Remarks

Applies To: EditBox | Form | Grid

ScrollBars is ignored for the _SCREEN system variable. For more information, see _SCREEN System Variable.

Scroll bars, if enabled, display automatically when the form, grid, or edit box contains more information than can be displayed in the space provided. The Scrollbars property setting is evaluated for a form when the form is instantiated.

Tip:
If you want to control the size of the scroll bar at run time, specify a non-zero value for nType.

Note:
Values of nType greater than 0 require more memory to accommodate the possible use of the SaveAs method. For more information, see SaveAs Method. To save memory, specify nType = 0.
