Mouse wheel support for DTP

Reported by: SPiff59 Owned by:
Milestone: Component: AutoIt
Version: Severity: None
Keywords: Cc:


It's a pain in the rear changing values in the DTP. You have to select fields via the mouse, and then make changes via the keyboard. It would be very convenient if the DTP handled mouse wheel events (translated wheel-up and wheel-down events into arrow-up and arrow-down).

I've managed it manually, in this thread:
But, I had to trap both the WM_SETCURSOR and WM_MOUSEWHEEL messages which isn't very clean.

*IF* there is a clean way to enable editing via the mouse wheel in the DTP UDF, *AND* it doesn't require a ton of work, *THEN* I think this would be a useful enhancement to AutoIt.

Thank you for your time.

If Valik was answering this ticket it would say we do too much in the current GUI implementation.
At least it is good you can manage to implement the behavior you like with the GUIMsgRegister().
The current behavior is what Windows Control DTP do. As AutoIt is basically a Wrapper on Windows API, we will stay with the current implementation

Thanks for your time
