Hi,
I cannot figure out why the code window in the VB IDE does not scroll. Is there some way to get it to scroll?

What do you mean it doesn't scroll, it doesn't scroll with the button on your mouse?  Or it doesn't scroll at all?

Also, have you tried downloading the latest service pack?

If you're talking about scrolling when you roll your mouse roller button, VB doesn't (I'm guessing) because Microsoft did not develop the IDE using the standard development tools available in the new Windows/VB.  Instead, it appears that they simply carried over the code from Windows 3.1/VB 3 before the mouse rollers existed.

It works fine on mine, have you tried downloading updated mouse drivers?  You are talking about it not scrolling inside of VB (not in your program), right?

Are you working on a project having datagridcontrols bound to a data control? That used to be an issue in vba.

C,
Yes, I am talking about the code window in VB, not in a program. It scrolls in every other one of my installed programs, just not in the VB code IDE.

Crash2100, are you saying that your VB6 IDE environment code windows have scrollbars that work with your mouse's roller button?

>Is there some way to get it to scroll?
I'm guessing that the only way is to re-write the IDE to support that feature.  I'm also guessing that .net has this problem fixed.

rspahitz,
Pleae skip the pushy attitude.

If you read Crash2100's comment above, "It works fine on mine" then "it appears that [Microsoft] simply carried over the code [for the VB IDE] from Windows 3.1/VB 3 before the mouse rollers existed." is not the answer.

dingo11, I didn't mean to come across that way.  Everyone I know has the same problem so I through that Crash2100 may have interpreted the question differently.

Crash2100, what type of mouse are you using, and is the updated driver from Microsoft or the mouse company?

glad to hear it worked!

maybe that carried over code from win 3.1 is why you need the mouse driver for vb to handle the scroller.  But who knows?

rspahitz, my mouse a logitech mouseman wheel and I'm using the drivers from logitech.

Thanks, Crash2100.  I'll check out the drivers, too.  My current machine never had VB3.  It only had Windows 2000 and VB6, so maybe the Logitech mouse driver work with a non-Windows mouse driver to fix it.
