C# WinForms: My DataGridView does not grow properly

I have a DataGridView that grows up to a point, as new rows are added. But then it stops growing and the new rows are added but not visible. There is no scroll bar, which is the primary problem.

I have on problem with the DataGridView growing up to a point where it grows no longer. But at that point I need a scroll to appear so the user can scroll down to see all those new rows added.

What property am I missing?

DataGridView1.ScrollBars = ScrollBars.Both
or manually set the scrollbars property of the datagridview from the designer mode to "both"

It was already set to Both.
check if columns property Frozen is set to True
Where do I find that property? I construct the columns in code, but use the Designer to set the properties of the DataGridView.

I saw the AutoScroll property of the Form was false, so Ii set it to true.

My other problem is to get the DataGridView to understand what is it's containing object. I place it indie a Tab Control and it ignores that. I put in inside a Group Box and it ignores that as well. I will post that other question.

Below is the bigger problem: I can not get the DataGridView to appear anywhere near it's supposed to be, according to the Designer.'s-involved-in-using-tabs-on-a-WinForms-dialog.html?anchorAnswerId=37993046#a37993046
