Need to add a v-scroll bar to a form

I dragged the item over but have no idea how to make it work. I looked on the web and didn't find what I was looking for, just need to scroll the form not a textbox or picturebox. Any ideas on how I can get this to work? Thank you.

Ok....the scrollbars will still appear automatically if there is a control outside of your forms visible area.

(given that AutoScroll = True)

You are saying that you have controls out of the visible area and the scrollbars are not appearing?  If this is the case then we probably need a better description of your application and/or the forms layout.

Don't use a ScrollBar...

Set the AutoScroll property of the Form to True:

When appropriate, Scrollbar(s) will appear on your form automatically...

I did set the autoscroll on the form control to "True" to work, but if a user had the form "restored down" it will not show even though there are stuff not being viewed is there any go around for that or not really worth it?

Thanks for your help.
