Add scroll wheel support to VB6

Yes, you read that right. The client I'm currently assigned to has a significant amount of legacy code in VB6. Not an ideal situation, but at least it isn't COBOL.

Anyway, one of the first things I noticed after loading a project was that I couldn't scroll through the code using the mouse wheel. It turns out the VB6 IDE didn't include wheel support. Fortunately, there's an add-in from Microsoft that fixes this. See KB article 837910 for the download and install instructions.

And yes, I'm aware that this probably doesn't pertain to you (if it does, I feel your pain.) The post is mainly a bookmark for my own reference. Any sympathy it generates is just a bonus :)

  1. Ah yes. Been there, done that. I think I'll bookmark this in case I have to do it again. :)
