mouse scrolling problem

P: n/a

Hi,
I found in these forums that one solution to stop the mouse wheel
scrolling is:
http://support.microsoft.com/default...b;en-us;278379

I have a main form on which there is a tabctrl. One of the tab pages
contains a subform with another tabctrl with subforms.

Anyhow I use the code from microsoft(with the dll file) with the main
form and that works fine. When I use it with the first subform it won't
let me access the tabctrl or any of the records on the subform? I can't
type anything. I checked the properties and everything seems unlocked
and all the allow properties are set to yes...

Has anyone seen something like this before?

Thanks

Hi
I expect it is because the tab control (which in the old days used to be
an external control) is also subclassing the mouse.
I'm surprised that MS are encouraging users to use this sort of code!

That solution does not work with Subforms. If you scroll down to the
older solution on my MouseHook web page you will find a modified version
of the the KB code that works with multiple forms and subforms.
