Windows Forms Scroll Bar hangs up if I scroll it to the right. It won't react to my manipulations afterwards. Also, if I set ScrollBar.Minimum to a negative value, it will act crazy. However, if I hover the mouse over the scroll bar and use the scroll wheel, the scroll bar will unfreeze.
Attached is the test project:
Project Type: Visual Studio Extension
To launch the window, go to View -> Other Windows -> Test Tool Windows

Hi L'Yosha
You have set min and max defaults of 0 and 2500 with a smallchange of 1 (Default). This could make the arrows of the scroll bar make it seem like its "hung". One thing i would suggest is to debug the "scroll" event of you scroll bar and keep note of the Value of the scroll bar on the various events, especially when the scrollbar appears to be hung. Can you report what you find?

Are you creating your tool window to be able to support VS 2008, VS 2010 and VS2012? One suggestion if you only need to support 2010 and 2012 is to create a WPF Toolwindow using the 2010 or 2012 VSSDK template.

Please, take a look at my test project. It is not about Windows Forms app (where the case works correct), it is about toolwindow's scroll bar in Visual Studio 2010\2012 extension only. In Visual Studio 2008 this case works properly.

Thank you for your feedback. The issue that you have reported is actually by design.
These events are filtered out from the property grid because they are considered advanced.
