hi,

Is there any patch that should be installed to get intellisense support? Also I am not able to scroll down through the page using mouse scroll wheel.

Thanks.

No. The facility should be there anyway. As a thought, it might be worth checking to see what libraries are automatically included in the default application. Open a new project and check if these items are ticked:

Visual Basic For Applications
Visual basic runtime objects and procedures
Visual Basic objects and procedures
OLE Automation

It is working. Thank you very much.
Also, is there anything for the intellisense?

Thanks.

Making the mouse scroll in the IDE is easy, and has already been covered. If you want your PROGRAMS to utilize the scroll wheel, make a new .bas module and insert this code:

Private Declare Function CallWindowProcA& Lib "user32.dll" (ByVal lpPrevWndFunc&, ByVal hWnd&, ByVal Msg&, ByVal Wparam&, ByVal Lparam&)

Private Declare Function SetWindowLongA& Lib "user32.dll" (ByVal hWnd&, ByVal nIndex&, ByVal dwNewLong&)

Dim LocalPrevWndProc&

Private Function WindowProc&(ByVal Lwnd&, ByVal Lmsg&, ByVal Wparam&, ByVal Lparam&)
  If Lmsg& = &H20A Then
      MouseKeys& = Wparam& And 65535
      rotation& = Wparam& / 65536
      Xpos& = Lparam& And 65535
      Ypos& = Lparam& / 65536
      GetForm(Lwnd&).MouseWheel MouseKeys&, rotation&, Xpos&, Ypos&
  End If
  WindowProc& = CallWindowProcA&(LocalPrevWndProc&, Lwnd&, Lmsg&, Wparam&, Lparam&)
End Function

Public Sub WheelHook(PassedForm As Form)
   On Error Resume Next
   LocalPrevWndProc& = SetWindowLongA&(PassedForm.hWnd, -4, AddressOf WindowProc&)
End Sub

Public Sub WheelUnHook(PassedForm As Form)
   On Error Resume Next
   WorkFlag& = SetWindowLongA&(PassedForm.hWnd, -4, LocalPrevWndProc&)
End Sub

Private Function GetForm(ByVal hWnd&) As Form
   For Each GetForm In Forms
      If GetForm.hWnd = hWnd& Then Exit Function
   Next GetForm
   Set GetForm = Nothing
End Function

Public Sub FlexGridScroll(ByRef fg As MSFlexGrid, ByVal MouseKeys&, ByVal rotation&, ByVal Xpos&, ByVal Ypos&)
   On Error Resume Next
   With fg
      Lstep! = 3
      If rotation& > 0 Then
         NewValue& = .TopRow - Lstep!
         If NewValue& < 1 Then
            NewValue& = 1
         End If
      Else
         NewValue& = .TopRow + Lstep!
         If NewValue& > .Rows - 1 Then
            NewValue& = .Rows - 1
         End If
      End If
      .TopRow = NewValue&
   End With
End Sub

This in any form's Form_Load event, just use:
Call WheelHook(Me)
Then for instance, to make a FlexGrid scroll, put this subroutine in the form:
Public Sub MouseWheel(ByVal MouseKeys&, ByVal rotation&, ByVal Xpos&, ByVal Ypos&)
   If TypeOf Me.ActiveControl Is MSFlexGrid Then FlexGridScroll Me.ActiveControl, MouseKeys&, rotation&, Xpos&, Ypos&
End Sub

may be intellisense was working already.

when I create an instance of a class then it shows all the methods or properties in that class when I type that instance.
But when I create a variable like
    Private demo As Boolean
then when I type "d" it does not show the variable "demo" in the intellisense. I guess this is something that is not supported in VB6.

Thanks.
