Mouse Scroll Stop

P: 67
Hi All

I want to stop the scroll wheel on the mouse. I have looked through the forum and downloaded the file from MouseWheelOnOff. I have entered the code

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. Private Sub Form_Load() 
  2.    'Turn off Mouse Scroll 
  3.     blRet = MouseWheelOFF 
  4. End Sub 
  5.  
to my form and imported the modMouseHook. I have the .dll in the same folder as the db and it does not disable the mouse wheel. Have i missed something?

Regards
Wayne

Did you put in the code to turn the mousewheel back on when you exit the current session? Did you load the latest version...A2K+?

Also, the code is supposed to be loaded only once per session. You've placed the code in the form_load event instead of behind a button as shown. Does your form get loaded more than once during a session?

Hi puppydogbuddy
Yes to your first question. For your second question, i have just tried it with a button and it still doesn't work.

I have read that you might have to reference the .dll file. When i try this it it fails.

Anymore ideas?

Hi Wayne,
Leban's says the latest version contains an optional parameter to turn the wheel off for subforms. His instructions say that you have to uninstall all previous versions of the Dll. Have you installed the latest version....and did you set the optional parameter? If you can't identify and set the optional parameter Leban's mentioned, I would uninstall the dll you have now, go to Leban's web page, and download and re-install the latest A2K version.

That's good to know, PDB! Didn't know Lebans had updated it with the option. I've used it for years without problems, but, of course, I'm still using the version I downloaded years ago!
