    Aug 03 2011 | 10:08 am
    mousestate is great, but there is no input from scrolling-whel. Is there any possibility to grap scrolling-wheel input?

      thanks vry much. Now, i´ve installed "ol.mousewheel"...
      But the range is only from 1 to -1 in integer. So the wheel in like a toggle... is there a way to get fine float values?

      don´t have installed the external, but given the 1/-1 is send for each wheel move-step you could calculate and interpolate your own float-scale easily (using [timer] for speed etc.)

      Hi, it works fine, but there is still a big Problem:
      When the Max-Window is inactive, it recieves nothing...
      If the mousstate-Window inactive, it works fine... Is there a trick or is that a problem of coding?

      It´s very common that only the GUI-active application receives the current mouse-action from the operating system. Maybe there is a trick or tool for that, but I assume it won´t be obvious.

      i wants to readout the Maouswheel activity with Max an then send it via Midi to a Softwaresynth.
      so it seems not possible, to use "ol.mousewheel"... for this usecase ;(, or?
      thanks, hgh

      but i wants not the Max window active, i must have the extern VST-synthesizer-Window active... This synth is not includet in MAx...
      Thats the problem...

      hm, nice idea... I will try to load it to Max... But i´ve never load a VST into Max before. Do you have an short example-patch to load/implement a VST into Max?
      Thank you very much, hgh

      It´s very simple, just try.
