I have some menus that contain many menuitems. Mouse wheel doesn't scroll them. I have to use the keyboard arrows or click the arrows at top and bottom. Is it possible to use the mouse wheel to scroll toolstrip menu items? in Thanks

Solution 1

This is the way the Windows controls work: you will see the same thing in every other Windows form (for example, the Favorites menu in an IE browser with a large number of bookmarks.) You cannot override this behavior unless you write your own menu controls to implement what you want, and that is a very complex situation.

A much better solution -- and probably why Microsoft implemented menus the way they did -- is to organize things into sub-menus. Looking again at IE, you have the top-level View menu, then several sub-menus such as Text size. If you must implement a list of menu items that are arbitrarily long, your only options are to make due or write your own.
