Ah Grasshopper! Again you have failed to respect history. Olde tyme myce had only two buttons (there is some pre-history regarding a "one button mouse" but that can be disregarded) hence the numbering.

Have you ever noticed that software is never advertised using the adjective "spreadable".

Is it the same for Mouse.State?

Dang it, now i need a 2 button mouse to test with.

And I gotta think of a workaround now :-\

Best i can think of is this,,

Note the Mouse.Button value on MouseDown and then use the _Menu() event to set it.
But the _Menu event needs to fire before it's known.


Private $iRightButton as Integer = -1
Private $iCurrentButton as Integer

Public Sub Form_MouseDown()

  $iCurrentButton = Mouse.Button  

End

Public Sub Form_Menu()

  If $iRightButton = -1 Then
    $iRightButton = $iCurrentButton
  Endif

End



Then i know if $iRightButton <> -1 then the Right (menu) button is known.
Darn i wish things were simpler

My centre button returns mouse.button=3 and Right click gives Mouse.Right=True.

Be careful using Mouse.Left and Mouse.Right though Bill as they are more like button "down" registers than button "click".

Ie , if you press left button while right button is also held down then Mouse.Right will be true with the left click. (if that makes sense)


Aah I just discovered this could just be a QT/GTK thing.

Seems Right and Middle button value is inverted with QT5 and GTK3

With QT5 Mouse.Button = 2 for Right 3 for Middle
With GTK3 Mouse.Button = 3 for Right 2 for Middle

So the code could possibly just be like this (to ensure is correct on both toolkits)

(no idea what wayland uses)


Private $iRight As Integer = 2
Private $iMiddle As Integer = 3

Public Sub Form_Open()
  
  If Component.IsLoaded("gb.gtk") Or If Component.IsLoaded("gb.gtk3") Then 
    $iRight = 3
    $iMiddle = 2
  Endif
  
End


Public Sub Form_MouseDown()

  If Mouse.Button = 1 Then
    Print "Click was Left"
  Else If Mouse.Button = $iRight Then
    Print "Click was Right"
  Else If Mouse.Button = $iMiddle Then
    Print "Click was Middle"
  Endif

End




PS. apologies Bill for slightly hijacking this thread with my outrageous need for accuracy ;)

But i hope you have got some good stuff out of it (i know I did) :)
