Is it possible to disable the mouse scroll wheel? RRS feed

  • Question

  • In some of my applications there is no need for the scroll wheel, and if a user absent mindedly scrolls the wheel, the form record changes without being particularly noticeable. This leaves the user entering data for the wrong record.

    Is it possible to disable the wheel to avoid this?

    Thanks.  --Fred

    Yes, in my option, mouse scroll wheel will not automatically work if you did not define it. It will work if you use the Form_MouseWheel event. I am not sure your access version, with the link below, it seems that your access version is earlier that Access 2007. In Form View in Microsoft Office Access 2007 or in Microsoft Access 2010, when you try to use the mouse wheel to move through records in a form, nothing happens.

    # You cannot use the mouse wheel to scroll through records in an Access 2007 or Access 2010 form

    Since this, I suggest you remove Form_MouseWheel event in the event of Form. You could check On Mouse Wheel.

    Best Regards,

  • Hi Fred. What version of Access are you using? I have 2010, and the records don't move when I scroll the wheel.
