SfScrollFrame sfScrollFrame1 = new SfScrollFrame();
ListView listView1 = new System.Windows.Forms.ListView(); 
 this.OrderID = ((System.Windows.Forms.ColumnHeader)(new System.Windows.Forms.ColumnHeader()));
this.CustomerID = ((System.Windows.Forms.ColumnHeader)(new System.Windows.Forms.ColumnHeader()));
this.columnHeader1 = ((System.Windows.Forms.ColumnHeader)(new System.Windows.Forms.ColumnHeader()));
this.Quantity = ((System.Windows.Forms.ColumnHeader)(new System.Windows.Forms.ColumnHeader()));
this.sfScrollFrame1 = new Syncfusion.WinForms.Scroll.SfScrollFrame();
// listView1
this.listView1.Columns.AddRange(new System.Windows.Forms.ColumnHeader[] {
this.listView1.Location = new System.Drawing.Point(30, 29);
this.listView1.Name = "listView1";
this.listView1.Size = new System.Drawing.Size(379, 285);
this.listView1.TabIndex = 6;
this.listView1.UseCompatibleStateImageBehavior = false;
this.listView1.View = System.Windows.Forms.View.Details;
// sfScrollFrame1
this.sfScrollFrame1.Control = this.listView1;

Through code

To programmatically attach the SfScrollFrame to a control, set the Control property to the appropriate value.

//Attach SfScrollFrame to the list view control.
this.sfScrollFrame1.Control = listView1;

Programmatic scrolling

The scroll frame can be programmatically scrolled by setting the Value property of the corresponding scrollbar.

// To scroll the control to the specific position.
this.sfScrollFrame1.HorizontalScrollBar.Value = 100;
this.sfScrollFrame1.VerticalScrollBar.Value = 100;

Changing the SmallChange value

The scrolling speed of the horizontal and vertical scrollbars of the SfScrollFrame can be customized by setting the SmallChange property to increase the scroll speed for the min or max button click of the scrollbar.

//Set Horizontal & vertical scrollbar small change
this.sfScrollFrame1.HorizontalScrollBar.SmallChange = 10;
this.sfScrollFrame1.VerticalScrollBar.SmallChange = 10;
