Scroll "java window" via VB

Hi,

how can i use a vb timer (interval e.g. 900) to send a
"scrolldown" or a "scrollup" to a "java chat window".

The URL is:
===========

knuddels.com (chat with java window)

(Easy immediate registration. No confirmation mail will
be sent to your email address. -You don't need a valid eMail address.)

(annotation: to scroll the java chat window up and down
you can use the "mouse wheel" .)

-But my question is: How can I scroll the window by code ?

That is not possible in any way.

User 'shimanov' posted a sample how to send mouse scrolls
to window under mouse.

It should work under Win98+
-But the sample is in Delphi :

*********************************************************************************************
WheelUp::
MouseGetPos, m_x, m_y
hw_m_target := DllCall( "WindowFromPoint", "int", m_x, "int", m_y )

; WM_MOUSEWHEEL
; WHEEL_DELTA = 120
SendMessage, 0x20A, 120 << 16, ( m_y << 16 )|m_x,, ahk_id %hw_m_target%
return
*********************************************************************************************



*********************************************************************************************
WheelDown::
MouseGetPos, m_x, m_y
hw_m_target := DllCall( "WindowFromPoint", "int", m_x, "int", m_y )

; WM_MOUSEWHEEL
; WHEEL_DELTA = 120
SendMessage, 0x20A, -120 << 16, ( m_y << 16 )|m_x,, ahk_id %hw_m_target%
return

Java created window is not native Windows window, it is Java Virtual Machine specific one, You can't interact with inner scrolls in it.

Now i translated user shimanov's code to vb6 (see working sample below).

With the sample i can send a "virtual_mouse_wheel_rotation"
to the window under the mouse.

The vb6 sample works with notepad, word, IE and other programs.

-But as you mentioned - it doesn't work with a Java created window. So your answer
is correct, and i'll give you the 500 points.

Thanks for the points, although I wasn't very helpful :)
