How to track MouseWheel movements in Visual Basic 6.0?
VB cares about standard mouse buttons but provides no mean to react to MouseWhel movements :blink:
Do I have to use the Win32 API (if so, how?) or is there a built-in method in VB?
Please give detailed help, as I have limited VB knowledge
Thanks in advance.

How can it be nobody knows enough on VB to help me? Never mind, problem is solved.

I understand, don't worry. VB is really limited... I too prefer C/C++.
Problem was, my Boss wanted a utility to show certain data using a 3D graphic.
Not too complicated.
But he wanted me to use VB (ouch), and also asked for a zoom-Like feature bound to the mousewheel :dry: (gosh! why ME?)
I just couldn't tell him using VB for the task was insane Especially since he like it so much (Boss, grow up: VB is a toy...)
So, shortly after posting here, I found a VB6.0 crash course and learned how to call Win32API.
The rest was piece of cake:
1) subclass form's window procedure
2) intercept WM_MOUSEWHEEL messages (which VB seem to purposedly ignore... why I wonder!?).
