Disabling mouse clicks in a Richedit control

hai Experts,

 I have a RichEdit control in which I want to disable mouse clicks in the control and at the same I
want to scroll  the richedit control using it's own scrollbar.
 
 When I set the Enabled property to true (disabling) the scroll bar will also get disabled.

 Is there any way to disable mouse clicks in a Richedit control with out disabling  the scroll bar
associated to it?. Can I use a separate TScrollBar componet for scrolling the Richedit control? If yes,
can you send me the code which does this?.

pls help...

Hi,

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  SendMessage(RichEdit1.Handle, EM_LINESCROLL, 0, 10);
end;

10 is the amount of lines to scroll.

Regards Jacco
