I have mutliple forms in my project and I want to make sure each one has autoscroll set to true.  Is there a way to do this with code versus opening each one and setting the autoscroll (or any other thing) individually?

Thanks!

You can set it programmatically wherever you show those forms. Not sure which one would be more tedious though.

Couldn't I create a button and do a loop through all the forms in the application, setting it to make autoscroll = true?

No because its an instance property not a static property so you only set it on an instance of a form. If all you forms are already open then yes you can do this.
