What about this example (code for the MDI Child):

Private Sub Form_DblClick()
  Me.Top = 0
  Me.Left = 0
End Sub

Try use SendMessage API:

use the SendMessage API to scroll the form to top:

http://www.mvps.org/vbnet/code/subclass/lvscrollbars.htm

Basically, what you should look is the:

Private Const SB_LINEUP = 0
Private Const SB_LINEDOWN = 1
Private Const SB_PAGEUP = 2
Private Const SB_PAGEDOWN = 3
Private Const SB_THUMBPOSITION = 4
Private Const SB_THUMBTRACK = 5
Private Const SB_TOP = 6
Private Const SB_BOTTOM = 7
Private Const SB_ENDSCROLL = 8

Private Declare Function SendMessage Lib "user32" _
  Alias "SendMessageA" _
 (ByVal hWnd As Long, _
  ByVal wMsg As Long, _
  ByVal wParam As Long, _
  lParam As Any) As Long

and

Call SendMessage(ListView2.hWnd, _
                            WM_VSCROLL, _
                            wParam, _
                            ByVal 0&)
Modify the parameter to

Call SendMessage(FormName.hWnd, _
                            WM_VSCROLL, _
                            B_BOTTOM , _
                            ByVal 0&)


Hope this helps
