Horizontal Scrolling

Postby jamburglar » Thu Jul 14, 2011 12:30 pm

I can currently use the scrollwheel on my mouse to scroll vertically, but not horizontally.

How are you not able to do so?

I can scroll horizontally when the list has no vertical scroll.

When I use the scrollwheel normally, say in the file list, it scrolls vertically without any problem. When I tilt my scrollwheel to the right, it doesn't scroll horizontally. Nothing happens.

I can click the arrow on the horizontal scrollbar and that works, but tilting the scrollwheel on my mouse doesn't work.

EDIT: I can use the scrollwheel normally to scroll horizontally when there is no vertical scroll as well. When there is vertical scroll, this obviously scrolls vertically. I propose that tilting the scrollwheel to the right/left should control horizontal scrolling.

I don't have a tilting scrollwheel to confirm.

Haha, I figured as much. You should invest in one! :)

Hi there, I have a tilt mouse and I can confirm horizontal scrolling with tilt does not work. A lot of applications don't support this so it doesn't really bother me but it would cool to have it if it could be implemented.

I've never cared about this...until now. When using a netbook with a small screen, there's a LOT of scrolling to do. Vertical scrolling is a breeze, 2 fingers on the touch pad and there it goes. The same 2 fingers moving horizontally does scroll in some applications, but not Mediamonkey.

Developers: WM_MOUSEHWHEEL (as opposed to WM_MOUSEWHEEL)

Note for developers: It'd be a good idea to forward messages (WM_MOUSEWHEEL, WM_MOUSEHWHEEL) from the Hint Window to it's Parent Window. This way when the hint window is displayed, vertical and horizontal scrolling will work from mouse wheel/tilt or track pad mouse gestures.

Thanks for all your great work!

Thanks for the link Lowlander. However, even after reading the Notes on the issue, I still think it's because the WM_MOUSEHWHEEL message isn't being handled properly. The fact that it works in so many other applications (but not MM and some others) is the clue.

Any update as to whether Horizontal mouse scrolling will be added in the future?

It probably hasn't been seriously looked at since 2011. Though, it would be nice to find it as a surprise/hush feature in MM5. :wink:
