Adding a srcollbar to a userform

I've setup a userform and filled it with textboxes and labels at runtime.

The number of controls that fill the userform change depending on user input.

The number of controls can get pretty long so instead of changing the height of the userform I leave the userform height constant and from the userform properties I select
KeepScrollsBarsVisible = 2 - fmScrollBarsVertical and ScrollBars = 2 - fmScrollBarsVertical.

I have also tried playing with the ScrollHeight and ScrollWidth properties.

When the userform is run the place for the scrollbar and the arrows at either end are visible but the scrollbar itself is not.

How do I get the useform to show the scrollbar so the user can scroll down the userform?

Hello SassMan,

VB Forms do not support scroll bars. You can add a scroll bar and after some very complicated code get scrolling controls that scroll with the scroll bar. I dont recommend this, it will take a long time to code all this up.

What you should consider is a tab control. You can dynamically add/remove tabs for more "form space"
