How to enable scrollbar even though the controls inside are disabled

I have a form and inside the form I have an

UltraExpandableGroupBoxPanel
which holds some controls. Eg:

Me.UltraExpandableGroupBoxPanel.AutoScroll = True
Me.UltraExpandableGroupBoxPanel.Controls.Add(Me.ctlCars)
Me.UltraExpandableGroupBoxPanel.Controls.Add(Me.ctlPlanes)
Me.UltraExpandableGroupBoxPanel.Dock = System.Windows.Forms.DockStyle.Fill
Me.UltraExpandableGroupBoxPanel.Name = "UltraExpandableGroupBoxPanel"
Me.UltraExpandableGroupBoxPanel.Size = New System.Drawing.Size(500, 1000)


The
AutoScroll
property is set to
True
so it can show the scrollbar. When the two controls are disabled, the scrollbar is also disabled and I cannot move the scrollbar to view the information from the bottom on the form. Is there a way to enable the scrollbar even though the controls are disabled?

Instead of making control disabled, try by making it read only and display control in grey color so that it looks similar to disabled mode.
