How do I set focus follows mouse

edited May 2019 in SmartSDR for Windows

Is there a way to set up "focus follows mouse" behavior in SmartSDR?

I’m looking to change the various sliders with the mouse wheel by simply floating the mouse over the slider and rolling the wheel. It appears the wheel is tied to the active slice for frequency manipulation.

Thanks, KS0CW

    That isn't possible. You have to mouse click on the control and the either move the slider button or click on either the right or left side of the slider bar to increment or decrement the control's value.

    Also, by first click selecting the slider to give it focus, You "might" be able to increment/decrement it's position using your keyboards, PageUp, and PageDown keys.

    This works on many of the slider controls found in MS Windows applications.
    At times the arrow keys might also have a similar function.

    This is more of a built-in Windows feature, than it is a SmartSDR thing.

    I've noticed also that sometimes single PageUp/PageDown keypresses  incrementdecrement the value by 1, while ShiftKey + PageUp/PageDown keypresses will incrementdecrement the value by 10.

    It's worth experimenting with.

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
