  • New Scrolling Method

    Is there a way, whether in PHP or Java (or both) to make it so that when you click and hold the left mouse button, when you move the mouse, it will scroll up or down. Like in game Black & White where you have to click and hold to move, but just for up and down

    PHP is a server side language, so you can't with it. I believe Java is used for applets or sumthin, I'm not sure if you could with it.

    I'm sure you could do something in JavaScript. I did something similar in a Visual Basic application I wrote. Basic concept (psuedocode):
    onLoad {
        var Move = 0
    onMouseDown {
        Move = 1
    onMouseMove {
        if ( Move == 1) {
            // compare current X,Y to previously stored X,Y
            // move the content by % based on mouse position
        // keep track of the mouse position
        mouse_x = //current mouse x coordinate
        mouse_y = //current mouse y coordinate
    onMouseUp {
        var Move = 0

      If anyone is interested...

      The VB app I wrote is for people who like Case Mods. It allows you to control 'schtuff' (lights, fans, etc.) inside your machine... My cousin designs and builds the hardware, then I write the software.
