If you want components looks at these:

http://ourworld.compuserve.com/homepages/S_Page/wheelms.zip
http://ftp/d20free/mswheel.zip (on DSP)

If you are using D4 then use the OnMouseWheel, OnMouseWheelUp and  OnMouseWheelDown events.

If you are not using D4 then you will need to handle the wm_mousewheel message.

Cheers,

Raymond.

Viktor: An Intellimouse is made by Microsoft and has a little wheel in between the two mouse button so you can move the scrollbar.

I recieved this not so long ago, it shows how to trap the mousewheel message in windows 9x and send a mesage is NT for the mouse
    wheel...this should shed so light...

     
                  unit Unit1;
                   
                  interface
                   
                  uses
                    Windows, Messages, SysUtils, Classes, Graphics, Controls, Forms, Dialogs,
                  StdCtrls, ComCtrls;
                   
                  type
                    (*
                    WM_MOUSEWHEEL
                    fwKeys = LOWORD(wParam); // key flags
                    zDelta = (short) HIWORD(wParam); // wheel rotation
                    xPos = (short) LOWORD(lParam); // horizontal position of pointer
                    yPos = (short) HIWORD(lParam); // vertical position of pointer
                   
                    fwKeys: Value of the low-order word of wParam. Indicates whether
                            various virtual keys are down. This parameter can be any
                            combination of the following values:
                                MK_CONTROL Set if the CTRL key is down.
                                MK_LBUTTON Set if the left mouse button is down.
                                MK_MBUTTON Set if the middle mouse button is down.
                                MK_RBUTTON Set if the right mouse button is down.
                                MK_SHIFT Set if the SHIFT key is down.
                    *)
                    TWMMouseWheelNT = record

                    // called only under Windows 95
                    inherited WndProc(Message);
                    if (TMessage(Message).Msg = FWheelMsg) then
                      wheelMove( TWMMouseWheel95(Message).Rotation div WHEEL_DELTA );
                  end;
                   
                  procedure TForm1.WMMouseWheel(var Msg: TWMMouseWheelNT);
                  begin
                    // called only under NT 4
                    wheelMove( msg.Rotation div WHEEL_DELTA );
                  end;
                   
                  procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
                  begin
                    Close;
                  end;
                   
                  end.
