I know powerbuilder can detect the mouse wheel though message.number 522, but how can it detect the direction of the mouse wheel??

I do not have powerbuilder here to experiment with. I would assume that it works much like Windows.  Check out these links:

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms645614(v=VS.85).aspx
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms646254(v=vs.85).aspx

The second link shows that the high two bytes of the wparam contain the wheel delta (more about that in the link).  Basically positive means forward and negative means back.

I tried below in datawindow 'other' event and it works


CONSTANT integer LCI_MOUSEWHEEL = 522

IF message.number = LCI_MOUSEWHEEL THEN
      If long( message.wordparm) < 0 Then
            Messagebox('','down')
      Else
            Messagebox('','up')            
      End If
END IF

You should, technically, shift the wordparam right 16 in order to get just the high word.  Otherwise information in the low order word may, occasionally, cause that code not to work.

I think the solution I provided is working fine for me and it's the correct solution of the problem.

CONSTANT integer LCI_MOUSEWHEEL = 522

IF message.number = LCI_MOUSEWHEEL THEN
      If long( message.wordparm) < 0 Then
            Messagebox('','down')
      Else
            Messagebox('','up')            
      End If
END IF
