horizontal mouse scroll wheel not working

Post by frank26080115 »

Windows 11 Pro 64 bit 22H2 build 22621

Everything version 1.4.1.1022 (x86)

My mouse has a horizontal scroll wheel, it does not work with Everything, a different looking scroll bar appears on the bottom of the screen and it does move but the table view itself does not move.

Please see attached video

Has it been already?

Because in version 1.5.0.1340a (x64) Portable I get the same bug; but only after I hit the end of horizontal data to be scrolled - i.e. if I reach edge of content that can be displayed in main window then my horizontal Scroll Bar gets visually glitched and works only if I grab it and move in such state. And if I close and re-open Everything it works once again - until I once again use sideways scrolling for too long [i.e. to its max]

What type of mouse are you using?

Could you please send some verbose debug logs?
  • In Everything, from the Tools menu, under the Debug submenu, check Start Debug Logging.
  • In Everything, from the Tools menu, under the Debug submenu, check Verbose.
  • Scroll the result list with the mouse horizontal scroll wheel.
  • In Everything, from the Tools menu, under the Debug submenu, click Stop Debug Logging.
    The Everything Debug Log.txt will open in Notepad.
  • Please save this file to the Desktop and send to support@voidtools.com

Logitech Mouse MX Anywhere 2 Business Travel / Logitech Mouse MX Anywhere 2 For Amazon

I have today once more performed tests, during which I had every unecessary program closed - which meant that I was unable to close Logitech background programs, because without them the side scrolling with mouse wheel does not work at all


The only other program that I have issues with scrolling is Microsoft Excel 2010, in which sometimes for unknown to me reasons the side scrolling with mouse wheel stops working [untill re-opening of this program]

I will in a moment

But it will not include a situation in which scrolling ended well [i.e. as it should - on the account of stopping it before reaching an edge] because for whatever reason I am unable to repeat this behavior: now even a shortest side scroll evokes its blockade, thus forcing me to re-open Everything in order to use it

Thank you for the debug logs Thy Grand Voidinesss,

Everything was not handling mouse wheel events correctly.

Everything 1.5.0.1341a should now process mouse wheel events correctly.

Although this bug has not been completely eradicated - as it very rarely manifests itself but luckily goes away whenever Scroll Wheel is released

A more thorough description of this [now weaker] bug is inserted in this topic: viewtopic.php?p=55482#p55482

Perhaps Everything is getting stuck in the middle mouse button scroll.

Please try disabling the middle mouse button action:
  • Copy and paste the following into your Everything search box:
    /mbutton_action=0
  • Press ENTER in your Everything search box.
  • If successful, mbutton_action=0 is shown in the status bar for a few seconds.
mbutton_action

I have jus changes this value to

Code: Select all

0
and I will report later on about effects

I reckon, If weeks will pass by and I do no experience this visual glitch, we will have to assume then that this had been the cause

I seems that this visual glitch is still happening only if I side-scroll with Mouse Wheel when at the same time I hover the mouse pointer over Header of any Column

Please see if Everything 1.5.0.1350a helps.

This version will handle sent mbuttonup events (instead of posted mbuttonup events)

Unfortunately upgrading to 1350a did not help

Thank you for testing 1350a Thy Grand Voidinesss,

Everything 1.5.0.1351a adds debug information to the header control.

Could you please try reproducing the issue with debug logging enabled in this new version:
  • In Everything 1.5.0.1351a, from the Tools menu, under the Debug submenu, check Start Debug Logging.
  • In Everything, from the Tools menu, under the Debug submenu, check Verbose.
  • Scroll the header with the mouse horizontal scroll wheel.
  • In Everything, from the Tools menu, under the Debug submenu, click Stop Debug Logging.
    The Everything Debug Log.txt will open in Notepad.
  • Please save this file to the Desktop and send to support@voidtools.com

Thank you for the logs.

I will change how Everything processes the horizontal mouse wheel event in the next alpha update and report back.

Everything 1.5.0.1352a will now handle mousewheel events sent to the header control.

Does the issue occur with this version?

It has stopped - thus all horizontal scrolling seems now to be glitch free

Thank you for this update
