    Every thing that can be done by MFC, can be done by API too.

    Ok, thanks for your help but I don't understand how "WM_MOUSEHWHEEL" really works and if that's what I should use.

    I was thinking of using the mouse scroll to scroll through a menu in a windows console application. Instead of using the keyboard to select a menu choice. Is that also possible?

    You can get mouse position. You can get wheel move. So I think it is possible.
