Mouse Wheel Loose First Record

P: n/a
jv
I have quite a few of continuous form and subform where I do allow
scroll bars. I run into problems with the mouse wheel whenever the
data on the form does not take up the whole page. In this instance,
whenever a user uses the mouse wheel to scroll down, the first record
disappears off the screen and they can't get it back unless they click
on the Refresh button or Page Up. The mouse wheel never scroll back up
to the first record. However, this problem does not occur if the data
takes up the whole page.

Does any one know how to fix this problem without disabling scroll bars
and mouse wheel?

Thanks.

AFAIK, it's a bug with no workaround, except to tell users about it.

I included the following in the User Manual I recently wrote for a database
app. I placed it in a prominent box with a red banner, so that it was
obvious.

"Bug Warning:
If the scroll wheel is used to scroll down in a continuous form in which
there is blank space between the last record and the form footer, scrolling
up will not return the top record into view. Use the up-arrow key, or click
the up-arrow at the top of the vertical scroll-bar on the right-hand side of
the window, to restore this record into view."

Note that the user does not need to do a Refresh or Page Up - other
mouse/keyboard navigation methods (such as those which I tell my users
about) work fine; the only thing that doesn't work is the scroll-wheel.

I also suggest, if you are not doing it already, that youdisable the
scroll-wheel on non-continuous forms, as users may shift between records
without even noticing if they happen to move the wheel. Why there is no
preference setting to turn of the scroll-wheel in a database is beyond me!!!

HTH,

Rob
