More than 1 action/event for each mouse button

Post by jfhenault » Tue Aug 18, 2015 9:31 pm

Hi,

It would be so great if you could find a way to assign 2 or more actions for the same mouse button.

I have set my shortcut keys in VLC and would use those keys with my mouse.
In this example, I could use the side button of my mouse to :

1. go to the next song with a single click (Simulated keystrokes {CTRL}{ALT}{RIGHT} as mouse button is pressed)

2. advanced quickly in a song by holding the same mouse button (Simulated keystrokes {CTRL}{SHIFT}{RIGHT} repeatedly while the button is down)

Right now, only one event can be assigned for each mouse button. Many events for each button would be really appreciated.

First, is it possible?

Thank you

JF

Hi,

Its something that is asked quite a lot - although this is a slightly different take and may be more possible. The problem is that the mouse button DOWN (press) will have to be delayed until we know if it is a hold action or a click action and on the left or right buttons this could be problematic, not least because delaying the button down means dropping it - and then simulating it later on.

Some programs ignore simulated input (some games etc.) and this could prevent the mouse buttons functioning normally.

Still, on a per-application profile basis, it might work I suppose but while it might be possible, its a lot of engineering work (and probably a significant re-write of XMBC) and my time is limited - and this is a hobby and something I do in my spare time which gets less and less as all the other pressures of life/work increase!.

Thanks,
Phil
