How do I set focus follows mouse

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  increment\decrement the value by 1, while ShiftKey + PageUp/PageDown keypresses will increment\decrement the value by 10.

It's worth experimenting with.
