Scroll Wheel Remap - Intermittent Functionality

13 Sep 2019, 21:56

Hello, this is my first forum post.

I'm hoping that someone could help me with an issue that I'm facing. I'm currently working on a script that remaps the scroll wheel when an executable is active. The script functions. However, the issue is that if I scroll the wheel fast enough normal wheel movements can get through. This is reliable and easily repeatable.

I've been searching for something that can fix this but I haven't found anything that works yet. I've used "A_EventInfo", as included in AHK's documentation, to check my mouse and the tooltip always shows a "1" regardless of how fast I scroll the wheel. I've done a host of other tests with other functions too. I'm thinking that is has something to do with the speed of the script but I'm not sure.

It's a very simple script so I don't know how I can speed it up; if that's what I need to do. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

#NoEnv  ; Recommended for performance and compatibility with future AutoHotkey releases.
; #Warn  ; Enable warnings to assist with detecting common errors.
SendMode Input  ; Recommended for new scripts due to its superior speed and reliability.
SetWorkingDir %A_ScriptDir%  ; Ensures a consistent starting directory.

I didn't get notified of your reply. So it took me somewhat longer to reply.

Your script changes the buttons over properly but I'm still getting the same issue. Thanks for the attempt though.

Ok, so I've found a fix for this issue. I still don't fully understand why it works but I'll look into it some more. Basically, I just needed to change how to the hotkey was formatted. Instead of "^WheelUp" as the hotkey, for example, I needed to enter "~Control & WheelUp" ("Control & WheelUp" works as well). Also, I'm not sure if it's better for the tilde prefix to be present with this hotkey but I'll just leave it for now as I haven't noticed any issues with it yet. I've adjusted the "MaxHotkeysPerInterval" value too because I was getting a pop-up message if I scrolled the wheel fast enough.

Here's the new code:

Code: Select all

#NoEnv  ; Recommended for performance and compatibility with future AutoHotkey releases.
; #Warn  ; Enable warnings to assist with detecting common errors.
SendMode Input  ; Recommended for new scripts due to its superior speed and reliability.
SetWorkingDir %A_ScriptDir%  ; Ensures a consistent starting directory.

#MaxHotkeysPerInterval 150

SetTitleMatchMode, 2

Hotkey, IfWinActive, ahk_exe applicationframehost.exe
;Hotkey, ^WheelDown, RightPhoto  ; causes scrolling issue
Hotkey, ~Control & WheelDown, RightPhoto

Hotkey, IfWinActive, ahk_exe applicationframehost.exe
;Hotkey, ^WheelUp, LeftPhoto  ; causes scrolling issue
Hotkey, ~Control & WheelUp, LeftPhoto

return

RightPhoto:
;ControlGetFocus, fcontrol, A ; not essential for this case
SendInput, {Right down}{Right up}
return

LeftPhoto:
;ControlGetFocus, fcontrol, A ; not essential for this case
SendInput, {Left down}{Left up}
return

<^<#MButton::
	Hotkey, ^WheelDown, toggle
	Hotkey, ^WheelUp, toggle
	;Suspend
	;Pause
	return

- - UPDATE - -


I'm updating my post to include another method that seems to work well. I haven't encountered any scrolling issues with this other method either; after everything is set up properly.

The aforementioned method is to use BlockInput. What I'm using, specifically, for another similar script is "BlockInput Send". The script needs to run with UI Access but using BlockInput in conjunction with GetKeyState allows me to use multiple modifiers with the scroll wheel.

Here are snippets of the code:

Code: Select all

SendMode Event

#InstallKeybdHook
#InstallMouseHook
#UseHook On

(code)

Hotkey, IfWinActive ; here to cancel a previous "Hotkey, If" sub-command and also for potential use in the future
Hotkey, IfWinNotActive ; here to cancel a previous "Hotkey, If" sub-command and also for potential use in the future
Hotkey, ~LShift & WheelUp, WU_Mode2/3

(code)

WU_Mode2/3:
; Mode3
If GetKeyState("LControl")
	{
	BlockInput Send
	Send, ^{NumpadAdd}
	return
	}
Else
; Mode2
	SendInput, {WheelLeft}
return

(code)
