I don't think you can, but if you really needed to do it you could create your own custom scrollbar using gdi (there are some example in google),
then scroll the datagrid that way.

ID: 17773714 has a number of custom scrollbars available. Go to and enter "scrollbar" in the search box, and you'll get a bunch. I can't vouch for any of them.
