Does the Microsoft cancel support for middle mouse button?
Posted on 2011-10-12
I still use VB6 it serve me very well. Let me describe more my problem. I have a grid which already use left and right click and its dbl click, but I need more! In the past there middle button in the mouse, what happen with it ? I do not see it in today mouses, but they usually have click with track boll. Not scroll, I mean click down over track ball.
So my question is – how to catch such click? I try with mouse_down, there is vbMiddleButton look that it not function, I can get only left and right click. More, I try this except with VB6 with MS C# 2008 and here is same story, I ‘m able to catch only Left and right buttons.
So I have 2 questions:
1. Look to me that the Microsoft cancel middle button support. True or not?
2. How to capture in VB6 buttons different than left and right ? May be it functioning, but I try with 3 different model mouse and result is same – just left and right click.
My solution should work in both XP and Win 7.
