Mouse Scroll Wheel

Does anyone know of a way to disable the mouse scroll wheel when a control
such as a combobox or listbox has focus? I ask this, because I have an
extremely large data entry form with vertical scrollbars. I have found that
when a user scrolls the wheel in an attempt to scroll the form down, a
combobox or listbox will scroll instead (if it has focus) thus changing the
user's original selection.

Thanks for any help you can provide!

Hi Mark,
Here is a code sample for a listbox which is used to disable mouse
wheel scrolling:

Private Sub ListBox1_MouseW heel(ByVal sender As System.Object, _
ByVal e As System.Windows. Forms.MouseEven tArgs) _
Handles ListBox1.MouseW heel
Dim disable As HandledMouseEve ntArgs = e
disable.Handled = True
End Sub

I tested and i hope it works for you,

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. ...

Can this be fixed? I have a combo box which is filled with lots of choices on a certain form. I click on the combo box and want to scroll down through the items using my mouse's scroll wheel. But instead of scrolling through the combo box, Access 2000 starts scrolling through the records, as if I was hitting PAGE DOWN. How can I get Access 2000 to use the scroll wheel to scroll the combo box rather than go to the next record(s). The...

This is a curious question. I'd like to know your opinion. I am attaching a drawing resize to a mouse wheel event. Frankly, to me was most natural that, if I mouse wheel UP, the shape gets bigger, while it gets smaller when mouse wheel DOWN. I just noticed that Photoshop does the opposite. Any though about the most natural way (or perhaps are both "natural") ?

On one of my forms I have a text box sized and shaped to display multiple lines. The max content of the field is such that the text box may display less than all of the data in the field. Therefore I have the vertical scroll bar enabled for the text box object. When a user is working with this form and that text box has focus, I would like the wheel mouse to scroll the content of that field rather than scroll through the records on the...

Hello, I need to able to write JS that will click on a link with the middle mouse button - so that the link target will open in a new window or tab - using firefox. Or is there a better (more reliable) way to have the link open in a new window/tab (using JS)? I have no control over the JS already on the page - this is for a selenium user extension that I'd like to write.

First, apologies iif this is an old problem. I do read this group, but I may have missed it. When I open a form in A2K to put data into a record (or create a new record), all is well provided I do not touch the wheel on top of the mouse. I can do anything else with the mouse, that is, move it around the form and click on controls. But if I turn the wheel, Access closes out the current form record and begins to scroll up or down thru...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not.
