Hi John,

It might still be possible to catch the rawKeyUp message when the mouse wheel scrolls and write your own scrolling routine.

Best regards,

In short fields (50 high) the field “jumps” in ½ character height increments (assuming the default font and size are used).  In 100 high fields it is one line at a time increasing to 10 lines at a time when the field is 1000 high.
