    can you share the code. where did you set scroll :-
    Datagridview or panel. Datagridview not support means you can use around the gridview drag and drop one panel then placed in your gridview placed in panel then set scroll and try them. Mostly scrolling work based on records .

    Since you haven't posted the code I am not sure you use DoubleBuffered property properly or not. I want you to check below sample code and see if you are doing it properly.
    Also if this is not helping you to resolve the issue please post the code you are using.

    There are lot of problem exist in windows form for flicker
    here are some work around
    1. try to set 'DoubleBuffered' property of form to 'true' for all forms.
    2. paste below code snippet in each form, above page load

    protected override CreateParams CreateParams
    CreateParams cp = base.CreateParams;
    cp.ExStyle |= 0x02000000; // WS_EX_COMPOSITED
    return cp;
    //and add below code in form constructor after ' InitializeComponent(); ' method
    // Enable double duffering to stop flickering.
    this.SetStyle(ControlStyles.DoubleBuffer, true);
    this.SetStyle(ControlStyles.AllPaintingInWmPaint, true);
    this.SetStyle(ControlStyles.UserPaint, true);
    this.SetStyle(ControlStyles.SupportsTransparentBackColor, false);
    this.SetStyle(ControlStyles.Opaque, false);

    void dgvprdgrp_CellPainting(object sender, DataGridViewCellPaintingEventArgs e)

    if (e.RowIndex == -1 && e.ColumnIndex > -1)

    e.PaintBackground(e.CellBounds, false);

    Rectangle r2 = e.CellBounds;

    r2.Y += e.CellBounds.Height / 2;

    r2.Height = e.CellBounds.Height / 2;


    e.Handled = true;
