Suppress Vertical Scroll when resized form receives focus

Hi,

When my main form is visible on the desktop, and I re-size it to some smaller size, thereby showing the Vertical + Horizontal Scroll bars (Auto Scroll was set to true for the form).  Then using the Vertical Scroll bar that's now visible, if I manually scroll the current form view say half way down to show me a certain region of the form that I want to monitor for incoming data.

And then...

After the form loses focus and then when the form receives focus back, it automatically scrolls the contents of the form to bring whatever control within the form has focus (basically brings that focused control into view).  

I want to suppress this automatic "when form comes into focus and then scrolls the contents so that the focused control is in view..." thing...

How do I do that...

You're bang on here....

Here is the actual solution to the issue:

Protected Overrides Function ScrollToControl(ByVal activeControl As Control) As Point
        Return DisplayRectangle.Location
End Function
