Customize the scrollbar

To add a custom scrollbar, you need to set the GridScrollBarMode as shared. In order to adjust the size of thumb you need to use MetroThumbSize of scrollersFrame.


//Form Load
//to apply custom scrollbar
this.gridGroupingControl1.TableControl.HScrollBehavior = GridScrollbarMode.Shared;
this.scrollersFrame1.AttachedTo = this.gridGroupingControl1.TableControl;
this.scrollersFrame1.VisualStyle = ScrollBarCustomDrawStyles.Metro;
//to adjust the thumb size of scrollbar
this.scrollersFrame1.MetroThumbSize = new Size(5, this.scrollersFrame1.MetroThumbSize.Height);



'to apply custom scrollbar
Me.gridGroupingControl1.TableControl.HScrollBehavior = GridScrollbarMode.Shared
Me.scrollersFrame1.AttachedTo = Me.gridGroupingControl1.TableControl
Me.scrollersFrame1.VisualStyle = ScrollBarCustomDrawStyles.Metro
'to adjust the thumb size of scrollbar
Me.scrollersFrame1.MetroThumbSize = New Size(5, Me.scrollersFrame1.MetroThumbSize.Height)
