How to disable mouse scroll in combobox?


I have a problem with combobox. On my form is many comboboxes and when I select same option and use my mouse roll, combobox change to next value. How to disable mouse roller? I tried to change focus on another combo but it isn't good solution because you again cannot scroll page but change option in combobox. I also tried to change focus to parent -> combobox.parent.focus() but if combo is on bottom of the page view is centered and I lose current position of scrollbar. Any idea??

Click anywhere outside of your combo boxes before mouse-wheel scrolling.
That's the way it's been for years now, you've never noticed?
(I've had it change radio-button values on me...has caused me some troubles when filling out online forms)

Ok I see your point, I thought you were in a webpage.

Don't see a good way to stop it, it seems to be an OS thing, maybe you can capture the windows Message saying scroll and stop it I dunno.

Why are you making a windows application that SCROLLs....nobody likes to scroll.
