Feature request : spin mouse wheel for faster scroll

Post by AndyK »

Hi,

I have seen a function on a HP Spectre 500 (Hyper Scrolling)
and Logitech Mouse (MagSpeed), and I like it so much :)

Spinning the mouse wheel for faster scrolling through long websites, long documents ans so on.
slow scroll => scrolling line-by-line
spin mouse wheel => fast scrolling


here two videos to show the functionality on Logitch XM Master 3

Is it possible to put in these function in x-mouse button control, so that it work in all mice?

Thanks
Andy

Use {PGUP} for Scroll up and {PGDN} for scroll down.

Then for fast scrolling for ex. hold 5th button (chord).

and when the mouse only have 3 buttons?

I wish XMBC could evaluate the movement of the mouse wheel and then react accordingly.

Slow rotation => step-by-step
Quickly turn the mouse wheel - speed scrolling

You mea like a multiplier applied to the "lines to scroll" based on the number of milliseconds since the last scroll (in the same direction) message?
Some sort of acceleration vector?

It might be possible BUT it would mean the faster scrolling would have to inject messages to add extra scroll steps (or inject pgup/down) and that might cause lag (because the injected messages may continue slightly after stopping physical scrolling!
