C# richtextbox how to prevent a scrollbar ?

dolfijn3000 asked:

Open original thread
so im making an application with textboxes. I dont want the textbox to be scrollable and that it gets bigger when new text is added. everything works fine with how i coded it. there is only one problem. when you keep typing without making a new line. the textbox does not become bigger and a scrollbar appears.

What I have tried:

i tried to detect when the text is at the end of the textbox and add a new line then. but i could not get it to work properly.
