Scrolling Mode

The Pivot Grid control supports two scrolling modes: ScrollingMode.Pixel and ScrollingMode.Line. The default is Pixel. This mode allows end-users to scroll data columns/rows smoothly, on per-pixel basis. In the Line scrolling mode, rows and columns are scrolled on a 'record-by-record' basis.

To specify the scrolling mode, use the PivotGridControl.ScrollingMode property.
