I have a C# program where I create and display a bitmap on a form. Sometimes the bitmap is too wide to fit on the form. How can I add scroll bars to access the whole bitmap?

There are scroll bar controls in the Toolbox. Then you can handle the movement of the scroll bars and make tne needed changes to the picture.

Or put the bitmap control in a panel with scroll bars. Then resize the bitmap control to be as big as the picture itself. Then the panel will automatically show the scroll bars.

When I selected scroll bars from the Toolbox they seemed to only apply to a panel. How can they be made to apply to the form? How can I put the bitmap in a panel?

What control do you currently use to put the bitmap in? PictureBox?

If yes, put a panel on the form, assign scroll bars to it, then put the picture box inside the panel. Then tell the picture box to resize itself based on the image (property SizeMode set to AutoSize). This should do the whole work
