VB: How to prevent MouseWheel msgs from auto-generating scrollbar msgs?

8 New Member
I have a VirtualMode DataGridView that bogs down on using the mouse wheel to scroll and gets a backlog of messages such that it continues to scroll long after ceasing to turn the mouse wheel. This is because instead of generating one scrollbar message for each mouse wheel message it generates a separate scrollbar message for each line move, forcing the entire screen to refresh with each line added.

I've put in code to scroll multiple lines only once for each mouse wheel click, but I'm still having to shunt out all of the extra scrollbar messages and it is not easy. If I get out of sync as to how many scrollbar messages to shunt the scrolling goes out of whack. It would be far easier if I just didn't have to worry about shunting these useless messages.

So how do you prevent mouse wheel messages from creating scrollbar messages?

You can try overrideing the WndProc function on your form. And parse out the mouse wheel messages?

I'm not getting any scrollbar messages in the form's WndProc function (nor any mouse wheel messages) so as I turn the mouse wheel I get no output in the immediate window from the following code:

Protected Overrides Sub WndProc(ByRef m As Message)
Debug.WriteLine (m.Msg)
MyBase.WndProc( m)
End Sub

Moving the mouse around does give me messages.

Well I don't know what that Debug call does, nothing ever showed up in my window.

I used Console.Writeli ne and saw them all.

MouseWheel is when m.Msg is 0x20a if that helps.

I was able to get them by deriving a class from DataGridView and overriding it's WndProc.

Is it possible to disable the mouse wheel WITHOUT using a DLL? I've looked at Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 278379 (http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;278379), which explains how to create a DLL and implement code to disable the mouse wheel, as well as Mr. Lebans' code in MouseWheelHookA2K.zip (http://www.lebans.com/mousewheelonoff.htm), but both require a DLL. Sure, it's easy enough to run:

Hi all, I searched the archives and found everyone happy with Stephen's MouseWheel On/Off code except for those with subforms.

Seems the mousewheel isn't controlled in earlier versions like A97 or 2000. So you can accidentally use the mousewheel to scroll to the next record in an unbound form. And that can cause Access to hang-up, with an unbound form. I had this little popup box that was an alternative to editing text in a memo field. And every now and then I'd forget about the mousewheel problem and just habitually scrool as if editing in U-edit or something....

I have a data entry form. I am trying to avoid users accidentally using the mouse wheel and saving an incomplete record (or saving record that skips the validation routine).

It also sets the boolean variable to false. It works most of the time, but some...
