MouseWheel tuning in test app

  • Question
  • Updated 3 years ago
Another short video, with no sound or narration (sorry Bert), showing my panadapter testbed
and managing to tune the Slice Frequency using the MouseWheel. Still a few oddities as you will see, but, getting closer all the time. Once I have the actual Slice Receiver tune line and filter flag properly working, I'll go back to working with the Waterfall. (which works but, is sloooooww)
But, for now, just wanted some input from others. Oh, and this is NOT what the final application
will look like. It's just a down and dirty testbed.

James, I believe you creating something like the mouse tuning in PowerSDR?
Just hover the mouse over a frequency display and turn the wheel and tuning
is possible according to the number pointed to?

That would be a very good idea!

Why would we need this feature, as waterfall tuning is possible?
Well, for precision and fast tuning nothing beats a mouse wheel and if you're
using remote with a notebook-even more so.
Sadly SmartSDR is missing this feature, which was so great in PowerSDR.

I'm using a Behringer CMD Micro DJ Midi Controller with William Hemmingsen's
program to tune, but mouse wheel tuning would be a great asset!

Alex, thanks for the comments. At present, I am using the same tuning behavior as SSDR. Scrolling the mousewheel anywhere on the main form will change the Active Slice's frequency. I can impliment the behavior as in PSDR but, that will be after I solve my tuning step issue.
