Description pacholick 2012-03-11 18:11:00 UTC
e.ScrollOrientation is HorizontalScroll even if I'm scrolling vertically
e.OldValue is always -1
e.NewValue is correct

This bug has not been fixed in 
Mono JIT compiler version 3.2.8 (Debian 3.2.8+dfsg-4ubuntu1)

So I am having trouble with Scrollable Controls:

private void panel1_Scroll(object sender, ScrollEventArgs e)
	if (e.ScrollOrientation == ScrollOrientation.HorizontalScroll)
		dest.HorizontalScroll.Value = e.NewValue;
	else if (e.ScrollOrientation == ScrollOrientation.VerticalScroll)
		dest.VerticalScroll.Value = e.NewValue;

	this.Text = e.ScrollOrientation + "";
	//Mono Bug!!!

If you want to synchronize Scroll Positions of two controls, simply write:

private void panel1_Scroll(object sender, ScrollEventArgs e)
    panel2.HorizontalScroll.Value = panel1.HorizontalScroll.Value;
    panel2.VerticalScroll.Value = panel1.VerticalScroll.Value;
private void panel2_Scroll(object sender, ScrollEventArgs e)
    panel1.HorizontalScroll.Value = panel2.HorizontalScroll.Value;
    panel1.VerticalScroll.Value = panel2.VerticalScroll.Value;

If you want to use the e.ScrollOrientation:

private ScrollOrientation? CheckOrientation(ScrollableControl dest, ScrollEventArgs e)
	if (oldH == null || oldV == null)
		oldH = dest.HorizontalScroll.Value;
		oldV = dest.VerticalScroll.Value;
		return null;

	ScrollOrientation? o = null;

	int newH = dest.HorizontalScroll.Value;
	int newV = dest.VerticalScroll.Value;

	//You could only click on one scroll bar at one time.
	if (newH - oldH != 0)
		o = ScrollOrientation.HorizontalScroll;
	else if (newV - oldV != 0)
		o = ScrollOrientation.VerticalScroll;

	oldH = oldV = null;
	return o;

int? oldH = null;
int? oldV = null;

private void panel1_Scroll(object sender, ScrollEventArgs e)
	this.Text =
	CheckOrientation(panel1, e) + "";

But this piece of code is not perfect. It requires user to scroll for a longer distance, and it is slow.
