Engage and Select

 [1/3] from: mattsmac::hotmail at: 16-Sep-2003 14:54


I have a text area that I am using an engage function in to catch when the user uses the scroll-wheel on the mouse. However, I cannot click and drag to select the text within the box while the engage function is there. Is there a way to get the best of everything?

You could look at the standard ENGAGE function, and use that as your starting point.
>> probe get in ctx-text/edit 'engage
You can start by using that code and making manual edits against it. When you get in a little deeper there are some VID gurus around that might suggest some better ways to do things. -- Gregg

Yes, look at existing engage function: layout [a: area] probe a/feel You can just copy the key handling code you see there. Anton.
