For qns 1-3
Put the GridView inside a code div or a Panel control.
1. If you use in div
<div style="vertical-align top; height: 152px; overflow:auto;width:800px;">
       <asp:GridView ID="myGridView" runat="server" AllowPaging="True" AllowSorting="True"  OnRowCreated="myGridView_RowCreated">

2. If you use Panel
<asp:Panel ID="myGridViewPanel" runat="server" ScrollBars="Vertical">
    <asp:GridView ID="myGridView" runat="server" AllowPaging="True" AllowSorting="True"  OnRowCreated="myGridView_RowCreated">

For qn 4.
/// <summary>
/// Occurs when a row is created in the grid view control.
/// </summary>
protected void myGridView_RowCreated(object sender, System.Web.UI.WebControls.GridViewRowEventArgs e)
    if (myGridView.DataSource != null)
        lblRecord.Text = ((IList)myGridView.DataSource).Count.ToString(); // Assuming that your GridView is binded to List collection.

I hope this will help you well.

According to this:

DataGridView - Scrollbars (MSDN)[^]

"Regardless of the value of this property, scroll bars are shown only when they are needed. Use this property to prevent scroll bars from appearing. This is useful, for example, when you want to provide an alternative user interface (UI) for scrolling."

You should be getting the scrollbar if the number of records displayed in the DataGridView go beyond the size of the grid itself on the display.

Asp.Net grid view does not have a scrollbars property. :(

Okay but my point is that even if the property isn't present I think it automatically adds them. I've used DataGridView in a ASP .NET Web app and I believe that I did see a scrollbar when the number of records went past the size I defined for the control or so!
