Scrolling + hotkeys

CutTheRedWire / 1 decade ago (18 February 2003 12:28)

Just was wondering if anyone knew of a modual or a way to use the scroll wheel with a shift ket as a hot key. I (and couple friends) would like to set Shift+ScrolUp/Down to volume. I can think of other uses too, but I don´t even know if it can be done yet. :P

hmm... nope, haven´t got the slightest clue where to find such a "thingy", but it sounds very interesting though!!

It also would work well with the hotkey plugin that can have resetable groups of hotkeys (and the one that can turn on/off the scroll/cpas/num lock). Then you could have even more functions (play list control, browser control, etc). Would also be cool if the scroll wheel could move through the menus and such.

hmm... btw, most new keyboards have "hotkeys" for turning the volume up/down, and I should guess/think/hope that someone with a bit of programming skills/tools might sneak out which parts of the drivers that controls volume and mimic the code somehow to match the mouse - or am I dreaming?!

Ah, but if it was configurable with other hotkeys, you could have it do a variety of things.

I think the best cinerio would be something like rainmeter does: it´s a modual or an app. Something that could be a hotkey app, or replace the hotkey.dll in LS.

I have an optical track ball with 5 button. The three spare are set to: Alt+F4, Enter, and Shift (with Shift+Enter = menu). Now I just gotta get the scroll wheel to work for volume.

Still, it would give added functionality even it you didn´t have 5 buttons. For now I just have Ctrl+Up/Down controling winamp´s volume (still looking for a !bang to control the master volume, but that shouldn´t be too hard to find).

Scarebear: what shell do you use?

Snowman: Know any places I can look (besides loose-screws.com)? I´m fairly new to LS (just around two months experience).
