How about something like this

#include <GuiConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <GuiListView.au3>

$iLastPos = IniRead("Test.ini", "Scroll", "VPos", 0)

$GUI = GUICreate("Test Script", 600, 200)

$ListView = GUICtrlCreateListView("Col          ", 20, 20, 40, 160)
$hListView = GUICtrlGetHandle($ListView)
_ControlToRoundedRectangle($ListView,21,0,40, 160,0)
$ListView2 = GUICtrlCreateListView("Col          ", 280, 20, 260, 160)
_ControlToRoundedRectangle($ListView2,0,0,240, 160,0)
$hListView2 = GUICtrlGetHandle($ListView2)

For $i = 1 To 80
    GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("Item " & $i, $ListView)
    GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("Next " & $i, $ListView2)


While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
            Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
    if _GUICtrlListView_GetTopIndex($hListView)<_GUICtrlListView_GetTopIndex($hListView2) then 
            _GUICtrlListView_Scroll($hListView2, 0, -12)
    elseif _GUICtrlListView_GetTopIndex($hListView)>_GUICtrlListView_GetTopIndex($hListView2) then 
            _GUICtrlListView_Scroll($hListView2, 0, +12)

Func _ControlToRoundedRectangle($aControl,$X1,$Y1,$X2,$Y2,$X3)
    Local $l
    Local $handle = GUICtrlGetHandle($aControl)
    $l = DllCall("gdi32.dll","int","CreateRoundRectRgn","int",$X1,"int",$Y1,"int",$X2,"int",$Y2,"int",$X3,"int",$X3)

Take a look at this thread where I developed a stand-alone scrollbar for another member. I hope it might work for you too. :mellow:
