If I understand you correctly, you want a form that has a scrollable display area.  I have not seen such a form, but creating a control for it is relatively simple.

To do this, simply add a picturebox (named picScrollPanel, borderless) into the form, add horizontal and vertical scroll bars (named scrHorizontal and scrVertical, tabstop property=false) on the bottom and right, then add a textbox (named txtHideCorner, frameless, background=buttonface, text blank) to the lower right corner to hide that spot.

In your form's resize procedure:

Private Sub Form_Resize()
  scrHorizontal.Move 0, Me.ScaleHeight - scrHorizontal.Height, Me.ScaleWidth - scrVertical.Width
  scrVertical.Move Me.ScaleWidth - scrVertical.Width, 0, scrVertical.Width, Me.ScaleHeight - scrHorizontal.Height
  txtHideSpot.Move scrVertical.Left, scrHorizontal.Top, scrVertical.Width, scrHorizontal.Height
  picScrollWindow.Move 0, 0, 'scrVertical.Left, scrHorizontal.Top' no need to resize the picturebox or the scrolling effect won't work!
 
  ' Set scroll bar max
  lScrollMax = Me.ScaleWidth - picScrollWindow.Width
  If lScrollMax <= 0 Then
    scrHorizontal.Max = -lScrollMax
  Else
    scrHorizontal.Max = scrHorizontal.Min
  End If
 
  lScrollMax = Me.ScaleHeight - picScrollWindow.Height
  If lScrollMax <= 0 Then
    scrVertical.Max = -lScrollMax
  Else
    scrVertical.Max = scrVertical.Min
  End If
End Sub

At design time, place all controls into the picturebox, as large as you'd like.

Then add the following code to make the scrolling work:

Private Sub scrHorizontal_Change()
  picScrollWindow.Left = -scrHorizontal.Value
End Sub

Private Sub scrHorizontal_Scroll()
  scrHorizontal_Change
End Sub

Private Sub scrVertical_Change()
  picScrollWindow.Top = -scrVertical.Value
End Sub

Private Sub scrVertical_Scroll()
  scrVertical_Change
End Sub
