here is the oldschool way to do it. It will probably also be possible with caret positions or something, using .NET

This is the form code. Put two richtextbox's on the form and set the vscroll event for the first textbox to the myRichTextBox1_VScroll method.

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.ComponentModel;
using System.Data;
using System.Drawing;
using System.Text;
using System.Windows.Forms;
using System.Runtime.InteropServices;
namespace RichTextBoxScroll
  public enum ScrollBarType : uint
    SbHorz = 0,
    SbVert = 1,
    SbCtl = 2,
    SbBoth = 3
  public enum Message : uint
    WM_VSCROLL = 0x0115
  public enum ScrollBarCommands : uint
  public partial class Form1 : Form
    [DllImport( "User32.dll" )]
    public extern static int GetScrollPos( IntPtr hWnd, int nBar );
    [DllImport( "User32.dll" )]
    public extern static int SendMessage( IntPtr hWnd, uint msg, IntPtr wParam, IntPtr lParam );
    public Form1()
    private void myRichTextBox1_VScroll( object sender, EventArgs e )
      int nPos = GetScrollPos( richTextBox1.Handle, (int)ScrollBarType.SbVert );
      nPos <<= 16;
      uint wParam = (uint)ScrollBarCommands.SB_THUMBPOSITION | (uint)nPos;
      SendMessage( richTextBox2.Handle, (int)Message.WM_VSCROLL, new IntPtr( wParam ), new IntPtr( 0 ) );

you just need to set Me.Panel1.AutoScroll = True and put height and width of panel equals form height and width

Panel is used as the container of the other constrols..

and as you insert control in the panel , scrollbar will be added based on the size..

So set the AutoScrollbar= true
