Examples

The following code example uses the derived class, Panel. The example evaluates the location of a text box and changes the appearance and behavior of its parent container, the panel control. The example requires that you have created an instance of a Panel control, TextBox, and Button. Place the box on the panel so that it overlaps at least one of the panel's edges. Call this subprocedure on the click of a button to see the difference in the panel's behavior and appearance.

void MySub()
{
   /* If the text box is outside the panel's bounds, 
          turn on auto-scrolling and set the margin. */
   if ( text1->Location.X > panel1->Location.X || text1->Location.Y > panel1->Location.Y )
   {
      panel1->AutoScroll = true;

      /* If the AutoScrollMargin is set to 
                less than (5,5), set it to 5,5. */
      if ( panel1->AutoScrollMargin.Width < 5 || panel1->AutoScrollMargin.Height < 5 )
      {
         panel1->SetAutoScrollMargin( 5, 5 );
      }
   }
}
private void MySub()
 {
    /* If the text box is outside the panel's bounds, 
       turn on auto-scrolling and set the margin. */
    if (text1.Location.X > panel1.Location.X ||
     text1.Location.Y > panel1.Location.Y)
    {
       panel1.AutoScroll = true;
       /* If the AutoScrollMargin is set to 
          less than (5,5), set it to 5,5. */
       if(panel1.AutoScrollMargin.Width < 5 ||
        panel1.AutoScrollMargin.Height < 5)
       {
          panel1.SetAutoScrollMargin(5, 5);
       }
    }
 }
 
Private Sub MySub()
    ' If the text box is outside the panel's bounds,
    ' turn on auto-scrolling and set the margin. 
    If (text1.Location.X > panel1.Location.X) Or _
        (text1.Location.Y > panel1.Location.Y) Then
        
        panel1.AutoScroll = True            
        ' If the AutoScrollMargin is set to
        ' less than (5,5), set it to 5,5. 
        If (panel1.AutoScrollMargin.Width < 5) Or _
            (panel1.AutoScrollMargin.Height < 5) Then
            
            panel1.SetAutoScrollMargin(5, 5)
        End If
    End If
End Sub

Remarks

The margin sets the width and height of the border around each control. This margin is used to determine when scroll bars are needed on the container and where to scroll to when a control is selected.

Note

If a negative number is passed in as the x or y values, the value will be reset to 0.
