Disable Mouse Scrolling on Forms

    Hi All

    I have a form with a large text box on it (and some other controls) and if
    there is a lot of text in the text box the user will use the mouse scroll
    (as you would in Word or Excel) to scroll down to see more text. When the
    user scrolls it actually changes the record to the next record (or previous
    record if you scroll up).

    I have this same problem happening on many forms (and subforms within a main
    form). What I am wondering is how do you either disable the Mouse Scrolling
    so that it does not move you to another record. I would still like the user
    to be able to use the mouse scroll to scroll up and down within a textbox on
    the form but I do not want the record to change when the user uses the
    scroll button.

    If you need any more details please let me know.
    Any thoughts or assistance on this one?

    Thanks to everyone for their input,

    Jeff

    The mouse scroll problem is the way it works.

    Two solutions for stopping it from going from record to record.

    1) Hardware / software. Change the mouse software but there is
    apparently only one manufacture that has the option: (I am not sure
    that this solution would allow wheel control of the text within a large
    textbox.)

    In this thread, you will see that he stumbled onto a hardware solution
    to the mouse wheel.

    http://groups.google.com/group/micr...fbeb557c94a9cc?lnk=arm&hl=en#bcfbeb557c94a9cc

    Well deduced! It's the software for the mouse (and incidentally the
    keyboard). The setup facility in the mouse software (not the microsoft
    mouse
    settings in control panel) has a "system default ,(intelimouse)"
    option and
    a setting called "enhanced scroll mode". It doesn't explain what
    exactly
    "enhanced scroll mode" is, but when that option is selected the wheel
    scrolls
    inside the form. When "system default "is selected it scrolls between
    records. This is the case even when I connected a conventional (cable
    and
    rollerball) mouse. Might be worth talking with the manufacturers and
    see if
    they can explain. from what you've said there might be a whole new
    market for
    their product!

    2) Disable the mouse wheel.

    I use Lebans mouse hook, works really well!

    There is no built-in system for disabling the mouse wheel scrolling.
    However, there is a system on Stephen Lebans' site (along with many other
    fine utilities):
