Hi
I'm using JBuilder 6 and it's cool except for one annoying thing, I cant use my mouse roller on it. Any ideas on how to fix his? (OS is Windows 2000)

If you search the Borland site, you should be able to find a JBuilder add-on called WheelMouse which will do what you are looking for.

Jason I think that WheelMouse is for unix only, I did find a windows version at:Windows wheel mouse
I installed it (pretty stright forward) and it works fine

Dermont, the mouse-wheel event was only added to JDK 1.4. You have to run your JBuilder under 1.4; I don't know if JBUilder 6 works with 1.4 yet though. Maybe they have a patch. I'm using NetBeans 3.3.2 with jdk 1.4, and I am using the mouse-wheel with Win2k.

No, jbWheel works under Windows, for JBuilder 4-6 (well before Java 1.4). It uses a native DLL rather than the (then-nonexistent) MouseWheelEvent of Java 1.4.

Was that an external plug-in or something? I was using JBuilder4 previously to NetBeans, and the mouse wheel never worked for me.
