scroll bar control" What I mean whether any API fuctions are there which will give automatic scroll bar (as it comes in listbox) if current window (i.e form) is enlarged to larger than the current screen size ?

If possible, later I want to take print out of that window, after capturing it to clip board.

"if current window (i.e form) is enlarged to larger than the current screen size"

VB won't let you do that.

Hello Ccaraf,
it is possible. Check giving this in Form_Load event    me.height = 15000.
Keep form's window status = 0(i.e normal)

example: in Form_Load

Height = 20000 'had to use a larger number as my screen is 1280x1024
Debug.Print Height
'gives 15540, not 20000. VB does not allow form heights significantly greater than the screen resolution.
