I need my forms vscrollbar to be at the top position.
I'm creating a new form at runtime on a new tab (tabcontrol).  My tablelayoutpanel vscrollbar is at the top position, but my forms vscrollbar position  is all the way down to expose the bottom most portion of the form.  My code:

        MyForm = New PDF_ML_Form
        MyForm.FormBorderStyle = Windows.Forms.FormBorderStyle.None
        MyForm.Dock = DockStyle.None
        MyForm.TopLevel = False
        MyForm.Anchor = AnchorStyles.Left
        MyForm.Anchor = AnchorStyles.Top
        MyForm.AutoScrollPosition = New Point(1, 1)
        Dim s As Int16 = MyForm.Width
        MyForm.Location = New Point((s - Val(PDF_ML_Form.PDF_ML_Cust_Name_txt.Text)) / 2 - 800, 4)
        MyForm.Anchor = AnchorStyles.Left
        ' Set location & size of main tab container
        MyForm.Size = New Size(MyForm.Width, PDF_ML_Form.Height + 80)
        MyForm.AutoScrollPosition = New Point(1, 1)
        myTabPage.Controls.Add(MyForm)
Thank You

Try setting the AutoScrollPosition back to (0, 0) in the SHOWN() event of the Form:


Public Class YourFormHere
 
    Private Sub Form1_Shown(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Shown
        Me.AutoScrollPosition = New Point(0, 0)
    End Sub
 
End Class

Its not changing the top and this is to small of a thing to take up your time with.  I'm removing the form vscrollbar and making my tablelayoutpanel smaller so it fits on a form without the need for a scroll.  Thank You
