I have a mouse wheel function that fires when ever the user scrolls up or down and sneds the keys PgUp and PgDown so a rich textbox can be scrolled, but whenever the richtextbox gets so big the scrollbar appears, the mouse wheel only fires when I scroll up, not when I scroll down, and when richtextbox isn't so large, it works fine. What should I do?

Btw mouse wheel function doesn't even get called when scrolling down, so need to see the code

What I have tried:

I've set breakpoints at the function and found out it doesn't get called when the user scrolls down, only when scrolling up

Instead of "sending keys", actually try scrolling.

Doesn't work, that's why I added an event handler to the textbox to call a function, but when going down it doesn't get called at all

You're probably not respecting the "z-order". That's the only time I'm aware of that the mouse "misses"; in which case I may resort to transparent rectangles to increase / redraw a hit area. (Rectangles can have events)

If that is truly the case then you should report the problem to Microsoft.
