    {
      int MINWIDTH = 200;
      int BORDERWIDTH = SystemInformation.Border3DSize.Width;
      int SCROLLBARWIDTH = SystemInformation.VerticalScrollBarWidth;

      SCROLLINFO si = new SCROLLINFO();
      si.cbSize = Marshal.SizeOf( si );
      si.fMask = (int) ScrollInfoMask.SIF_RANGE;
      GetScrollInfo( RichTextBox1.Handle, (int) ScrollBarDirection.SB_HORZ, ref si );

      int iWidth = si.nMax - si.nMin + 2 * BORDERWIDTH + SCROLLBARWIDTH + 2;    
      return Math.Max( MINWIDTH, iWidth );
    }
}

VB Sample Code:

    Private Function GetScrollBarPageSize(ByVal hWnd As IntPtr, ByVal fnBar As Integer) As Integer
    Dim si As New SCROLLINFO
    With si
        .cbSize = Len(si)
        .fMask = ScrollInfoMask.SIF_PAGE
    End With
    Dim lRet As Integer = GetScrollInfo(hWnd, fnBar, si)
    If lRet <> 0 Then
        Return si.nPage
    Else
        Return -1
    End If
