Dragging map once clicked

Recommended Posts

Hi all

 

First off, thanks for the wonderful application, Stev.

 

Secondly, I have this issue where I keep dragging around my map once I have clicked it to drag around (I can't stop it from 'chasing' my mouse). This happens every now and then and I have not yet discovered what actually triggers it. It might be due to dragging the map and releasing it too quickly but it might be anything else too.

I have tried several things to make it stop, only reloading the app works for me.

 

I appreciate all help

 

Thanks in advance!

Sounds like it's not receiving the button up message from your mouse. I've have a few people tell me this - I'll try and think of a solution and push it through. Thanks for letting me know. :).

Quick question: Does it do it with both map sizes?

Sorry for the slow response. It has only occurred in large map size, but I rarely use small. It also seem to occur from time to time, I can't seem to trigger it on purpose.

Thanks a lot for your quick reply :-)

That is the complete opposite of what I would have thought... I forgot to remove a sleep (75) from when moving the big map - which is why you'll probably notice it doesn't move as smoothly. I figured that would have been the one that works of the two.

 

Currently, DGSweeper monitors the following messages:

WM_LBUTTONDOWN = 0x201
WM_LBUTTONDBLCLK = 0x203
WM_RBUTTONDOWN = 0x204
WM_RBUTTONDBLCLK = 0x206

 

At first I thought, "I'll just monitor WM_LBUTTONUP = 0x202 also, and have it stop the move." Sounds easy enough, right? Of course, nope. The WM_LBUTTONUP has to occur over top of the DGSweeper window for it to receive the message. So, if you clicked and quickly moved your mouse (talking under a millisecond here) and released the button before the window could catch up - it would continually follow the mouse.

 

Now, any normal developer would say, "Use PostMessage,0xA1,2,,,A." That's the message to send to a window to tell it to move, I guess would be the easiest way to explain it. It's like telling it I've clicked it's title bar. In any other case, I'd use that. However, because the DGSweeper is set to a style of NoActivate, so the window won't take focus when clicked and yet not be Disabled (unable to interact with), 0xA1 has some really weird behavior.

 

I'll keep thinking. :P.

It was an error with my function which get the state of various keys. It's been fixed and the update will be pushed through once MageUK gets online.

Ooooo, I see (I hardly understand anything of what you have just said, really, but I appreciate you try to explain :P).

Thank you very much for solving the problem, it was just a minor issue but it was quite annoying when it occured. Your application is brilliant, I enjoy dg a lot more since I've been using it.

 

Thanks again and have a good day.
