Mouse Wheel?

15 posts in this topic

Is there a way to utilize Mouse Wheel commands in AutoIt3?

Or possibly in AutoHotKey?

Thanks!

I'll check the APIs to see if it can be done. And if so add it for a later version (current features are frozen for initial release)

Edit: Seems simple enough but it will only work on NT/2000/XP

Win 98/ME can also understand the mousewheel. Will your solution work there too?

How about checking out Microsoft documentation for VC6? It is in the Windows 98 samples area.

Hmm, what about explicitly posting the message to simulate(stimulate?) the MOUSEWHEEL? B) I will try it this week end and let you know. :whistle:

:whistle: mousewheel, puhleeeze gimmie control of the mousewheel. I have another ap I am trying to control, and the only way to get it to accept input properly is to use the mousewheel to move the ``cells'' in my window. Otherwise, the web browser screen stops accepting {right} commands and my cells die. puhleeze ... quickly, hack, handle, workaround, puhleezepuhleezepuhleezepuhleezepuhleezepuhleezepuhleezepuhleezepuhleezepuhleezepuhleezepuhleezepuhl

FWIW I was rippin cause the mouse would not work in VB or VBA. I have some interesting code in a zip file that I got after lots of reading. I'll pass it on if you tell me how?

MouseWheel ( "direction" [, clicks] ) example MousWheel("up", 3)

direction is "up" or "down"

clicks is a number; if omitted, 1 is used

Works on Windows NT/2000/XP ONLY

:whistle: I was right the first time. I didn't grab or extract the zip file correctly. sorry for the doh! question, but what should I be extracting?

:whistle: that is, i downloaded the zip files, unzipped them to my v3 directory, but when I tried to use the mousewheel command, I got essentially `this program has never heard of that function' error message, so I am assuming I did not grab and extract the files properly ... thanks.
