My mouse wheel can click left and right as well as down. Does anyone know how to capture this event ? It doesn't fire the mousewheel or mouseclick events. I also tried WM_SCROLL.

sorry to be a bit silly but are you referring to C++.NET or C#?

Thanks for trying to help, but I know all that stuff. My mouse wheel clicks from side to side, as well as rolling and pressing down. It's the side to side clicks I am trying to catch.

I asked in the Winforms forum because it's a winforms question. I happen to be using C#, but if you know how to do this using winforms, I don't care what language your sample code comes from...

I'd guess it would generate the WM_XBUTTONDOWN message (0x20B). Capture it with WndProc(). Check it out first with Spy++

Thanks for the suggestion, but the two X buttons are the ones on the side of the mouse. I'll try it, but reading the docs for the message, I'm pretty sure this won't do it.

You're a legend. What you suggested wasn't it, but it helped me to find the answer in MSDN - WM_MOUSEHWHEEL

OK - thanks for pointing that out. So, I'm still lost at sea, with no way to catch this message.
