[Deprecated] Mouse wheel scroll actions

Post by killall-q »

It's so simple and obvious it's stupid...

I searched here and the Google Code issues list and didn't find it.

MouseWheelUpAction
MouseWheelDownAction

Possible applications:
Feed readers
Application launchers
Media players
File browsers
Image browsers
Volume changers

MiddleMouseUpAction
MiddleMouseDownAction

Added a while back.

I guess we could ask for scroll up/scroll down actions though...

Yes, sorry if it's not clear enough. Scrolling support is exactly what I mean.

As long as we understand that it won't do anything different than LeftMouseUpAction etc. It would just be another alternative for an "action". There is no and will be no "scrolling" in Rainmeter.

No, there definitely should not be. I recall from my days of binding keys for Counter-Strike that scrolling is just another form of clicking. It only lacks separate up and down states.

Yes, but combining it with !RainmeterSetVariable and some calc work we might be able to increment a value up and down maybe...

The simplest way I can think of to do pgup/pgdn functions is every time you "scroll", the button hides itself and shows the next button that does the next step of scroll. At the same time you might as well also set the position of a scroll indicator. Beyond that is the realm of calcs and update rate boundaries. Hopefully that will be made easier someday with either math in !RainmeterSetVariable or dynamic variable increment/decrement. *hint hint*

I've been able to do the formulas in SetVariable.

Since the window needs to have focus for WM_MouseWheel messages to be received you would need to click on a skin before your mouse wheel would actually do anything. I like the idea but I think this kind of breaks the norm for interaction with Rainmeter and I will not be working on it.

Holy cow — formulas do work. I didn't find that out before because they don't work if there are any spaces, even inside parentheses. Even stuff like

!RainmeterSetVariable YPos (#YPos#+10)

is OK. So increment/decrement was already there as another easter egg.


I understand about WM_MouseWheel, when the idea came to me I was thinking about how in Opera you have the option to change tabs by scrolling on the tab bar, but Opera is a single window program and already has focus.
