Using functionality of ScrollMouse button in VB

I write a lot of ActiveX controls.  The major feature I lack in all of these controls is the ability to use the functionality of the ScrollMouse button (the middle wheel button on the mouse).  For instance, lets say I build a control, and if it is sized small enough, I show a Vertical scrollbar on the right.  I would like the be able to receive the Windows messages (or whatever) that would tell me when a user uses the wheel over my control.

Anyone know how?

If you were female, I'd kiss you!  :-)

Thank you, that is EXACTLY what I wanted, plus you answered another problem I had months ago when I used 95 to develop in VB (the scrollmouse wouldn't work if I had a usercontrol).

I don't know how you found it... I've spent a good amount of time searching the MS Knowledge Base, yet found NOTHING!!!
